This is one I've been making for a long time. Probably since I was about 13. It was one of my very favorite desserts as a kid. And when I taste it now, it brings me right back.

Hot Fudge Sundae Cake
2 c. sifted flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. sugar
4 Tbsp. cocoa
1 c. milk
4 Tbsp. melted butter
Mix above ingredients well with mixer. Pour into 9x13 baking dish. In separate bowl combine 2 c. brown sugar 3 Tbsp. cocoa. Sprinkle over batter. Pour 3 1/2 c hot water over top and bake 45 min. @350 degrees.

Serve with vanilla ice cream.

First mix up the batter and pour batter into a 9 x 13 baking dish.

Mix together brown sugar & cocoa and sprinkle on top of batter.

Pour hot water over top.

It comes out looking somewhat like a regular pan of brownies.

But once you cut into it, the hot fudge pudding stuff comes oozing out. (See it there in the bottom of the pan?) The top is crunchy and cake like, the middle sort of dumpling like, and the bottom is pure liquid gold. (Well liquid chocolate, but....)

It's not as sweet as you would think it might be and in my opinion MUST be served hot, over vanilla ice cream.

(Makes a great breakfast too. But don't let you thighs know.)

What a yummy BLOG. I will be back. I am new to blogging, but loving it.

Stop by my blog for a visit.

I am giving away my first EVER BLOG PRIZE.

I have a gift basket business and it is the most requested gift over the last 15 years. From the comments I have already received, appears to be something a little different and something anyone could use.

I have been so touched by the comments that I have decided to give 2 boxes . They will be the $100 deluxe size. I really do want to bless people!!! I want my blog to encourage others.

I have decided that giving is life at its BEST. The drawing will be Saturday!

We call it pudding cake and I LOVE it! I always double the amount of sauce. And though there is a lot of sugar involved, it's a relatively healthy cake because there's not much butter involved. SO eat that extra piece for breakfast :)
