Gluten Free Chocolate Pudding Cake, with it’s rich brownie-like cake on top, and warm rich pudding underneath, is the perfect quick chocolate fix. Top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and it’s perfect.
If you’ve never made a pudding cake before – they are kind of magical.
You mix together a thick cake batter (I do this right in the baking dish, less dishes to wash that way), top it with a sugar and cocoa mixture, and pour boiling water over top. That’s it, no stirring.
When you bake it, magic happens. It creates a wonderful chocolate cake on top, while a smooth chocolate pudding is created under the cake.
Because I include espresso powder in with the sugar mixture that is sprinkled on top – this actually gives the pudding a wonderful mocha flavor.
The espresso powder is totally optional though, feel free to omit it if you don’t have it or don’t want the slightly darker color to your cake.
Gluten Free Chocolate Pudding Cake, sometimes called Chocolate Cobbler, is perfect for any level of baker. If you have never baked gluten free before, or if you are a pro around the kitchen, this recipe is easy enough to whip up in a few minutes.
Although you don’t want the whole cake to look like pudding when it is finished baking, you don’t want to over-bake it either. It should be like a brownie on top, and pudding underneath.
Be sure to let the gluten free Chocolate Pudding Cake cool for about 10 minutes before serving. This pudding cake is great served warm. I like to top mine with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
