Melt in Your Mouth Brownie Pudding


One of Tom's favorite desserts from his childhood is now one of our favorites. I haven't made it for a while and forgot how good it was. We definitely need to make it more often.

It is a miracle of baking. Decadent, moist brownie baked in a pool of chocolatey heaven. One step, but miraculously two divine desserts.

It is very easy to make and just bakes as you eat your supper.

This is Tom's mom's recipe, I have taken a few tiny liberties and altered the recipe ever so slightly, hopefully to no one's offense.

Brownie Pudding
Brownie
1 c. flour, minus 2 T
4 T unsweetened cocoa
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t salt
3/4 c sugar
1/2 c milk
1 t vanilla
2 T melted butter

Combine all ingredients and spread in a lightly greased 8 x 8 pan.

Topping
3/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c cocoa
1/2 t salt

Mix topping ingredients and sprinkle over batter.

Mix 3/4 c hot milk and 3/4 c hot water. Pour over entire mixture. This is what makes the pudding while it bakes. The original is only water, but the milk makes it a little richer, but it is great with just water, too.

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream or even just straight cream.

Bon Appetit!

Hum-m-m-m- I think I just had a heart attack reading that recipe. Promise it's worth it?

its actually not that bad for you. only 2 T of butter. omit the milk in the pudding. use lowfat milk in the brownie and it is practically fat free. you might just have to eat it with nonfat vanilla yogurt.

Holy cow. If I had to choose something to induce diabetes, I'd choose this.

I have the same kind of collections of old t-shirts from my runners! You can join the squares, stretch stitch is best, to make the top and back it with something soft and stretchy for the back.

The other way I have heard of is to iron lightweight iron-on pellon to the back of the squares to give them body and then use a back of woven fabric. I would use a softly bonded bat for either one of the methods. Then tie them like any other tied quilt.

If I get the other projects finished and get to those, to get them out of my sewing room, I will let you know how it all turns out. I am partial to the soft and snuggly idea myself. Astretch stitch on your sewing machine might be pretty important so that the seams don't get stretched and popped!
