This dessert is FANTASTIC!! It's super EASY!! And you mix everything in the baking pan so there's almost NO CLEANUP!! I got this recipe from a friend in Nova Scotia. I hope you enjoy it!

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.
