Just be warned….this Chocolate Orange Pudding Cake is highly addictive! I really enjoyed it served up warm but I also may have been caught eating it straight out of the dish. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Ever since I was a kid I’ve never liked anything that was flavored with orange. Things like orange popsicles, orange ju-jubes, orange jello, or orange pop would be tossed to the side. But, that all changed when I tried orange-flavored chocolate! There’s something about the combination that tastes so delicious and it reminds me of Christmastime (probably because of Terry’s Chocolate Oranges that line the shelves around this time). So when I found this recipe for Chocolate Pudding Cake I decided to add my own little twist and add orange to it!
I have to admit that when I was making this I really wasn’t sure if it was going to turn out. It seemed too runny that I was sure I was going to end up with a big dish of wasted ingredients. To my surprise, it turned out amazing and I was so happy with the flavor and texture. The only thing I would change next time is the dish I used. I found that my dish was too deep so I had to cook it a bit longer until the middle was fully cooked.
This would be the perfect dish to make when you have company over for dinner. Pop it in the oven before you sit down to eat and you’ll have warm Chocolate Orange Pudding Cake ready for dessert! With winter in full swing, this warm Chocolate Orange Pudding Cake is perfect for warming your belly!
