This dessert, from Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics, was a huge hit at supper club. Think of it as hot brownie batter (our friend Amy suggested renaming it “Runny Brownie”). It has a crusty top with a molten chocolate interior. You will definitely want to serve this with ice cream or a big glass of milk to cut the richness. Enjoy!
