Hot Fudge Sundae

I am a fan of hot fudge sundaes. This is a recipe that sounds so good to me, so I am going to make it this week. It is a hot fudge sundae cake recipe and it is made in a slow cooker. I know this is something my grand kids would appreciate. Since I live 1500 miles from them, I emailed this recipe to my daughter.


1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 1/2 cup hot water


Spray inside of 2 to 3 1/2-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.

Mix flour, sugar, 2 tablespoons cocoa, the baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in milk, oil and vanilla until smooth. Stir in nuts. Spread batter evenly in the slow cooker.

Mix brown sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa in a small bowl. Stir in hot water until smooth. Pour evenly over the batter in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Turn off the slow cooker. Let cake stand uncovered 30 to 40 minutes to cool slightly before serving.

Spoon warm cake into dessert dishes. Spoon sauce over top.

SIX Servings.

If you ever make it to Mackinaw Island in Michigan, the Grand Hotel is reknowned there for its hot fudge. I had a hot fudge sundae there once and there's no comparison.

Hey I'm copying/pasting what I wrote in answer to Brian's question about my music stuff:

I play with a band called Thom Jayne and the Nomads - a very humble site at - I'm the bass player. Also I play with a thus-far un-named group that does smooth jazz, a little of this and that. I teach music out of my home - piano, bass, guitar - and I'm the accompanist for our school district. So, I'm a "working musician" - poor but happy!

That looks so wickedly, sinfully delicious. Which is always the best kind of delicious, in my humble opinion. ;) I need to walk away from the computer now because the urge to lick the screen is becoming overpowering!!
