Fudge Pudding Cake with Ice Cream: Pink Ribbon RecipeHi everybody :)
The mere word 'Fudge' lured me to this recipe, then I saw the picture! WOW! Cake and ice cream, what a double treat! This fantastic REPEAT bakes up with two layers a pudding on the bottom and a cake on top! A word of caution: make sure to use a tall pan when making the cake or your pudding layer will overflow. I LOVE this fudgey pudding cake, it taste like a brownie.
This recipe may be a good choice for cancer patients because it's great for nausea and mouth sores, two of the most common side effects of cancer treatments. The doctor advises dessert can be an important part of a meal because it often provides plenty of calories per bite.
This is the last of my Pink Ribbon Recipes for Breast Cancer Awareness Month for now, but the fight of breast cancer survivors continue. This is all of our fight too, so stay strong, be healthy, get your mammogram ...please.

There will not be a post tomorrow, I'm taking a day off in commemoration of all those who lost their battle to breast cancer. This post is in honor of my mom, who lost her battle the end of this month, eight years ago.
