Well, since I posted the recipe for the heart stopping microwave cake, I thought I would take a moment and post the perfect topping to bring the cholesterol level of the cake up to FDA standards. Here is a delicious Hot Fudge Sauce.
Hot Fudge Sauce
1 Cup Cocoa Powder
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 Cup boiling water
1 tsp vanilla
4 TB butter
In a heavy saucepan mix cocoa, sugar and salt. Gradually stir in water; stir over medium heat about 8 minutes or until smooth, shiny and slightly thickened. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Next, add butter and stir over low heat until smooth (about 4 minutes). Serve warm (when it is cooled it is a very thick and rich topping, as well).
I hope this adds just the touch that was missing from the microwave cake. Enjoy!
