Wacky Mommy Chocolate Volcano Cake
Skinny Cooks

Ingredients:
1 cup flour 3/4 cup sugar 2 tablespoons cocoa 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 cup milk 2 tablespoons oil 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional) 3/4 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup cocoa 1-3/4 cups hot water

Instructions:
Your Wacky Mommy says to use an 8-by-8-inch baking pan or dish and to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Simply mix together the ingredients from the flour through the chopped walnuts and spread them in your baking pan. Mix the brown sugar and cocoa together and sprinkle over the top of the batter. Pour the hot water over the contents in the pan (donít stir) and bake for about 45 minutes. This recipe turns itself over while baking and the liquid becomes the sticky chocolate on the bottom of the cake. It works like the peach cobbler recipe I featured here a long time ago. I think itís best served warm from the oven. You can top it with some whipped cream, or put a dip or two of your favorite ice cream on top or alongside to make a wonderful dessert for your Motherís Day celebration. It will make your day special even if you donít have a wacky mommy. Readers with questions or comments for Dave Kessler may write to him in care of this publication.
