I came across this recipe one day on the Internet and thought it looked good and easy. I also had all the ingredients in my house (not having to go to the store is a BIG plus) so I made it and it is YUMMY!! It's very ooey gooey, which I LOVE!!! It's SUPER easy which makes it even more lovable!! :)
2 sticks butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups self rising flour
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup milk
1 cup sugar
6 TBS cocoa powder
2 cups boiling water
These days with Mar being so healthy, we don't have anything but skim milk (which is fine by me since I'm not a milk drinker anyway) so I learned the last time I baked something and needed milk that you can just use half skim milk and half half and half as a real milk substitute.
Turn your oven on to 350 and put the 2 butter sticks in a 9x13 inch pan. Melt the butter in the oven while it's preheating (that's what I did, anyway, and it worked for me).
While the butter is melting, mix the sugar, flour, vanilla, and milk in one bowl and mix the 1 cup sugar and 6 TBS cocoa (I use HEAPING tablespoons) in another bowl. After this, pour 2 cups of water in a small microwavable bowl (I just used a big coffee cup) in the microwave until it boils (I put it in for 5 mins. but I'm sure it would boil in less time than that).
After that, take the melted butter out of the oven and pour the batter over the butter without stirring. Next, pour the chocolate layer over the batter without stirring. Then, pour the 2 cups boiling water over that....again not stirring. Bake for 35 minutes and VOILA!!
Pure yuminess!! Told ya it was easy! ;)
The gooeyness reminds me of the middle of chocolate molten lava cake from Chili's which is my FAVORITE!!! :)
And I just added this picture to show off the roses my hubby got me last week. :) Doesn't all chocolate look better with roses?!! :)
Happy Day! :)
