Mystery Mocha Cake

My mother used to make this for us and we always were so excited when we knew it was on the menu! She would stir it up and pop it in the oven shortly before we sat down to eat dinner, so it would be all warm and gooey for dessert. We always ate it plain but as I got older I figured, hey this would be awesome with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. The longer it sits the thicker the sauce gets and if you refrigerate the cake it's almost pudding-like.
