Hot Fudge Cake

As summer approaches and the weather gets nicer we have been busy making homemade ice cream on Sunday afternoons. It’s something Clayton and I enjoy doing and well it’s delicious so why wouldn’t we! But to finish off the ice cream Clayton loves one of my family favorite recipes of Hot Fudge Cake! Its a breeze to make and even Clayton himself can make it! Enjoy this Hot Fudge Cake that I believe was originally a Hershey’s recipe.
