Hot Fudge Walnut Cake - recipe with picture!

I made this the other night for a cookout we went to. Turned out really good and was very tasty! Added bonus was it wasn't all that complicated IMPORTANT: If you wanna try this recipe, read through it first. It's easy to screw up otherwise (from someone who knows about screwing up a recipe  ) ...Hot Fudge Walnut Cake

3/4 cups granulated sugar 

1 cup all-purpose flour 

3 TBSP baking cocoa 

2 tsp baking powder 

¼ tsp. salt 

½ cup milk 

⅓ cup butter, melted 

1½ tsp. vanilla extract 

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 c chopped walnuts

½ cup granulated sugar ½ cup packed light brown sugar4 TBSP baking cocoa1¼ cups hot water Cool Whip 

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. 

  2. In bowl, stir together ¾ cup granulated sugar, flour, 3 tbsp cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk, butter, and vanilla; beat until smooth. 

  3. Stir in chocolate chips. You can add the walnuts here OR use them as a garnish with the Cool Whip at the end. Pour batter into 8 or 9-inch square baking pan. 4. Stir together remaining ½ cup granulated sugar, brown sugar and remaining 4 tbsp cocoa; sprinkle mixture evenly over batter. Pour hot water over top; do not stir. 

  4. Bake 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes. Spoon into dessert dishes, spooning sauce from bottom of pan over top. 

  5. Garnish with cool whip and walnuts (if not in the batter).Unfortunately I didn't get a picture before the bbq-ers got to it...
