Hot Fudge Sundae Cake
Source: A Grandmother’s Legacy: Amish & Mennonite Cooking
1 c flour
¾ c sugar
2 T cocoa
2 t baking powder
¼ t salt
½ c milk or dairy-free substitute
2 T vegetable oil
1 c chopped nuts, optional
1 c brown sugar
¼ c cocoa
1 ¾ c hot water
Ice cream or dairy-free substitute
Preheat oven to 350o. Mix first five ingredients in an ungreased 9x13” pan. Mix milk and oil. Add to mixture in the pan, stirring with a fork until smooth. Stir in nuts. Spread evenly in pan. Mix brown sugar and cocoa together and sprinkle over top. Pour hot water gently over batter. Bake 40 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream and spoon “topping” left in pan over ice cream.
Dairy-free notes: Because this cake only has ½ c of milk, I think it could easily be made dairy-free and topped with dairy-free ice cream. I am labeling it as dairy-free, even though I have not tried it. Please let me know how it turns out.
