Recipe by Redneck Epicurean
My pop, well, let's just say he's one of those kinda guys who after the first bite of the main dish says "What's for dessert?" or at 10 pm says, "Mom, how about something sweet?" And the funny thing is, he's not a bit heavy. This cake is really easy, fast, and the "dip" is more of a chocolate sauce, but not like the stuff in a squeeze bottle. This is RICH and DELICIOUS and yes, I can eat it with a spoon. It is meant to be served on a piece of cake, split in two, as soon as it is done. If it cools, it kinda gets crunchy, which as a kid, was alright with me. It does reheat, but looses it's smoothness. Still satisfies me and POP though!
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine, softened
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 2⁄3 cup milk
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons oil
- 2 cups sugar
- 1⁄3 cup hershey's cocoa
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup butter
Directions See How It's Made
- CAKE: Preheat a 9x13 pan. In a bowl, stir together all ingredients. (No need to do the wet ingredients first then dry.).
- Pour into the pan and bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
- DIP: In a med. saucepan, begin to melt the butter. As it melts, add the remaining ingredients, stirring well to combine. Bring to a boil and boil one minute, stirring while it boils. Remove from heat.
- NOTE: It helps to wait until the cake is done to make the dip. The cake will still be warm. Cut that cake slice in half and smother it with the dip and enjoy!
