It's a treat to get something in the mail from people you love. Yesterday it was a sweet thank-you from my grandson, Tyler and a recipe from Maureen, my friend in Metropolis Illinois.
In case you want to bake on this 100 degree day, here's the recipe that she makes for her grandson and his boss and co-workers. She doesn't have a computer but she really needs to be warned that she is going to have men following her all over town if she keeps baking for them. (They may be already doing that.)
Hot Fudge Pudding Cake
1 cup flour 1/2 cup milk
2 tsp. baking powder 1 cup brown sugar
1/4 teas. salt 1/4 cup cocoa
3/4 cup sugar 1 and 3/4 cup hot water
2 Tbsp. melted butter 2 Tbsp. cocoa
Mix and sift flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and 2 T. cocoa. Blend in butter and milk. spread batter in 9 x 9 pan. Mix brown sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa and sprinkle over batter. Carefully pour hot water over batter. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Serve warm. Makes 9 servings (what a joke).
I (Maureen) double it and bake 1 hour. Hope you like it. It's not pretty. I never could make a pretty cake. I buy them!
