Hot Chocolate Pudding #BakingBloggers

A few months back I shared a recipe for Master Mix and said I'd tell you all about one of my all time favorite recipes using this  Master Mix
Life got in the way and tripped me a few times since then, and I kept meaning to make it, but again, I'd put it off and put it off, and, well,  you get the drift.

I joined a group called Baking Bloggers a few months ago, and every month we have a challenge.
I kinda like challenges, so long as they're the baking kind.  I know how to rise to an occasion then.
So this month the challenge was Baking with Small Appliances.

Well, my mind went immediately to Crock Pots, but I've made cakes before in Crock pots and while I knew I could do it again, I wanted to try my hand at using a toaster oven.  I recently got one, and hadn't used it.

And I've been craving this dessert for a very long time, a really long, long time.  as in years?  I'm not totally crazy about chocolate cake.   I do make a killer chocolate cake though, however I go weak in the knees when I'm faced with warm chocolate desserts. 
I swoon, I beg, I have even been known to lick the plate, and the serving dish and the serving spoon and...

Sorry, I got carried away a little there.

I made a couple of small servings, cause as I said I'm powerless when it comes to a warm chocolate cake with sauce, or in this case a warm chocolate pudding. sigh

Powerless, with the inability to say no to a second helping or a third, oh heck, I'll just eat the whole thing kind of mindset. 

This chocolate pudding makes its own sauce, and while you can serve it plain, it tastes really good with a dollop of whipped cream on top.

This is a great dessert to whip up in a hurry and tastes magnificent with a dollop of whipped cream on top or some ice cream.

1/4 cup chocolate chips - totally optional

Topping:
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder
1 1/4 cup water

instructions:


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 6x8 inch pan, set aside.
Stir sugar, cocoa, cinnamon and nuts into mix.
Stir in milk and coffee extract and beat for 3 minutes
Spread out in greased pan.

Pour over the contents of the pan.

  1. Toaster ovens can be indispensable. Especially when you get a hankering for a wonderful, warm, chocolate pudding.

    1. This is actually a hand me down from a friend and is the first one I've owned but I think I like it. And for this pudding, it was perfect.

  2. I used to have a toaster oven, but it couldn't have done this! The toaster ovens of today are so much better!

    1. This is just a teeny little one, but I may just have to invest in a larger one. I had fun with it. And can now think of several things I could make if it were only a little bigger.

  3. I love my toaster oven. I even finished a loaf of bread in mine when my oven broke mid bake! This sounds delicious.

    1. This is just a little one, but I think I may have to invest in a larger one later one. I know I couldn't have fit a loaf of bread in mine to finish off. I baked some Yorkshire pudding in a friends large toaster oven once and was very impressed with how well it worked.

  4. Love this dark chocolatey dream of a dessert, Sid! In our house, cream is never optional.

    1. I have to say, this is not for the faint of chocolate heart. You get a major chocolate rush with this pudding. And it may be making another appearance soon. very soon. I love it with just a little lightly sweetened heavy cream poured over although the whipped cream also tastes good.
