I've been making Betty Crocker's hot fudge sundae cake for as long as I've been cooking. It is so easy for a beginning chef, and the results are delicious and impressive. I had a craving for a treat tonight, and decided it was time to blow the dust off this recipe and try it again, and thought I'd share with you few readers out there.
