  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup of cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/4 cup of oil
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1/2 cup of boiling water
  • Filling:
  • Good old Chocolate Pudding
  • Instant Chia Chocolate Pudding


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a medium size baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In another large bowl, whisk the sugar, cocoa powder, egg, milk, oil and vanilla and whisk it well. Then add in the flour mixture.
  4. Add the hot boiling water to the cake batter ad whisk it well.
  5. Pour the cake batter on top of the parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes until it sets. Let the cake cool down for 10 minutes while you get the pudding ready.
  6. If using thegood old chocolate pudding, remove it from the fridge for about 10 minutes while the cake was baking to remove some of the chill out.
  7. If using the instant chocolate chia pudding, just use it right away.
  8. Take a cookie cutter (size and shape of your choice) and cut out as many pieces of the chocolate cake as you can.
  9. Then take about a tablespoon of the pudding and top each cake with it, spreading all the way to cover the tops and sides of each cake piece.
  10. Stack those pudding cake pieces on top of each other—as high or low as you like.
  11. Finish off the sides and tops with extra pudding. Take the left out cake pieces that are wasted and crumble them into tiny crumbs.
  12. Stick those cake crumbs on the tops and sides of each stacked cake to cover it all up and serve.
