I LOVE Hot Fudge Cakes! It’s basically like a brownie with warm, gooey hot fudge oozing out of it. It’s a delicious mess.
Zack shares my love for them, so I decided to give making one a try. When it is still in the pan, it looks like regular brownies. Then you cut into it and realize the whole underneath part is hot fudge.
I put a scoop of ice cream on top of Zack’s as you can see above, but I just ate mine place (thanks, lactose intolerance!). Seriously, though, it was AMAZING plain.
It says nine servings, but good luck getting 9 servings out of it! I think Zack and I ate the whole thing in about 2 days. Oink.
