Chocolate pudding cake

After a long time, I am discovering the joys of baking again (don't ask when I baked earlier, I did bake earlier). I tried again one very easy, but delicious pudding cake I have baked long time back, once for friends and once for family and received appreciations galore. I am sharing the recipe here.

Chocolate pudding cake

Part 1
1 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
a pinch of salt

Part 2
3/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Part 3
2/3 cup brown sugar (reduce this to half if you want the pudding to be a little less sweet)
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Part 4
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 3/4 cups boiling water

Thoroughly mix all ingredients in Part 1 with a fork in a 9-inch baking pan. Now add Part 2 and continue mixing. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Keep the water in Part 4 for boiling. Sprinkle all of Part 3 over the mixture. Don't mix. Add the vanilla essence into the boiled water and pour over the mixture. Bake at 180°C for 30 minutes. The cake will come up in the middle and the pudding will be bubbling around.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and then wait for the compliments.
The good thing is, all the mixing is done in the same pan, no beating. It is as simple as that.

If you think this itself is difficult, what the heck, call me up and come over. I will bake it for you.
Don't forget to pick up the vanilla ice cream on your way :)
