Fall is just around the corner which means we can finally let go of our diets, right? Ha!  I wish.  But I seriously did as I ate more than I should have.  It’s that good.  For real!

From the moment I took the first bite, childhood memories of my Saturday evenings spent at Sizzler and at the Old Country Buffet (of Delaware) flooded my mind.  All positive memories of course!  I always ordered the buffet instead of anything found on the menu just so I wouldn’t miss the dessert section.  In these restaurants for some odd reason, you couldn’t order this cake on it’s own.  You may think I’m crazy but I’m telling you, it was ALL about the cake!

For me, it was indeed the highlight of dining at buffets.  This ooey-gooey-hot-chocolaty-fudgy-cake was and still is, hard to find anywhere.  Now I can simply make it right in the comfort of my own home and it’s surprisingly easy to make.  So simple with simple ingredients that you most likely already have in your pantry.  So what’s stopping you?

Put on those stretchy pants and get in that kitchen because you’re gonna want to face plant right into this cake!  Trust me, you will.  Just don’t do it when the cake is hot!
