My local newspaper published this recipe several years ago and described this as a Pillsbury Bake-Off runner-up. How wrong they were. It should've taken the blue ribbon! It uses on-hand ingredients and couldn't be simpler! The chocolatey flavor depends a lot on the quality of the cocoa one uses. I make it every February and it is a winner!

The pudding did not have an over whelming chocolate taste, more sweet sugar, but it was quick and easy to put together.

I don't know what I did wrong, but could not eat it. The bottom was dry & the top was to watery. Is there something missing in this recipe?

This cake was very good. I cut back on the cocoa just a bit, but will certainly be making it again. Thanks

This was so easy to make and I don't bake a lot. This came out perfect. But I think the next time I'll add a little coffee to bring out the chocolate flavor even more.

After reading the other reviews I made sure I used the correct pan size and followed the directions.It turned out GREAT, can't wait to make it again, supper easy.

The yummiest dessert in the world! Take note, it cooked a lot sooner than the time stated, around 35 minutes for me, so check it. You will not be disappointed, so delicious warm with vanilla ice cream! YUM!

I'm not sure what I did wrong but the pudding part stayed kinda watery and the cake underneath was dry. I might try this again but i doubt it.

I actually have not tried THIS recipe, but I have baked another one that has 1 cup of brown sugar in the final step ... just before you pour on the hot water. It makes for a very tasty pudding sauce. You might want to try adding brown sugar, if this particular recipe seems bland to you, as some have rated it.

My grandmother and mother used to make this and it was wonderful, I can't wait to make it myself. As to the less than 5 star reviews, why would you rate something "just to see the reviews"? You don't need to review it to read the reviews and to the other one - good, bad or indifferent, I just don't think it's fair to review the recipe more than once unless you are changing your opinion.
