I have no idea how to classify this dessert, other than by calling it a somewhat frozen, very chocolatey and incredibly easy cake wedge. Most things can be categorized – pie, pudding, cake, what have you. This one has me stumped. Hubby thought maybe frozen fudge, but that doesn’t seem right. You’ll have to be the judge. All I know is it comes from a wonderful cookbook by Martha Hall Foose, titled Screen Doors and Sweet Tea, Recipes and Tales from a Southern Cook , and it was easy to make with things I had on hand. It made a nice treat for Father’s Day and one piece was definitely rich enough.
The best way to check out “Darkness on the Delta” is to get the book, which I think you’ll be pleased with. But, barring that, it is also available online in Delta Magazine. Fudgy, cool, bittersweet – yep, that’s good enough for me on a summer evening.
