This recipe was given to me by a friend 35 years ago. She called it chocolate cake. I added the quote marks around the word "cake", because this is not really cake, but a triple-chocolate, moist, decadent chocolate brownie thing that is just yummy. People who usually don't indulge in more than a bite of dessert come back for seconds with blissful looks on their faces. :) You can serve it with ice cream, heavy cream, whipped cream, or any other sauce, but it is perfect as is.

How to Make Chocolate "Cake"


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x13 pan. You can use 1/3 cup of the cake mix instead of flour if preferred.
  2. Use any smaller-sized cook-type chocolate or chocolate fudge pudding. Cook according to directions on the pudding box. Set aside to cool.
  3. Empty any chocolate cake mix into a mixing bowl.
  4. Reserve 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips. Mix remaining chocolate chips into the warm chocolate pudding.
  5. When pudding/chocolate chip mix is partially cooled but still warm, stir it into the dry cake mix until moistened, then pour/scrape it into the 9x13 pan.
  6. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top of the cake mix.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Cool completely and cut into squares. Or just eat it hot out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Either way it's bliss.
