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.

So first make your batter. You’ll also want to stick your face in the batter. It’s completely ridiculously delicious.
Baking ingredients on a countertop, including butter, eggs, cocoa powder, brown sugar, flourBeat your eggs and sugar together (I used both brown and white sugar)
Beaten eggs and sugar in a stand mixerSift in your flour and cocoa powder.

Chocolate chips in chocolate batterSpread 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.

No ice cream?

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

I don’t have an oval 2 quart baking dish – how about baking it in a 9×13, and then sitting it in a 10×15 pan [with sides] for the water bath? Thanks! So funny to see this posted on Facebook today – I was just looking for a brownie pudding recipe this morning!!!

Hello! This was great at a friends house! She gave me the recipe, but since it’s only for a couple of us, I was wondering – if we make 1/2 the recipe, should I cut baking time in half? ?

Also, after mixing everything and pouring into pan, I was unable to actually bake it and had to put it in the fridge… for a day. So today I let it sit in room temp and picked up where the recipe said to place in hot water bath… Hope it won’t mess up the final product ?

Wondering what would happen if you don’t add any flour. How drastic would it change the result?

I made this a year ago and it was perfect. But I just made it for the 2nd time this year and it turned out terrible!! I followed the directions precisely, however after 50 min of baking it was all thick dense and solid. What did I do wrong?

Just made this with Truvia Baking Blend in two little dishes for my husband and me and it was AMAZING! Thank you so much for sharing! This is definitely getting printed for my recipe book!

Ever since she refused to meet a child from the Make-a-Wish foundation (he was dying of cancer and she didn’t have time for him), I have hated Ina. Boycotted her, really. But this recipe is simply to great-looking to withstand! I must make it! I can console myself that I am really making YOUR recipe, not hers…

I made this yesterday and my sister and I couldn’t stop eating it was chocolaty, dark, and chocolatyyy.. it’s the ultimate chocolate recipe!! I’m making one today for myself and one tomorrow for my friends. It’s addictive! It’s even better if you use a deep dish.

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

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!

It was even funnier to watch the dinner party guests attempt to move away from the dish tonight. Even the food snobs the gave me the side eye when I said brownie “pudding” were hopeless against its powers. I had to email my brother the link to your blog at the table. He was declaring that we needed to destroy the recipe and then planning for the next time we need to make it. Lol! Thanks for sharing this!
