This cake gets rave reviews every time it's made. Definitely not for anyone on a diet! Oooey-gooey, and oh! so good! Best if served warm with vanilla ice cream.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 3/4 cups sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 5 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
- 1 cup strong brewed coffee
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 (14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
- 4 tablespoons milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9 inch springform pan.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and baking powder. Make a well in the center, and pour in melted chocolate, coffee, sour cream, and oil. Mix well, and spread into prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes, then remove from pan.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine caramels and milk. Heat in microwave until melted. Stir until smooth. With a wooden spoon, poke holes into the cake. Pour caramel mixture into holes.
