I absolutely love boozy desserts! If you're a huge fan as well then this recipe was created specifically for you. This easy-to-make chocolate pudding cake is the ultimate comfort dessert. It's decadent and consists of a layer of whiskey fudge sauce which magically forms underneath the cake while baking. I like to serve mine warm with a scoop of dulce de leche ice cream.



Whiskey Hot Fudge:

For Serving:


  1. For the cake: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine the cake flour, granulated sugar, 1/4 cup of cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and cinnamon into a 1.5- to 2-quart round or oval baking dish. Whisk until combined.  
  3. In a liquid measuring cup, whisk to combine the milk, vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Pour into the baking dish and whisk with the dry ingredients until fully incorporated. 
  4. For the whiskey hot fudge: In a medium bowl, whisk together the light brown sugar, cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Evenly sprinkle the mixture over the cake batter.  
  5. In a heatproof liquid measuring cup, stir to combine the whiskey and boiling water, then slowly pour it over the cocoa mixture. Do not stir.  
  6. Bake until the center is almost set, with a pudding-like texture, 32 to 37 minutes.   
  7. For serving: Let the cake cool for 15 minutes, then dust with cocoa powder and serve with your favorite ice cream.
