also have overcooked from being in for 40 minutes since it was smaller. But
basically it was dry on top, and the pudding was tasteless 8-(.

I've made this several times. Since the topping (which becomes the pudding) has so much sugar in it, I decrease the sugar in the cake part by half. I also decrease the water poured over the top. The full 1 3/4 cup makes a syrup. Decreasing it to about 1 cup makes a pudding. I think that once I increased the cocoa in the cake part by about 1 Tbsp with good results. (After measuring it out, I had just a little left in the tin, so I dumped it in.) If you like mocha flavor, you could add a bit of instant coffee to the topping or the cake, as well.
