What a delight to have met Laura.  We really do live in a small world.  My friend Cindy and myself went to Apple Days in Cornish, Maine.  Beautiful day, just walking around and Laura appears, So the story goes, Cindy knows her husband, and my husband worked with hers a few years back.  We chatted and exchanged e-mails and Laura sent me this wonderful chocolate dessert recipe.  Had to try it, being obsessed with baking, So I present to you Laura's Hot Fudge Sundae Cake.  Its easy to make, just follow the directions, but a warning!!!  Place your glass baking dish on a rimmed lined baking sheet....I had a little messy overflow....Not fun to clean up. But sure was fun to eat.  Makes a small cake, chocolate  with a chocolate pudding all in one, serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream but don't forget the cherry.  What is a sundae without a cherry on top................happy baking, Andi
