Behold...Brownie Pudding Cake:
Anyhoo, I have also heard this called Chocolate Cobbler, but where I come from, it's always been Brownie Pudding Cake. It's three desserts in one. What could be more perfect?
It's really easy to make, too. Start with flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, milk, melted butter, vanilla and chocolate chips. Mix it all together and spread in an 8x8 banking pan.
Now, whisk together some hot water, more cocoa powder and some vanilla. Pour it, gently, on top of the batter. No, really. Go ahead. It's ok.
And then you'll have this:
Now very carefully pop it into the oven and bake it until it's done. My son and I had a nice talk about science once when we made this dessert. The leavening in the batter will cause it to rise up through the water/cocoa mixture, creating a very yummy sauce on its' way through.
See the sauce, oozing up around the edges? Yeah, I know. Terrible photo. Sorry.
Probably doesn't need to said, but eat it while it's warm. I highly recommend serving this with ice cream. You can dust it with a little powdered sugar, too. But I forgot.
Here's what it looks like after you start serving:
