Our Family's Favorite Dessert!

It came to me the other day - in my lack of blogging moments - that I have never shared with you the favorite dessert here at Korthuis Manor.

My dear friend Audrey made this for us over 20 years ago and I HAD to have the recipe.  It's your basic "go to" dessert.  It has ingredients that one usually always has on hand..............and the best part is (besides it's FABULOUS) is that you don't have to have eggs to make it. 

1 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp butter, melted
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 c. milk
3/4 c. sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp baking cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla

In 2 quart casserole dish melt butter, then add remaining ingredients and stir until well mixed.
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
5 Tbsp. baking cocoa
Mix above ingredients and pour over cake mix in pan.
 Pour 1 1/2 c. boiling water on top - DO NOT STIR!
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Sorry I didn't get a picture before we dove in - I made it for company and simply forgot.  What you end up with is a cake on top with hot fudge on the bottom.  Serve with vanilla ice cream and ENJOY!!
