There has been a request that I share the Hot Fudge Sundae Cake recipe. Now that the last of this dessert has gone to a better place (namely my stomach), I'll relive the chocolate goodness by sharing the recipe with you.

Hot Fudge Sundae Cake

The first part is easy. It's basically like making a batch of brownies.

1 cup flour
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 T cocoa
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
2 T vegetable oil
1 t vanilla
1 C nuts (or chocolate chips)

Heat the oven at 350. Mix flour, granular sugar, 2 T cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Add milk, oil, vanilla, and nuts. Spread in a 9x9x2 pan.

So far, so good. The next part is the "hot fudge sundae" part of the cake. It may seem crazy, but it works. Have FAITH.

1 C packed brown sugar
1/4 C cocoa
1 3/4 C Hottest tap water

Sprinkle the brownie mixture with the brown sugar and 1/4 C cocoa. Pour hot water over the batter. Bake for 40 minutes. Serve warm, topped with ice cream.

Pouring water on top of a perfectly good cake mixture seems weird, and I know because I've been there. Once you pour the water on top, the cake will look disgusting and you'll feel like you've ruined everything. But don't despair! Pop the pan in the oven, and all will be well!
