Hot fudge sunday cake! :)

Let me start off by saying this recipe is super easy! So easy you don't even need to use a mixer. If you're a fan of molten chocolate cakes but prefer something less rich, this is the cake for you. Its less chocolatey and more fudgy. If you have kids, they will LOVE this :) its messy, fudgy and delicious.

I was up visiting my grandmother for her birthday and I told her I'd make the dessert of her choice, she pulled an old betty crocker cook book and picked one of her favorites: Hot Fudge Sunday Cake!

Add flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt to a bowl and mix

Once you've mixed all of the dry ingredients transfer them to a 9x9x2 square pan. My grandmother left hers at my house so we used a glass pan.

Next up, add milk, oil, and vanilla. Mix them together with the dry ingredients with a fork until smooth
Combine brown sugar and additional cocoa and sprinkle on top.
pour hot water over the mixture and its ready to bake!
Once you're done baking the cake for 40 minutes, take it out and serve hot. Once take the first scoop of cake you will notice the entire bottom of the cake is actually molten chocolate fudge! yuuuuum!
scoop out some cake, add a scoop of ice cream (we used fudge ice cream bars) and pour the hot fudge over the cake
now its time to eat!

Here's the recipe
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1-3/4 cup hottest tap water
  • ice cream of your choice
