Chocolate Loving Spoon Cake Recipe #1

While there isn’t an exact copycat recipe, there are plenty that are very similar to this fan favorite. The first recipe we’ll be looking at is inspired by a recipe from Pretty Simple Sweet and is the most amazing chocolate pudding cake!


The ingredients you’ll need for this recipe are:

For the cake:

  • 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup of whole milk
  • 1/4 cup of melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

For the pudding sauce:

  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup of light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups of water (boiling)


Now all you need to do is:

Step 1: Prepare

Gather all of the ingredients you need for this recipe and preheat your oven to 350F. Grab a square baking pan (8″ preferably) and grease.

Step 2: Make the batter

Grab a bowl and sift the cocoa, baking powder, salt, and flour. Mix well and then add the sugar. In a separate bowl, add the milk, butter, and vanilla and mix well. Now gradually add this bowl to the dry ingredients and stir until well combined. Then pour the batter into your prepared baking ban.

Step 3: Make the pudding

Grab a bowl and add the cocoa powder, granulated sugar, and brown sugar – mix well. Pour this mixture on top of your batter and then pour the hot water over the top. It’s important not to stir at this point and leave as it is.

Step 4: Bake

Place in the center of your preheated oven for around 25-30 minutes. The sides of the cake will start to come away from the pan; at this point, you’ll know the cake is ready. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.

Step 5: Serve

After around 15 minutes, your cake will be cooked enough to eat. It’s better to enjoy this cake warm and serve with ice cream. You can also reheat this cake in the microwave if you need to.
