Hot Fudge Brownies

This recipe is a cake often called Hot Fudge Cake. My kids always call it Hot Fudge Brownies.  Maybe it's because the recipe originally called for a 9x9 pan but we put it into a 9x13.  We like the cake part thinner.  Hot and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream is the best way to eat this.
