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"


  • 1Preheat 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.
  • 2Use any smaller-sized cook-type chocolate or chocolate fudge pudding. Cook according to directions on the pudding box. Set aside to cool.
  • 3Empty any chocolate cake mix into a mixing bowl.
  • 4Reserve 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips. Mix remaining chocolate chips into the warm chocolate pudding.
  • 5When 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.
  • 6Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top of the cake mix.
  • 7Bake 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.
