Hi to those of you asking about the chocolate cake disasters. I tried this recipe from the archives with no success at all. At first I wondered if it was because I used Splenda instead of regular sugar, but tried it again with the real white stuff and got the same mess at the end.
We tried baking it at 375 instead and this turns out a little better, but the "hot fudge" part seemed as little scorched for my taste. Hope this helps.

This hot fudge cake recipe really satisfies my chocolate craving, too. It is very sweet however. Hot fudge cake 1 cup flour 3/4 c sugar 6 tbls baking cocoa, divided 1/4 tsp salt 1/2 c skim milk 1 tsp vanilla 1 c packed brown sugar 1 3/4 c hot water In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, 2 Tbls cocoa, baking powder and salt. Stir in the milk and vanilla until smooth. Spread in aan ungreased 9-in square baking pan. Combine brown sugar and remaining cocoa; sprinkle over batter. Pour hot water over all; do not stir. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Serve warm. I like to serve it with frozen non-fat vanilla yogurt. Yield: 9 servings. kwlacto lacto
