Baked Fudge~ The Best Chocolate Dessert Ever

This will be a hit everytime you serve it.  I've been making this for years and it's a homerun, every single time.    It is so darn good!  I am eating leftovers as I type this out and I think we may need another batch at my house tonight.  It's like a mix of hot fudge sauce, super gooey, rich chocolate cake, and brownie batter...which I admit I like better than brownies.  Baked Fudge is hard to describe really, other than to say that just one serving is usually not enough!  
 ...And, it is super easy to make...just be sure to do the IMPORTANT step!

Baked Fudge

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup flower
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup chopped nuts (optional...I use walnuts)
2 tsp vanilla

 Ok, I used pecans this time, took a vote here and decided we prefer the walnuts...just our opinion.

Cream eggs and sugar
Add melted butter. Blend.
Add cocoa and four.  Blend.
Stir in nuts and vanilla.
Pour into greased 9 x 9 pan.  IMPORTANT:  Place pan in another pan with about an inch of water inside.

Let kids (my Kalyn on the right and her friend Courtney on the left) lick the bowl and apply to face as shown below.
Bake at 325 for about 45 minutes until a crust forms on top and it's soft and gooey inside. 
DEVOUR while warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

  Refrigerate leftovers, if you have any, and then heat in the microwave when you're ready for round two.

  1. Welllll, there goes that 12# I lost last month!
    Can't pass up anything chocolate for sure.

    Love the girls ... cute!

    TY for sharing ...

    Have a great weekend.
    TTFN ~

  2. Baked fudge, new one on me, but anything with Chocolate hubby will love, maybe a St.Valentine's treat! Thanks for posting.

  3. Yum sounds like my kind of treat!!
    just wondering tho something in the directions doesn't sound right..
    Cream butter and sugar then add melted butter. Am I missing something here?

  4. Oh I just love these ooey, gooey, (fingers crossed-no fat, diet) desserts-heaven:@)

  5. Debbie, I just sent you an email...I'm the one missing something, and that would be my mind, most of the time. I've fixed this already and it should read cream the eggs and sugar now. Thank you for pointing this out to me!


  6. Ginny,

    I will say that many times when I make this and offer 'Baked Fudge' to my guests that they tell me they've never heard of it. So, you're not the only one this is new to...and it is a wonderful Valentines dessert.



  7. Sounds sooooo good, but when I read it has 2 cups of sugar in it, I gained weight just thinking about it. It sounds wonderful and I will have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

  8. This looks amazing! I am SO trying this, thanks!

  9. That sounds delicious and decadent. That's a keeper.

  10. Nancy, That sounds and looks absolutely delicious! Mmmmmm! Can I run over and have some? Love your photos, too. Nicely done!
    Blessings, Beth

  11. Yowee! I don't know what to say LOL! I'll start with YUM and end with YUM!
    But...I scored a transferware vase today that I can't find online...can I show it soon and ask you about it?

  12. OH WOW!!! what a YUMMY!!! treat and with Ice Cream even BETTER!!! CHOCOLATE is one of my downfalls and anything made with chocolate is a must try.

  13. I would be eating the leftovers while I was writing this too. This sounds delicious, kind of a hot lava cake on a large scale. It definitely has to have the vanilla ice cream to go with it too. Yum! Good thing I never made any resolutions!

  14. I know for a fact, I would use pecans as you did...but oooooooooooo, what a treat for us!!! I'm glad I stopped by before it was all gone. Thanks for the yummies.

    Come on over to my show n tell [link]

    Happy Weekend!!

English Cottage Living Room - Before, Partly After & Still a Work in Progress

I am sorry for not posting more pictures of the progress we've made settling into this new (to us) home.   It seems life rushes by so fast and that at times, doing little things, even those that I love and enjoy, often get pushed aside and onto the back shelf of my mind where I tell myself, "I'll get to this later".  Well, it is later and though I don't have as much to share with you as I'd like, I'm going to at least share my favorite spot in our living room.  I promise to show the rest of the room soon but for now the opposite half of the living room has been occupied by my daughters boyfriend who has been staying with us for the past 7 or so weeks until his apartment is ready for him to move into, and so the couch is usually made up for him to sleep on!   Here is a photo of the current living room just as we found it, a small room just off the entry of the house with a nice marble and wood fireplace surround, hard wood floors, beautiful crown mouldi

