As promised, here is the update to my previous review; I used a deeper baking tin as I think that may have been where disaster befell by last attempt,,,and I still have a perfectly clean oven...
But, more importantly, the taste,,,I replaced the flour with my gluten free flour mix #438139 and used light evaporated milk which really added to the fudginess of the fudge. My husband suggested a couple of drops of brandy or rum instead of vanilla,,,but I think that says more about him than the flavour of the cake. I served it hot with Clotted cream ice cream and it was not only AWESOME but WICKEDLY DIVINE. Thank you Fran for posting.

This was delicious and easy. I made two "versions" - one with sugar and one with Splenda. The splenda version did not work as well - not as much fudgy sauce - but tasted great. The sugar version was super. I passed the recipe on to my daughter in college - this one-dish dessert is perfect for her dorm/apartment. Next time I'm going to see if it would work in the microwave....
