Chocolate Upside Down Pudding

Here’s an old school pudding recipe. You could certainly make this with Jello instant pudding, or even Jello “cook for a few minutes” pudding, but why would you when you can make it from scratch?

Chocolate Upside Down Pudding (Marnie)

1 c flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp B.P. (baking powder)

3/4 c white sugar

1/2 c milk

2 tbsp cocoa

2 tbsp melted butter

1 c walnuts

First mixture. Mix and put into greased pan. 8×8.

1 c brown sugar

4 tbsp cocoa

Mix. Dump onto first mixture.

Pour on 2 c boiling water. Bake 40 min 350. Turn upside down – serve warm. Wh cream if possible.

  1. It is real comfort food! There was a while there after we were married that you could buy pudding cake mix in a box. I think you did have to pour the boiling water over that one too.


  2. I made this exactly as the recipe instructs. There is some stuff left out that I am sure only the writer of the recipe knew.
    1. 1st, 2nd mixtures and water probably needs to be mixed together…I didn’t and I got a nice chocolate crust on the top.
    2. If you follow the recipe you will not be able to turn it out upside down…you will have dry inexpedience everywhere.
    3. I spooned some out…mixed it all up and it was good with the crust mixed in..

    I am going to give this a try again, only mixing it all up…who knows what will happen…but I love challenges..

    Has anyone else tried this one??


  3. Good greif…I forgot to add the flippin Milk…no wonders it did what it did….scratch what I posted before…making it again..


  4. thank you for this recipe. i have been looking for it. i use to make it out of an old cookbook and could not find it. i usually always write down recipes but for some reason i didnt. i wanted the scratch recipe. it is so awesome with vanilla ice cream. i always knew this a dump cake. thanks again :o)
