Bite it and write it. That's what I do.

I'm not into smoothie bowls, protein shakes, grain-free desserts or 2-ingredient dinner ideas, but I'm totally into after-school snacks that are super easy.

When I was a kid, I don't remember being into food or cooking. Snacks were either popcorn or dry cereal. As a teenager, the snacks were upgraded to English muffin pizzas or baby carrots and ranch dressing. I wish I knew about Hot Fudge Cake 20 years ago.

It's easy.
Open, pour, mix, bake.

You can experiment with dozens of flavor combinations (white cake mix and orange soda is a favorite; so is spice cake and cream soda, tastes like graham crackers & marshmallows) but this one is my favorite. It reminds me of the hot fudge cake from Shoney's.

Hot Fudge Sundae Cake


Dark chocolate cake mix or devil's food cake mix
12 oz. Cherry cola or cherry Dr. Pepper

Optional toppings: whipped cream, cherries, nuts, chocolate sauce

Combine the cake mix and cola in a large bowl. Use a spoon or whisk to mix ingredients until smooth.

Pour batter into prepared baking dish. Bake cake according to the cake mix package directions. Allow cake to cool before cutting. Add optional toppings. Serve.

I wish that I had known about Hot Fudge Sundae Cake for an after school snack too because this would have been way better than my hot pockets and gold fish! haha

I'm a sucker for easy recipes and this one would get gobbled up in no time flat at my house. I love how versatile it is. I laughed about how choices change with age. I remember going to my best friend's house every day after school and we'd make popcorn and play monopoly. I always thought it was awesome her parents never complained about how buttery the monopoly money was. Ha

Ain't nothing wrong with dry cereal for a snack. Grab a handful and be on your way. I love easy 2 ingredient cakes. It's just so easy!
