Chocolate Bomb Pudding Cake

Purple wanted to bake a cake. A special cake.

A chocolate cake.

She found this recipe, and tweaked it just a little bit.

This is what she did.

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, sift together-
– 1 cup flour
– 3/4 tsp baking powder
– 3/4 tsp salt
– 1/3 cup cocoa powder

In the blender, puree together
– 6 oz silken tofu
– 1/2 cup milk
– 1 cup sugar
– 1 tsp vanilla essence
– 3 tbsp canola oil
– 3 tsp applesauce

Add the puree to the flour mixture to make a batter.

In another bowl, whisk together
– 1 and 1/3 cup boiling water
– 2/3 cup sugar
– 1/3 cup cocoa powder
– 4 oz bittersweet chocolate chips

Here's where she ran into trouble.

The recipe called for a springiform pan, and layering the chocolate puree on top of the batter, so that the chocolate would explode when the pan would be released. She had no springiform pan.

– Add the batter to ungreased silicone bundt pan.

– Add 1/4 of the chocolate puree on top of the batter, and  the rest in a separate pan.
– Bake both for 45 minutes.
– When the cake was done, she turned it out and added the puree on top! There was plenty left over.

P had a slice with the strawberries, and A had two slices with raspberry sorbet.

They both lived happily ever after.
