Hot Fudge Cake

Mixing the cake.

The easy part about making this hot fudge cake is that you mix it all up in the same pan you’ll bake it – and serve it. You’ll need the batter first, then the sugar and chocolate layer, and hot water poured on top. Bake and let set for about ten minutes, then serve.

Mixing it up in the pan

When life is busy and hectic or when you have little hands wanting to help bake, this recipe is simple and easy. My sister made a blue zillion of these when they were building a house many, many moons ago when she was pregnant with her third child. If extra men showed up to help, getting this cake in and out of the oven didn’t take a lot of effort on her part. Served with ice cream or a cool whip topping, it’s bound to hit the spot any time you serve it!

The recipe for this hot fudge cake

Make certain you don’t overbake. You want the inside to be gooey and not dried out. When you let it sit those few minutes, it will continue to finish baking and set.
