Hot Fudge Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by littlevanillabeans

This recipe has been in my family forever. I have no memory of where it came from. It has a most sinful taste and is and so hard to resist. It creates it's own fudge sauce when baking.

I made this recipe, this weekend, for the PAC . It was quite good but seemed to be missing something...perhaps a little vanilla in the hot water that is poured over it, vor the sauce??
