Baked fudge dessert

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Sifted cake flour
2 teaspoons Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
½ cup White sugar
3 tablespoons Cocoa
½ cup Chopped nuts
½ cup Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 tablespoons Melted shortening --SAUCE----
4 tablespoons Cocoa
½ cup Brown sugar
1¾ cup Hot water
1 teaspoon Grated orange rind

Sift the first five ingredients together. Add the nuts. Make a well in the centre and add milk, vanilla and melted shortening. Stir lightly and pour batter into a greased casserole. SAUCE: Measure cocoa, brown sugar, hot water and orange rind into a bowl and beat well. Pour over batter. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes at 350F. As this dessert bakes, the batter rises through the rich chocolate sauce.

Serve it hot with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Source: Chatelaine Golden Anniversary ch.
