Chocolate Pudding Cake

Disney Park Recipe:

Location: California Grill – Disney’s Contemporary ResortWalt Disney World


Yield: 1 9-inch cake


  • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate (roughly chopped)

  • ½ cup water

  • 2/3 cup sugar (divided)

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter (room temperature)

  • 5 large eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  2. Butter and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.

  3. In a heavy saucepan over high heat, mix together the water and 1/3 cup sugar. Stir until the sugar melts. Boil for 2 minutes.

  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and slowly add in the chocolate. Keep stirring until completely melted.

  5. In a medium bowl, mix together the eggs and 1/3 cup sugar. Beat until frothy and the mixture is pale yellow.

  6. Cut butter into pieces and slowly stir them into the saucepan. The butter will melt.

  7. While continuing to stir, stir in the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture. It will become smooth.

  8. Place the cake pan into a large roasting pan. Pour hot water into the roasting pan until reaches halfway up the pan. Pour the batter into the cake pan. Carefully move the pan to the oven. Do not let the water splash into the cake pan.

  9. Bake for 28 to 30 minutes. It will become firm.

  10. Once removed from the oven, remove the cake pan from the roasting pan. Let cool for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes carefully invert the cake on to a serving platter before serving.

Note: Disney notes the cake can be served with mint flavored marshmallows, chocolate meringue kisses, a spread of Nutella, or a mint whipped cream.
