This is a recipe that has been handed down in my family from my father's side of the family, the Bozarth's. Growing up this was a special treat to have for dessert - and my father's favorite - as it is an extremely moist cake covered in the brown sugar sauce. For all you chocolate lovers, don't be afraid to quarter or half this pudding/cake and enjoy by yourself or with that special someone. I am not ashamed to say that I had some as dinner one night.
