Hot Fudge Cake


When my computer crashed (again) a couple months ago, my dear brother recovered all my files (again) for me. He probably keeps that equipment just for me.

Hidden away in my Documents was a file dated somewhere in 2009, simply named "recipes." Not sure what to expect there, I opened it up to find thirty-two pages of recipes.

Yes.

Thirty-two pages.

Holy Cow!

Apparently one day a few summers ago, I had gone on some type of recipe copying rampage.

This Hot Fudge Cake was one of them. Like nearly all of the recipes in the file, it did not come with the source. A quick Google turned up several amazing new desserts that I simply must try, but I couldn't find anything that looked like this one.



Bake a yellow cake in a 9 x 13 pan. It can be your favorite from-scratch recipe or from a mix. Who am I to judge?

This is a spin on the poke cake, so use the handle of a wooden spoon to poke holes into the cake about every inch or so.
In a saucepan, melt a can of sweetened condensed milk with a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Pour this over the yellow cake. Spread it out and let it cool down a bit.
Spread a container of Cool-Whip over the top.
Doesn't that look incredible?

It is.
I'm going to go make it again.

I do keep special adapters around for you. About every 3 years I get the phone call. ;-) This looks good I am going to try it!
