Brownie Fudge Dessert

I made this yesterday. It's REALLY good. Hard to explain the texture. It's brownie-like, sorta, but not quite. I had no idea what to expect of it. Try it, you'll like it. :-) This is from the Hershey's cookbook, which I bought when I was 10 years old, and it's probably the cookbook I use the most!

Brownie Fudge Dessert

1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup butter or margarine
3 Tbs vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
4 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour
ice cream or whipped cream (optional)

Combine cocoa, oil, and butter in a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water. (I'll bet you could do this in the microwave too). Stir over low heat til butter is melted. Remove from heat, stir in sugar. Add eggs and vanilla just until well combined. Stir flour into mixture until just blended.

Pour batter into ungreased 9x9 pan. Place pan with batter in a 9x13 pan, place hot water to the depth of 1 inch in the 9x13 pan (in other words, bake it in a water bath). Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes until a brownie-like crust forms and a toothpick (or knife) inserted a half inch from the edge comes out clean. Do not overbake. Remove from water bath, let cool til warm (also very good cold!). Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
