Today is my birthday, so I decided to bake me a cake, one of my favorites.
Hot Fudge Sunday Cake
1 c flour
2 Tbl. cocoa
1/4 t. salt
2 Tbl. vegetable oil
3/4 c. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 c. milk
1 t. vanilla
Mix well and pour into a buttered 9x9 pan.
Sprinkle 1 c. brown sugar and 1/4 c. cocoa on top of batter.
Pour 1 1/3 c. very hot water over batter. This will make the sauce.
Bake 35-40 minutes in a 350 degree oven until top is dry.
Here is what it looks like just out of the oven...
The hot fudge settles to the bottom.
Serve warm with vanilla bean ice cream. Spoon sauce from bottom of pan over cake and ice cream.
This cake is a hit around my house. My mother has been serving it ever since I was a little girl. It wasn't until recently that I figured out why. It's so simple, uses no eggs and everything is basic pantry ingredients.
