Strawberries-Hot Fudge Sundae Cake
Yield: 6 Servings
1 cup flour
2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1 cup water
2 pint basket fresh California strawberries, stemmed
Vanilla or coffee ice cream
In mixer bowl combine flour, baking powder, 2 tablespoons of the cocoa powder and 2/3 cup of the granulated sugar. Add milk, butter and vanilla; beat until smooth and well blended. Spread in greased 8-inch square baking pan; set aside. In small saucepan combine the remaining 1/3 cup sugar and the remaining 6 tablespoons cocoa powder, the brown sugar and water. Bring to boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Gently spoon over cake batter. Bake in 350-degree oven about 35 minutes until springy to the touch. While cake is baking, slice strawberries into a bowl and toss with additional sugar to sweeten. To serve, spoon warm cake and its sauce into individual bowls with scoops of ice cream and sweetened strawberries.
