Another Chocoholic Recipe (Low fat, too!)

I dedicate this one to my heroes: Heather and Sharon.
Hot Fudge Monday (a brownie in its own chocolate syrup and is ridiculously easy to make)
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unpacked brown sugar
1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup soy milk (recipe calls for skim but I substituted and it worked just fine)
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup unpacked brown sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 3/4 cups boiling water.
Preheat oven to 350. Combine cake's dry ingredients together in a medium bowl and set aside. In a small bowl, mix milk and oil. Add to cake dry ingredients and stir until well blended. Pour batter in the bottom of an ungreased 8X8 baking pan. Spread evenly.
In a small bowl, mix together sauces' sugar and cocoa. Sprinkle mixture over batter. Pour boiling water over top. DO NOT STIR! Bake 40 - 45 minutes, until top of cake feels dry to touch. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Cut into 6 pieces. Spoon sauce from bottom of pan over cake.

FYI - this recipe doubles easily for a crowd and serves more than it says. The 6 servings are VERY big pieces. For the doubled recipe, use a 9X13 pan and cook a wee bit longer - just make sure the cake is done. For NON IBSers, frozen yogurt/ice cream goes great with this. Poor sods. I tell myself it takes away room from the chocolate sauce.
