Brownie Pudding

I know what you're thinking.  Brownies and pudding have their respective places.  I mean, one is eaten off of a napkin and the other has to be put into a bowl (or a goblet if you're fancy).  So how do you combine the two?

Honestly, I don't know how it works.  It's like magic. 

Some things are better left unexplored.  We need a little more whimsy in our lives.  Just leave it be.  It's magic.

Recipe from Better Homes and Gardens
1 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. milk
2 Tbsp. cooking oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. chopped pecans (or walnuts)
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1 1/2 c. boiling water
1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder

1.  Grease 8x8x2 inch pan.

2.  Stir together flour, granulated sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.  Stir in the milk, oil and vanilla.  Add in the nuts.  Pour brownie mixture into pan.
3.  In another medium bowl, stir together brown sugar, boiling water, and 1/4 c. cocoa powder.  Pour over the brownie mixture in the pan.
4.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.  Serve warm with ice cream on top!
When you cut into it, the 'pudding' will have mysteriously moved down to the bottom.  It is like a brownie and hot fudge in one pan!  a.k.a. Magic!

    1. Thank you! I think next time I make it, I will try it with a different brownie recipe and see if it still works (one that's more fudgy!)
