Ooey Gooey Hot Fudge Cake

This hot fudge cake comes together like magic to create its own sauce, and it takes only minutes to put together. I mix everything up in the baking dish to save a bowl.

Preheat the oven to 350 and grease an 8 X 8 baking dish. Use the dish or a bowl to mix the following ingredients together:

1 c. flour

3/4 c. sugar

2 T. cocoa

2 t. baking powder

1/4 t. salt

Stir in:

1/2 c. milk

2 t. oil

1 t. vanilla

Spread the mixture in bottom the pan. Sprinkle over the batter:

1 c. brown sugar

4 T. cocoa

Pour 1 3/4 c. of water over the whole thing, but don’t stir it up!

Bake the cake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. The shorter baking time gives more of a hot fudge consistency, while a longer baking time yields a thicker sauce, more like pudding. Serve hot fudge cake warm with ice cream or whipped cream if desired. As much as I don’t like cake and ice cream together, this one works really well. (Don’t hurt me! I know that opinion is unpopular. I said what I said, though.)
