Recipe of the Week

As I was planning out my contributions for Thanksgiving dinner, I came across a new dessert recipe from Betty Crocker. It looked and sounded delicious, so I thought I would try it. Now, this is a risky move. I dont normally take a dish that I haven't ever made before, or even tasted, to a friends house, nor do I make it for company at my own house. I go with tried and true recipes so that I dont: A. embarass myself and B. poison someone with disgusting food. This time I went against my own rule and made a new dish to take to Thanksgiving at a friend's house. Little did I know that they had placed all of their faith in me and hadnt bought or made anything else for dessert! Im so happy I didnt know this going in or I would have been nervous! I mean, what if it hadnt turned out well and then we were left with no dessert for Thanksgiving? That would have been awful. Thankfully, the dessert was a hit and I neednt have worried. So here it is:

Ooey Gooey Chocolate Pumpkin Cake
By: Betty Crocker


1 box yellow cake mix
1 c. canned pure pumpkin
1/2 c. water
1/3 c. vegetable oil
4 eggs
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 jar (12 oz.) hot fudge topping (the recipe called for 2, but I used one)
1 container fluffy white frosting

The recipe also calls for carmel topping and nuts, but trust me, this is a SWEET cake and the carmel topping would probably be overkill. It's tasty without it.
