Tender moist chocolate cake with chocolate sauce drizzled on the top – oh yeah, this is dessert at its best! If you’re a chocolate lover (or even if you’re not), you will love this delectable cake. Because it creates its own sauce while it bakes makes it easy to make – no need for frosting!
As with all recipes, the components you use are important. Use a good brand of unsweetened cocoa powder; use real butter and real vanilla. When the ingredients are the best quality, the outcome is always superior.
This is a perfect dessert – it’s easy, it makes its own sauce, and it’s chocolate! It’s a bit like a brownie in chocolate sauce. For a perfect ending to a wonderful meal, there is nothing better than Hot Fudge Cake.
Hot Fudge Cake Recipe
Ingredients for Hot Fudge Cake:
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- ¾ cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
- ½ cup milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 cup nuts (optional)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
- 1 ¾ cups hot water
Directions for making Hot Fudge Cake:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. You will need an ungreased 9-inch square pan.
In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, white sugar, and 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa.
Whisk in the milk, vanilla, and melted butter just until well-incorporated. Add nuts (if using).
Spread the batter into a 9” square pan (ungreased). Sprinkle evenly over the batter 1 cup brown sugar and 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa. Pour evenly over everything but do not stir 1 ¾ cups hot water.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until the middle is set. Let it cool a little prior to serving. It is great whether served alone or with ice cream or whipped cream.
