Then you will love this chocolate pudding cake.  When you first make it you may think it is odd to pour water all over the dry batter before placing it in the oven.  It sounds crazy, but the water poured over the dry batter (no stirring) makes the pudding.    Beware!

right in the dish. Next add the milk, butter, vanilla stir well and spread
out evenly.

Mix all the DRY and pour this dry mix, evenly over the cake batter.
