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.

Mother would make this rich, fudgy dessert more than any other because it was my father's favorite. My husband, two children and I also love to eat the cake warm with ice cream. I work at our local post office and like helping at our kids' school.
"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."
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 created this recipe one hot summer night when I went to the kitchen to make four sundaes and didn't have quite enough hot fudge sauce. So I decided to use the raspberry sauce I'd made for that morning's waffles. After the first spoonful, I knew I'd created the perfect sundae!
