  1. I have made this recipe for years - since I was in grade school! It is a favorite of my family. To the reviewer who felt it was really messy-you mix the cake then sprinkle the brown sugar/cocoa mixture on top and pour the hot water over and DO NOT STIR! If it looks like - Read more ...
  2. Very good! My family recipe differs a bit. With only 3/4 cup flour 1/3 cup of brown sugar 1 and 1/4 cup of hot water and adding 1/4 cup of semisweet or dark chocolate chips to the topping!
  3. Turned out well I didn't have brown sugar so tried it with white it is NOT a change I recommend. I didn't give it 5stars because I needed to add more milk to make the cake batter but definitely a recipe worth repeating!

  7. Delicious!! I followed the recipe as is except I used an 8 inch square pan. Served warm with vanilla icecream. Thank you!
  8. Easy and simple recipe to put together and execute. I didn't give it five stars because the cake had a bit of a baking powder after taste. Defintitely serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream to cut the seetness.
  9. I used soy milk and almonds with good results. However I was surprised by how much fudge sauce there was at the bottom! The cake itself was pretty good chocolate-y and without being too sweet but with the fudge sauce on top of it? It became overpoweringly sweet for my tastes. Ice-cream or sorbet on - Read more ...
