This recipes just happens to be low fat, but I don’t ‘think it was intended that way. It’s wonderful hot, served alongside ice cream, but it’s also delicious cold, served right from the fridge.
Recipe from Dinner at the Zoo.
3/4 cup all purpose flour (spoon and leveled)
3/4 cup granulated sugar (I use 1/2 cup)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup plus 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk (I use 1%)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 3/4 cups boiling water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 inch square baking dish or round souffle dish. Combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and 1/3 cup cocoa in medium bowl. Add milk, butter and vanilla, stir until just blended. Spoon the batter into the prepared dish.
Combine brown sugar and remaining 1/4 cup cocoa in small bowl. Sprinkle evenly over batter. Pour boiling water over entire mixture; do not stir.
Bake 35 to 38 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the top layer comes out clean. Cool at least 10 minutes.
