Dessert for Four

Baked Fudge

2 eggs
3/4 cups sugar
2 heaping tablespoons of cocoa
2 tablespoons flour
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat eggs until scrambled, and then beat in sugar until combined.
Add cocoa, flour, melted butter and vanilla. Mix until combined.Pour batter into 4 ramekins, or 1 8-inch square glass pan.
Set dishes or pan into a larger pan, filled halfway with water. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until upper crust is crispy and the rest of the batter is set.
Don't over cook, you want the inside gooey!  Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.  Best warm, or reheated.

So yeah..if you like desserts that include hot fudge, or rich chocolate flavor, then this is your baby!  You can eat this plain, like a baked pudding, or you can be like me and add a little scoop of ice cream.  Because I like a lot of hot fudge.  I cooked these in the little ramekins (they're cheap and mine were pyrex glass little bowls) and they did take about an hour until the consistency inside wasn't entirely gooey, but more fudgey-gooey.  Anyway, this is a quick little recipe to make a special dessert, and only 4 servings at that!  I loved it!
