CAN YOU BELIEVE IT???? It's been more than a month since I've featured chocolate here at the Café.
Shame on me! Take heart—this week’s recipe is a simple, gooey, divine treat that whips up in seconds and is the perfect finish to just about anything - breakfast, an afternoon nap, a candlelight dinner. You name it, this recipe works! The hardest part is waiting for it to bake.
From my friend, Cheryl—a native Texan and true Southerner. She is charming, oh-so-cute, and a fabulous cook. A girl’s luncheon or evening at her house is never complete without dessert. This is one of my favorites.
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups sugar
1 cup melted butter (the real stuff)
½ cup flour (yes, that all the flour you need)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
½ cup walnuts (pecans work fine too)
2 teaspoons vanilla
Combine all ingredients and pour into a 9-inch square pan. Set into a larger pan of hot water, about one inch deep. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
Serve with vanilla ice cream.
Note: This looks like a brownie, but the hot water keeps it soft and fudgy in the center.
Ahhhh. Chocolate! The perfect end to one of your Labor Day Weekend dinners with friends and family. Enjoy.
