Hot fudge sundae cake (Rx for colds)

The end of the hurricane has brought the most gorgeous weather and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying it. Except for today – I’m apparently not immune to the common cold. I was sitting in bed wishing for a remedy when it hit me that hot fudge might be completely curative (at least in the psychological sense).

I modified this recipe.


  • 1 cup all purpuose flour
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp + ¼cup cocoa, divided
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 & ¾ cup hot brewed coffee

Combine flour, granulated sugar, 2 tbsp cocoa, baking powder, salt, milk, oil and vanilla in a bowl. Spread this sticky batter over a square pan (I used my glass 8×8). Mix the brown sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa and carefully layer on top of the batter. Finally, pour the hot coffee on top of it all! Bake for 35 minutes at 350*F!
