We are all missing Disney. As a lifelong Floridian and annual passholder, we definitely took for granted being able to go to Walt Disney World whenever we want. We’ve been getting our Disney fix by watching Disney+, learning with Disney at home with drawing lessons and the amazing Imagineering in a Box course. We love all of the free Disney printables and activity sheets available as well. Also, we listen to Disney music and still wear some of our favorite Disney shirts. But what about the food? How can we have Disney food at home? Well get ready for this amazing Disney Parks Churro Bites Recipe straight from Disney Parks Blog!

And don’t worry, most of the ingredients are common items you probably have at home. Since we are all staying home as much as possible, this is very helpful!

Chocolate Pudding Cake from Disney’s Contemporary Resort
And for a bonus of Cooking Up Magic from Home, how about this indulgent dessert recipe from California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort? That resort is one of my all time favorites, and most nostalgic. In fact, my family used to stay there when I was a kid and it’s one of my favorite Disney memories! This recipe is perfect for this prolonged time at home.
Chocolate Pudding Cake
12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
1/2 cup water
2/3 cup sugar, divided
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature, cut into small pieces
5 large eggs
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch round cake pan with nonstick spray with flour; set aside.
Combine water and 1/3 cup sugar in a heavy saucepan over high heat, stirring until sugar melts. Bring to a boil, and cook 2 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat; slowly add chocolate, stirring until completely melted. Stir in butter, a few pieces at a time, until completely melted.
Combine eggs and remaining 1/3 cup sugar in a medium bowl; beat with an electric mixer until pale yellow and very frothy.
Slowly stream chocolate-butter mixture into egg mixture, stirring until smooth and satiny.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Place cake pan inside of a larger roasting pan; pour hot water around cake pan until water reaches halfway up sides of cake pan. Carefully transfer pans to oven.
Bake 28 to 30 minutes until just firm.
Remove cake pan from roasting pan and let cool 30 minutes. Carefully invert cake onto a large plate before serving, or serve directly from pan.
Cook’s note: Cake can be served with mint flavored marshmallows, chocolate meringue kisses, a spread of Nutella, or mint whipped cream.
