Chocolate Pudding Cake

Here is a sweet dessert, perfect for Valentine’s Day. Chocolate pudding and chocolate cake all in one is a real treat. This is an old-fashioned dessert recipe for chocolate lovers. It uses simple ingredients and is quick and easy to make. While this dish is baking an amazing thing happens. The thin sauce you poured on the top forms into a pudding at the bottom of the baking dish and the cake batter you placed on the bottom goes to the top. Cocoa powder is a good source of magnesium and an excellent source of antioxidants. Cocoa is known to reduce blood pressure and to be heart-healthy. Researchers at Harvard Medical School, the Brigham, and the Women’s Hospital in Boston found that regular consumption of a standardized cocoa beverage improved blood vessel function, especially among seniors. You might want to add a cup of cocoa with your chocolate pudding cake, for more love for your heart. For some of us, you can never have too much chocolate. Just remember dark chocolate, without the excessive sugar, is the best choice over milk chocolate for health reasons. Happy Valentines day chocolate lovers.
