Sometimes Jamon comes home from work and says to me "hey here's a recipe for a cake we had at a work lunch and it was really good, or my coworker said we should try out this recipe, or you are such a hot and sexy babe." Okay, so he doesn't actually say that last one but I know he is thinking it.
Here is a FATastic recipe he brought home a few years ago and we have been making it since then. It is super fast and easy and very good.
2 sticks of butter (yes that's what I said 2)
2 cups of flour
2 cups of sugar
3 heaping tablespoons of cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt
Melt butter in an iron skillet. Mix dry stuff, pour in eggs and butter and vanilla, mix with a fork until all lumps are gone. Pour all in an iron skillet. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. When outside edges are brownie like cake is done and center will be runny like fudge.
You can see what mine looks like when I take it out. The first time I made it I thought it might be raw in the middle. But actually it is very good. It reminds me a little of chocolate pie filling.
