Chocolate Fudge Pudding Cake

This is one of my husband’s most requested desserts and he loves it served with whipped cream. His mother sent me the recipe that she clipped from a newspaper with the following note. “My mom created this recipe from a dessert my dad served on ferries in British Columbia in the 1930s while saving for University tuition.” Judy Martinez-Ross Moab, Utah
