Here's a wonderful way to top off a great meal—a rich chocolaty cake that's not overly sweet. Mom served it with a scoop of ice cream or cream poured over. I'd always have room for a serving of Hot Fudge Cake.

“My mom used to make a recipe like this when I was younger. I decided to make some healthy changes, and this version is as good, if not better than the original. Being a dietitian, I love to come up with ways to lighten up recipes. I would bake all the time if I could!” Jackie Termont - Elkhart, Indiana

My husband is a real chocolate lover, so I'm always on the lookout for great dessert recipes like this one, which I found years ago. Who can resist the combination of chocolate cake, ice cream and hot fudge sauce? It gets rave reviews whenever I serve it.
Dorothy Floyd sends her daughter's recipe for a wonderful dessert topping, Hot Fudge Sauce. While Dorothy hails from Norton, Ohio, her daughter Vicki Wolfe cooks across the state in Cincinnati. But they're both chocoholics, and Vicki was happy to send this one to her mom. Dorothy writes, “She has many recipes for hot fudge sauce, and gave me this one as she knows I like easy recipes.” We're sure you'll like this one, too.
Charlene likes to top off meals with a time-tested treat. "After Sunday dinners, my grandmother served her special Hot Fudge Sundaes," remembers Charlene. "The thick fudgy sauce comes together in no time and is terrific over ice cream. My whole family looks forward to this delicious dessert."
"I hope you'll enjoy this fudgy cake as much as our family does," says Florence Beer of Houlton, Wisconsin. "It's a snap to make in the microwave. My husband has to watch his cholesterol, but he doesn't feel deprived when I serve this."
