Mary Connealy's "Best Chocolate Cake on the Planet" Happy Birthday to Me Post!!!


Note From Mary:

I mean it. This is the best chocolate cake on the planet. It's like those volcano cakes you buy at restaurants. Serve hot with scoop of vanilla ice cream. Ruthy note: The art of pushing yourself to word production often needs a hint of decadent food. This recipe is all that and more!
 
Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

Mix together in bowl:
1 C. flour
¾ C. sugar
2 T. cocoa
2 t. baking powder
¼ t. salt


Add:
½ C. milk
2 T. butter (melted)

Pour into ungreased 9 x 9 cake pan. Stir together:
1 C. brown sugar
¼ C. cocoa

Sprinkle that over batter.
Pour over batter:
1 ¾ C. hot water

(Yes it looks awful, but trust me. Pour the water on.)

Bake at 3500 for 45 minutes. Cake on top is done, sauce in bottom isn’t. Its hard to tell if its done. It has to be eaten hot, even microwaved isn’t as good. Serve with ice cream.

  3. Happy Birthday Mary!!! I've always wanted to know how they made those cakes and it looks easy peasy! Plus I have all the ingredients -- including vanilla ice cream. This makes it very tempting to whip up when I get home from work but I think I'd need to invite a bunch of friends over to do it justice which would mess with my Speedbo count. :-( I may have to wait for April...or Easter! That's closer.

  4. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARY!!!!!!!! I'm doing a happy song and dance in honor of you today. It's worth embarrassing myself for your entertainment. :)

    This sounds like an amazing cake!! And since there are no eggs, I don't have to worry about Salmonella in the gooey bottom part! LOL

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARY! WOO HOO!

    Do you have any special plans? Please don't tell me your cowboy is claiming a litter of kittens is your present!

    I was reading through the recipe, thinking "this might be the perfect dessert to take to Bible study tonight", and then I got to this part: "It has to be eaten hot, even microwaved isn’t as good."

    Too bad. I'll just have to eat it before we go!

    1. LOL, you could bake it at the location, think of it, filling the air with the scent of chocolate, whipping it out of the oven VOILA! Jan the Genius!
      If you mixed it all up but waited to pour the water over it at the location it would travel nicely.

    Hey, how's that Kryptonite recipe coming along?????? :)

    Mary, I love your facebook postings of calves, cats and life on the ranch. They make me smile every time I see them. God bless you and Ivan in all you do.... And I mean that sincerely. (Which is a rarity around here....) :)