The History of Johnson Brothers and The Friendly Village Tablescape

Last week, Shawn and I popped into a couple of estate sales and I picked up over 100 pieces of Johnson Brother's The Friendly Village .  I think I may have to hang on to 12 of the dinner plates and use them this year at Thanksgiving but the rest of them, including this 48 piece service for 8, will be you know where. I don't know about you all, but I have had enough of Summer and I am down right ready for the cooler temperatures of Autumn.  I've been doing a lot of rearranging around the house….I'm in one of those zones where I've got a zillion projects going on, even if half of them are just in my mind that I'm contemplating!   We've also been moving kids out and around.  Three of them are out and the three still at home are moving or rearranging their rooms around.    Since I am yearning for Fall, haven't posted any tablescapes in a while and just got these Friendly Village pieces I decided to set the table with them.      Oh great, I

More Traditional Red White & Blue Rooms with Transferware

Decorating with Brown Transferware & $100 GIVEAWAY

Brown was introduced as a transferware color around 1829-30 and is the least expensive of colors to make. Therefore it is fairly common, so far as transferware goes, to find.  It is also one of the most collected colors and it is probably the most versatile of colors in my opinion.  Brown is neutral and looks good with any color scheme from pastels to rich jewel tones, but it is with the ushering in of Autumn that I see it popping up in home decor and vignettes the most.  Though, most of these rooms and vignettes are decorated with brown pieces year round, it just seems the perfect time to share them.  I may have to do another post because there are so, so many more equally beautiful spaces that have incorporated the use of displaying brown transferware  and I can't fit them all here. So, check these lovelies out and then stick around for the giveaway at the bottom of the post. This vignette just stole my heart the first time I saw it.  So many of us have vintage luggage

My English Country Mom Cave

Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch is hosting a Home Goods Mom Cave contest with four lucky winners.  Come on in to my little niche I've carved out of my house.  This is where I work, create, relax, read and chat with friends and family. This is one of my favorite spots in the house to read about one of my favorite subjects...English transferware or poetry, and drink tea.  I often start and end my day right here. Next to the chair is an antique dumbwaiter which holds some decorative items as well as lots of poetry books.  This is the view of the room from the wing back chair.  This cozy room serves as a small living room, although it's not uncommon to have 8 or 9 of the girls in here during family gatherings.  It's usually where we all wind up to have coffee and visit. . On either side of the sofa I display some of my vintage Canine figurines on Spode meat drainers. Above the sofa are some of my favorite paintings.  The one directly over the sofa my Mom pain

The Aesthetic Movement and Transferware

What is the Aesthetic Movement? The Aesthetic Movement refers to a period of time in the late 19 th century (1870-1900) which was a backlash to the formal Victorian years.  Artists and writers of the Aesthetic movement period maintained the belief that art should provide refined sensuous pleasure, rather than convey moral or sentimental messages.  They believed that art did not have any didactic purpose; it need only be beautiful.  Japanese art had a great influence on Aestheticism. Aesthetic interiors were often decorated with Japanese prints, screens, fans and other objects. An appreciation of the art of Japan is seen in the work of many Aesthetic artists and designers such as James McNeill Whistler and E.W. Godwin. photo credit Country Living The Aesthetes developed the cult of beauty, which they considered the basic factor in art. They ascertained that life should copy art and considered nature as crude and lacking in design

Decorating with Blue Transferware and a GIVEAWAY!

   If you haven't already been over to Enchanted Home , you'll want to go over after you finish this post because the wonderful Tina, who authors the incredibly gorgeous blog,  has a great post up about decorating with dishes plus she's hosting a giveaway to my online shop, English Transferware !  Details at the end of the post! I know Tina loves blue and white (just look at her header and you'll know!) and has a collection of her own. In honor of Tina, I've decided to share some of my favorite images of rooms decorated with and often around blue transferware collections.  You can see more rooms decorated with blue transferware on my Pinterest board . To me, Charles Faudree is just about as synonymous with English transferware as he his with French Country Decorating...he seemed to always find a use for it in his incredibly detailed decorating schemes.  Isn't this bedroom charming? I love this next image from Decor Magazine.  Look how the blu
