Fudge Bottom Cake

Fudge Bottom Cake

This family recipe for Fudge Bottom Cake dates back to the 80’s, but my younger sister Halle Jo makes it now. It’s her signature dessert, and for good reason! The top layer is a crackly chocolate cake, and underneath is a fudgy chocolate pudding. Serve it with ice cream and a big glass of milk.

Fudge Bottom Cake

Serves 12

From The Supersize Family’s Guide to the Kitchen cookbook

2 cups self-rising flour

1½ cups plus 2 cups sugar, divided

1/3 cup plus ½ cup baking cocoa, divided

1 cup milk

1/3 cup canola oil

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3½ cups very hot tap water

Preheat oven to 325°. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, 1½ cups sugar, and 1/3 cup baking cocoa. Add milk, oil, and vanilla and stir well. Spread into an ungreased 13 x 9 glass cake pan. Combine remaining ½ cup cocoa and 2 cups sugar and sprinkle evenly over batter. Pour hot water over all. Bake for 1 hour or until cake is done and pudding is bubbling through. There will be a chocolate fudge sauce in the bottom of the pan.
