R is for recipe...it's jolly well time! Chocolate Pudding Cake
Preheat the oven to 350. Grab a 9 x 12 pan. No, you won't be using it; just grab it. In a mixing bowl, stir together 1.25 cups flour, 3/4 c. sugar, 2 tsp. baking soda, 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/3 cup melted butter, 2 eggs, and 1 tsp. vanilla extract. Quickly pour this into the bottom of the ungreased 9 x 12 pan--oops, I lied, you do need it--and use the back of a large spoon or spatula to even out the batter. Sprinkle two chocolate bars, broken into small chunks, over the top of the batter. Mix together 1 cup sugar, 3 T unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 cup hot water, and 1 T vanilla and pour it over the broken chocolate and batter. Bake for 20-24 minutes until it rises, cracks on top, and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. That is all. Or, go to the store! Either one.

T is for treacle...it ain't spotted dick!

V is for velvet...a boozy ol' treat
4 eggs, separated; 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar; 1 c. semisweet chocolate chips; 1/4 cup boiling water; 1/4 cup Frangelico Liqueur. Beat egg whites until foamy gradually adding sugar until stiff. Whirl chocolate chips in blender until very finely grated. Add boiling water and blend until chocolate melts. Add egg yolks and Frangelico. Blend until very smooth. Gently fold chocolate mixture into whites. Spoon into dessert dishes. Chill until set. Garnish with hazelnuts, if desired. Better still: Go to a restaurant!

W is for wrestling...Headless dude wears a tux!
X is for xerox...Don't copy pudding.

Y is for you...Why not have one of these? (from Mrs. Beeton's Book of Household Management)
Z is for Zane Grey...chronicled cowboys...
Yeah, well. Cowboys LOVE pudding. The End.
