Mocha-Fudge Pudding Cake

Cooking Light
You basically have a pudding layer underneath the cakey part--don't mistake it for being underdone.
9 servings (serving size: 1 3-inch square and 1/4 cup ice cream)

3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine, softened
1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk
1 tablespoon Kahlua (coffee-flavored liqueur) or cold brewed coffee or water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
Cooking spray
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
1 1/4 cups boiling water
2 1/4 cups vanilla fat-free ice cream


Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine 3/4 cup sugar and butter in a bowl; beat at medium speed of a mixer for 3 minutes. Add milk and liqueur; beat well. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, 1/4 cup cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a bowl; gradually add to sugar mixture, beating until well-blended. Spoon batter into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray.

Combine 1/4 cup cocoa, 2/3 cup sugar, and coffee granules in a small bowl; sprinkle over batter. Pour boiling water over batter (do not stir). Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until cake springs back when touched lightly in the center (cake will not test clean when a wooden pick is inserted in center). Serve warm with ice cream.
