Hot Fudge Cakes Sun, 04/17/11 5:55 PM (permalink)
I love them, doesn't seem like places have them anymore. Was it Hot Shoppes[Marriott owned, now no more] or Howard Johnsons that had primo HFC"s. Anybody got a place that serves a good one?

    Our kids always loved them at Shoney's.

      I, too, ate them for years at Shoney's both during and after it's Big Boy days.  Could be other Big Boy outlets have them.

        Thunder Down Under?

          The Frisch's Big Boy restaurants have it.

              I sure do miss Howard Johnson's, though.  Particulary the fried clams and ice cream.

                Hot Fudge Cake is really easy to make. 
                I do the really easy way:
                Bake a Jiffy chocolate cake in a 8" pan.
                Cut into squares, cut squares into 2 pieces, vanilla ice cream on bottom piece, add top piece, cover with hot fudge, top with Redi Whip & a cherry.
                I always have all of the ingredients except for the ice cream on hand & this is a great quick dessert.

                    Will definitely make the one claracamille posted - I stoped at a local "ice cream, etc." place called Frizzles and pulled through the drive thru and asked if they had hot fudge cake and the girl mumbled they did and quoted a price I couldn't understand. Drove up and she said that will be $4.87! What! For a small brownie like piece of cake, few scoops of ice cream and whipped cream w/a cherry on top! I paid and took it home to my son. It certainly wasn't worth $4.87.

                      Our Sonic (many moons ago) used to serve a good hot fudge cake and I miss them; along with a really good steak sandwich they made. Our only Shoney's closed and I miss theirs too and their strawberry pie. I made one the other day and it turned out pretty good.
