Hot Fudge Cake is delicious by itself. But what could be more tempting than adding fresh red strawberries and cold vanilla icecream?
This is a special treat not only for kids, but also for almost any adult I know. This includes me, off course :-)
The Hot Fudge Cake is a lot easierto prepare than it seems at first glance. Just give it a try and you'll be surprised.
- 1 cup flour
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2 pint basket fresh strawberries, stemmed
- Vanilla or coffee ice cream
In mixer bowl combine flour, baking powder, 2 tablespoons of the cocoa powder and 2/3 cup of the granulated sugar.
Add milk, butter and vanilla; beat until smooth and well blended. Spread in greased 8-inch square baking pan; set aside. In small saucepan combine the remaining 1/3 cup sugar and the remaining 6 tablespoons cocoa powder, the brown sugar and water.
Bring to boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Gently spoon over cake batter.
Bake in 350-degree oven about 35 minutes until springy to the touch. While cake is baking, slice strawberries into a bowl and toss with additional sugar to sweeten.
To serve, spoon hot fudge cake and sauce into dessert bowls with scoops of ice cream and sweetened strawberries.
