Brownie Pudding

AlltheRest

Yesterday I needed some chocolate.

 

Not just any chocolate.

Not a candy bar.  Not hot chocolate.

 

Something kinda special.  But not a pain.

I’m a picky jerk sometimes.

 

I wanted, like… a Chocolate Lava cake from Chilis or Applebees or any sort of American chain restaurant where they sell a massive cake that oozes chocolate.

But I didn’t want to drive anywhere.

Lazy, picky jerk.

 

So I turned to my best gal-pal, Ina.

I am kinda-sorta in love her.

And her recipes.

 

So this Brownie Pudding…I took her recipe and changed it up a bit.  Sorry Ina, but just a few changes here and there so it was more me.

 

It’s the kind of recipe that you’ll stick your face in (the me part).

But it’s also kinda fancy-ish so you could serve it in a public place too (the Ina part).

 

Just, if you do make it to eat in public, make an extra to stick your face in.  Best of both.

Brownie Pudding.

PhotobucketSo first make your batter. You’ll also want to stick your face in the batter. It’s completely ridiculously delicious.
PhotobucketBeat your eggs and sugar together (I used both brown and white sugar)
PhotobucketSift in your flour and cocoa powder.
PhotobucketDon’t forget to add butter. Melted Butter.
PhotobucketThen add in some chocolate chips. Use semi-sweet, milk, whatever you want. I actually used Hershey’s Baking Kisses. Love those little guys.
PhotobucketSpread the batter into your pan and then place the pan in a larger pan and fill that up with hot water.
It’s an important step.
PhotobucketWhen it’s baked you have decisions to make.

Fancy and sweet in individual portions?
PhotobucketOr gluttonous and well, blissful right from the pan?
Photobucket
Either way…you need to do this.

Brownie Pudding
 
serves 6-8
Ingredients
  • 2 sticks butter, melted
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder (I prefer Hershey's Special Dark)
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325°
  2. Melt butter in microwave safe dish and set aside.
  3. Spray a 2 qt baking dish with cooking spray.
  4. In a large mixing bowl beat both sugars and eggs for 10 minutes on medium-high speed until mixture thickens.
  5. Turn mixer to low. Add in vanilla and sift cocoa and flour into mixture, stirring until just combined.
  6. With mixer still on low pour in melted butter.
  7. Stir in chocolate chips.
  8. Spread batter into prepared baking dish. Place baking dish into a larger dish and fill larger dish with hot water, coming halfway up the side of brownie dish.
  9. Bake for 1 hour. Edges will appear set, but a toothpick will not come out clean.
  10. Let cool about 20-30 minutes and serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

Chocolate abundance, and a recipe adapted from Ina. This is a guaranteed hit! I want to dig right in – those pics have me hooked!

Holy cow. I applaud you for somehow managing to scoop some into a cute little dish! I would be the full-on glutton who ate straight from the pan, and probably without a spoon.

Oh my goodness. This pregnancy has kicked my sweet tooth into overdrive and I know that feeling. That “I need something chocolate and I’m not talking Hershey bar” kinda craving and this would DOMINATE that craving in a heartbeat.

I totally understand those cravings. For me they happen, oh…once a month or so. This is ideal for times like those. Definitely.

This looks too good to be true–and with that melty ice cream on top? Oh my gosh. I need this waiting for me when I come home with the baby. 😉

Oh why did I look at this? I’m drooling! Seriously drooling! I’m the same way about my desserts… I just NEED to have something a little decadent (hot chocolate just won’t do it sometimes).

I love that you being lazy involves making Brownie Pudding from scratch. Because me being lazy usually involves handfuls of chocolate chips shoveled in my mouth while hiding in the pantry so my husband doesn’t see. This looks incredible!

I have to to say that I adore your blog and have made & shared lots.

I thought that the chocolate peanutbutter cupcookies where my fav. I was wrong, wrong, wrongity, wrong, wrong. This one should come with a warning. I just finished this (no,not the whole dish) OMG.

I’ll be crashing soon. Cate

It is perfectly acceptable to be a jerk when it comes to chocolate, us ladies need our standards! The gooeyness is out of control!

I want to make this for dessert for Christmas, but was wondering if I could put it all together earlier in the day and then bake it later on? Or, should I bake it earlier on and just heat it back up a little before serving it??

Oh my, this looks delicious! Just the other night I was thinking how wonderful it would be to eat lava cake! It looks like this recipe will allow me to do just that. Thank you for sharing! :)

I attempted to make brownies tonight from scratch and ended up with something very similar to this recipe! Smells delicious and I was upset that the brownies didn’t firm up, but after seeing this recipe, maybe that’s ok.

Servings 6-8? That is seriously not going to happen. 1-2 maybe? Haha! I saw this and must make it. Like 5 minutes ago. Yuuuummmm! Thank you! I think maybe a dollop of peanut butter on top would be good too…what’s a few more calories, right? 😉

[…] Brownie Pudding- Oh brownie pudding…aka the reason I needed a Nike Fuel Band…how I love thee!  This dessert is so addicting, so rich, so chocolatey, and so simple to make!  It also refrigerates and reheats wonderfully.  I first made in on NYE to take to a friend’s house for dinner, and since then I’m embarrassed to admit how many more times I’ve made it.  Just make it, trust me!

My family ate ourselves sick. I vowed never to make this recipe again because we have no self control. That was 3 weeks ago. The ingredients are in my kitchen for a get together tomorrow. I hope it makes it there!

I’VE BEEN INTENDING TO MAKE THIS RECIPE FOR A WHILE BUT NEVER GOT AROUND TO IT. THE OTHER DAY I WAS SHOPPING FOR A HOUSEWARMING GIFT FOR A FRIEND IN MARSHALLS/HOMEGOODS. AND TO MY PLEASANT SURPRISE I SAW A BOXED VERSION OF THIS FROM BAREFOOT CONTESSA FOR 3.99$ I JUST MADE IT IT WAS AMAZING ALL I HAD TO DO WAS ADD BUTTER AND EGGS. VERY DECADENT AND RICH
