Hot Fudge Cake

Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2/3 cup Dutch-processed cocoa
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 1/3 cup semi sweet chocolate, chopped or morsels
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup whole milk (I used 2%)
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg yolk

Cooking Directions

  1. *Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease 8-inch square baking dish. Stir coffee into water and set aside to dissolve. Combine 1/3 cup cocoa, brown sugar, and 1/3 cup granulated sugar in small bowl, breaking up large clumps with fingers: set aside.
  2. Melt butter, remaining 1/3 cup cocoa, and chocolate in small heatproof bowl set over saucepan filled with 1 inch of barely simmering water; whisk until smooth and set aside to cool slightly. Whisk flour and baking powder in small bowl to combine; set aside. Whisk remaining 2/3 cup granulated sugar, milk, vanilla, and salt in medium bowl until combined; whisk in egg yolk. Add chocolate mixture and whisk to combine. Add flour mixture and whisk until batter is evenly moistened.
  3. Pour batter into prepared baking dish and spread to sides and corners. Sprinkle cocoa-sugar mixture evenly over batter (cocoa mixture should cover entire surface of batter); pour coffee mixture gently over cocoa mixture. Bake cake until puffed and bubbling and just beginning to pull away from sides of baking dish, about 45 minutes. (Do not over bake.) Let cake cool in dish on wire rack for about 25 minutes before serving.

My mother's roast. She uses a 4" thick round steak and it is absolutely amazing. The recipe belonged to my grandmother as well.

We have two! Our Italian Sub Soup and Oyster Stuffing. I only make the stuffing once a year at Thanksgiving and the kids still fight over it - even though the older two are grown and out of the house!

Two of my Mom's recipes are always requested by my son and daughter. One is her country fried steak and the other is her spaghetti that has pork, pepperoni and meatballs and a fantastic sauce that is cooked most of the day. Her birthday was December 29 so I started a tradition of preparing it for dinner that night when we are all gathered for Christmas.

7Up Cake and Roast Pork and Arroz con Gandules (rice and pigeon peas)

Thanks for the cake recipe - we had a recipe that was made in the microwave, but since I don't use a microwave anymore this is great. I'm gonna make it this weekend.
