Chocolate Stuff

Chocolate Stuff is the signature recipe from the Sweet Potato Queens’ Big-Ass Cookbook and Financial Planner, and it is just the thing when you’ve got a bad case of the Mondays, if you catch my drift.

The key to this recipe is cooking it in a water bath so it comes out molten and gooey. If you just bake it, it comes out like a mediocre brownie and is hardly worth your time.

Ingredients
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 stick butter
2 heaping tablespoons Hershey’s cocoa powder
1 tablespoon vanilla
nuts (optional)

Cooking Directions
In a medium-size mixing bowl, beat together eggs, sugar and flour until smooth. Melt the butter with the cocoa in a separate dish or pan (I use a glass measuring cup in the microwave). Combine all ingredients and add vanilla. Add nuts if you want. Pour mixture into a loaf pan, then set the loaf pan in a larger pan of water and cook at 300 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes.

Okay, so Chocolate Stuff is not Death by Chocolate cake, but it’s a quick, cheap, sure-fire way to quell your chocolate cravings at least long enough to get you through to Tuesday.

Enjoy!

One thought on “Chocolate Stuff

  1. some think pudding, some think cake. all i know is that i saw chocolate and butter and said sounds good to me. do NOT let it bake too long. you do not want a cake-like texture. gooey is best. i have actually made multiple batches, turned the stuff out into 2-3 bowls, gave everyone spoons and told them to help themselves. this is a killer recipe, also good with a little ice cream on the side or whipped cream.
    love the SPQ books.
