I found this recipe from Brown Eye Baker.

Zeke helped me mix all the ingredients together and into the oven it went for 40 minutes. Timer goes off - cake is still liquid. What's a girl to do? Keep cooking it I suppose so I just kept cooking it...and cooking it....aaaaaaaand cooking it. Once I smelled it burning, I gave up. I took it out and I had fudge sauce with blackened edges.
I was seriously scratching my head people. I tried Googling it but all that gave me was more hot fudge recipes. I am apparently only the one who has ever wondered why "my hot fudge cake is so runny". I thought maybe I was crazy. I thought maybe the great grandmother really liked gooey liquid cake and I was misinterpreting what it was supposed to look like. I thought I messed up when I one and halfed the recipe. I blamed it on Zeke - he must have thrown an extra ingredient in there when I wasn't looking. It was the oven's fault. I need a new oven. I was dumbfounded.
I decided to make the best out of it and posted my fail on Instagram/Facebook and stated my innocence in any wrongdoing in the creation of this cake. One of my friends commented something alone the lines of "I did that once. I used powerdered sugar instead of flour."
Enter the lightbulb. And the bell. DING!DING!DING!
Yup, I used powdered sugar instead of flour. I grabbed the wrong canister without even thinking. Darn you Pinterest and your gorgeous pictures convincing me to fill my pantry with clear organized jars.
Brown Eyed Baker - I'm sure your great grandmother's recipe is wonderful. I'm sorry I ever doubted her!! I totally am going to try to redeem myself and try again with flour.
