Chocolate Pudding Cake
Why I Love This Recipe
When I was a child we used to have this delicious dessert a lot. My Aunt Francis made it in a large white enamel baking dish and it feed a lot of people, which was a good thing because there was 7 kids in my family and 5 kids in my Aunt's family plus the adults, a large crowd indeed. I have scaled the recipe down some to fit my family.

1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1-1/2 cups boiling water
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a mixing bowl stir together flour, white sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Mix in milk, oil and vanilla until smooth.
