The old saying, "The sauce makes the pudding," is true in this case. The cake is on the dry side; the sauce is the "drencher." I found an almost identical recipe in the files of Elizabeth Throne Stamm. She says it came from an old Indian squaw in Brule, Wisconsin, who called it Pig Pudding-presumably it had the same effect on northern woodsmen that the celebrated enchantress, Circe, had on the men of Odysseus.

Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the well-beaten egg, the chocolate melted in the milk, then the sifted dry ingredients. Spoon into a well-buttered bread loaf pan and bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees F) for 20 minutes. Serve hot with Pig Pudding sauce.
