Easy Brownie Pudding

Sharing is caring!

I have distinct memories of growing up in my parents’ house in the fall.  My mom was stingy with the heating so it was always pretty cold in the house.  And when we had to turn the clock back, the house felt very dark most of the night.  I remember when the heater would turn on I would literally cover it with my body just to warm up.

But there was always one time in the evening when it was bright and warm.  That was at dinnertime, when my family always gathered around the table for a sit-down meal at the same time every day.  It was the one thing I could always count on.  My mom always made warm and comforting meals for cold autumn nights.  And she frequently made warm and comforting desserts as well.  One of the desserts she made that I loved was her brownie pudding.  It was warm and chocolatey, oozing into the empty spaces in my stomach and filling it up.  She didn’t make chocolate desserts a lot because she doesn’t love chocolate, so it made it all the more exciting when we had it.

It’s a shame that I only recently re-discovered this recipe, because it is SUPER easy to make.  It takes one bowl to mix up and very easy to serve.  It comes out looking a little boring but then you carve your spoon into it to reveal the hidden thick fudgey goo below.  This is like making an instant brownie sundae–with a built-in chocolate fudge.
