I've been meaning to post this for a while now. I've made it twice in the past two weeks for work and for company that have come over to eat. This recipe is quickly becoming one of our new favorites, and is in the ranking to become a holiday tradition at our house. It's easy to see why though. This is so rich and moist, who wouldn't want this at their Thanksgiving spread.
As always, start with a stick of butter... Melt it. Love it. Embrace it. Butter gets a bad wrap...but man it's good.
Then we get some cocoa...
...and mix it with sugar and flour...
add milk, and pour mixture over the melted butter. Here's the interesting part. You boil two cups of water, and then pour it over the melted butter and batter, and then bake it! And what you get it this...
Don't forget the Whipped Cream! I hope you like it!
Here's the Recipe:
1 stick of butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup self rising flour
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 350*. Melt butter in an 8 x 8 baking dish. Remove the baking dish from the oven and set it aside. Then combine 3/4 cup of sugar, the flour and 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder. Add the milk and vanilla extract, and pour mixture over melted butter. Then, boil two cups of water, and pour on top of the mixture and melted butter. Bake for about 50 minutes to an hour, and don't forget the whipped cream!
