FUDGE AND NUT BROWNIE CAKE

This recipe was in a collection of recipes I found.

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, your preference

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease and flour a one 9-inch cake round cake pan and set aside.

Combine the butter and corn syrup in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Add the chocolate chips and stir until melted. Remove from the heat. Add the sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Stir until thoroughly combined. Blend in the flour and the nuts. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees about 30 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to finish cooling. Make the glaze below and pour over the cooled cake.

GLAZE:

2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tbsps butter
4 tbsps dark corn syrup
2 tsps milk
Chopped nuts for garnish

In a saucepan, combine chocolate, butter, and corn syrup. Cook the mixture over low heat until the chocolate melts. Remove from the heat and stir in the milk. Pour glaze over cake while it is still on the wire rack (be sure to have a cookie sheet, waxed paper, or something under the rack to catch any drips. Let stand until glaze sets. Garnish with chopped nuts, if desired.
