Chocolate & Brandy Pudding Cake

I am a chocoholic. This cake is one of my guilty pleasures. When I'm really feeling naughty, I make the "Cherry Variation" noted below. I do not use a pudding mix-it because this cake makes its own pudding. This cake is so moist that you might have to eat it with a spoon. ;-)

I will post pix next time I make it...
