  1. In a small saucepan, bring the milk and cocoa powder to a boil, stirring with a whisk. Let cool.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until the mixture turns crumbly. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until smooth. At low speed, add the dry ingredients alternately with the cocoa mixture. Spoon the batter into the dish.
  4. Carefully pour the hot sauce over the batter. Bake for about 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Serve warm or cool.


  1. Amazing cake. I made half of the recipe in a 9” x 9” square glass Pyrex baking dish.

  2. Best chocolate pudding cake recipe ever. I did not have heavy cream, so used coffee cream and the result was still fantastic. Will definitely make again!

  3. Wow! Absolutely perfect. Do not change one single thing. This is a classic Québec recipe revamped Ricardo style and deserves the five stars! Enjoy!
