I followed the recipe EXACTLY! The recipe states "No messy clean-up with this one. Just mix and bake in the same pan." This was NOT the case for me. After combining the flour & cocoa mixture with milk in the pan it was extremely thick and did not spread well in the pan. Added remainder of ingredients including hot water. Recipe does *not* state to stir. Chocolate mixture does not look cohesive in the pan. Carefully placed in oven for 35 minutes. After 10 minutes of baking filling overflowed out of the pan. (Yes, it smelled bad). Decided to continue to bake until done. There was *no* sauce to drizzle when I cut pieces.

This one is a keeper in our house. It's so easy to make, I mixed it all in one pan as the recipe suggests. This is a must have to wow unexpected dinner guests. I didn't find it too sweet at all. The ice cream melded with the ooey gooey richness perfectly. Admittedly I let it sit about five-ten mins longer than the recipe said after it came out of the oven, but the amount of "fudge sauce" on the bottom was just right. Thanks for this easy recipe to address those urgent chocolate cravings.

I have made this recipe for years - since I was in grade school! It is a favorite of my family. To the reviewer who felt it was really messy-you mix the cake then sprinkle the brown sugar/cocoa mixture on top and pour the hot water over and DO NOT STIR! If it looks like it will overflow-just put a pan or a piece of foil underneath. It is absolutely delicious with sweetened whipping cream or ice cream!
