Chocolate Sauce Pudding

From "NANTUCKET ISLAND COOK BOOK", recipe submitted by Mary E. Coleman. It interests me as our Nantucket relatives were named Coleman, so she may be related.
This cookbook was my mother-in-law's and she was born on Nantucket. I just recently found the cookbook in a box in the attic, many years after my MIL passed away. I think this treasure is fascinating reading, and I am enjoying trying the recipes. I thought I'd share some of them with you, as they are good old fashioned home cooking from islanders who didn't have too many conveniences like we do in 2014.

Ingredients

FIRST: MIX IN BAKING PAN-

1/2 c
sugar
1/4 c
cocoa
pinch
salt
2 c
boiling water

IN A BOWL: CREAM TOGETHER-

1/3 c
sugar
1 Tbsp
butter
1/2 c
milk
1
egg, well-beaten
1 c
flour
1 tsp
vanilla
2 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt

Step-By-Step

1Stir together the first four ingredients in the baking pan, until the sugar is dissolved. Let stand while mixing the dough.
2Cream the sugar and butter, add milk, egg, flour, vanilla, baking powder and salt. Drop by spoonsful into the chocolate sauce, but DO NOT STIR.
3As old fashioned cooks often did not write down everything in the directions, this recipe did not state the baking time or the oven temperature, other than to "BAKE IN A HOT OVEN". I AM ASSUMING 350 DEGREES, AND ABOUT 25 MINUTES.
