I made this for a family get together last night, and I kid you not when I took it out of the oven, there was a tough moment where I wondered if perhaps I should just give them the ice cream, so as not to have to share. My solution is that I will be making it again tonight.
When something is both butt widening, and really, really good, I call it momma crack. I know that's a questionable thing to say, and I obviously don't think crack is a joke, whether you're talking about the drug or the effect of low waisted jeans. I think my point is that if you wear low waisted jeans, you shouldn't eat this. Or use crack.
Chocolate Self Saucing Chocolate Brownie Cake thing. With Chocolate;
6 TBSP butter
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt (kosher is fine, I promise)
1 3/4 cup sugar, separated
7 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder, separated
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups water
Heat the oven to 350, and put the 1 1/2 cups water on to boil.
Melt the butter in a 8x8 baking dish. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, 3/4 cup of the sugar, and 3 TBSP of cocoa in a medium bowl, and then stir in the milk and vanilla. Stir until combined, this will be a fairly thick mixture. Spoon it over the melted butter (don't get too excited about getting it even, it doesn't spread easily and doesn't seem to matter).
In a clean bowl, combine the remaining 1 cup of sugar and 4 TBSP of cocoa. Sprinkle it over the prepared batter. Finally, pour the boiling water over the whole mess, slowly.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Serve with chocolate ice cream for the true momma crack experience, or also great with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
