Hot Fudge Cake

Those of you who love chocolate are in for a treat! The picture does not do this dessert justice. It's best served hot or warm with ice cream or whip cream. It does not last long at our house. I only thought to take a picture right before the last piece was taken.

Do not double this recipe! Trust me it does not work.

Hot Fudge Cake
1 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
6 tablespoons cocoa, divided
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 3/4 cup hot water
whipped cream or ice cream

In a medium bowl combine flour, sugar, 2 tablespoons cocoa, baking powder and salt. Stir in the milk, oil and vanilla until smooth. Spread into an ungreased 8 inch x 8 inch pan. Combine brown sugar and remaining cocoa; sprinkle over batter. (At this point I usually put the pan in the oven so I don't have to move it) Pour hot water very carefully and slowly over all: do not stir! Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Top will be firm. Serve hot or warm with whip cream or ice cream.

The bottom is supposed to come out gooey like pudding. Oh you're going to love this. Take care and have a great weekend!
