Lisa, showing you the way to a guaranteed climax

Chocolate Climaxes

1 stick butter
5 squares unsweetened chocolate, broken
2 cups white granulated sugar
1 cup cold water
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup self-rising flour
½ cup unsweetened cocoa
1 cup mayonnaise, at room temperature

Preheat oven to 325*F. Grease and line a 1 x 7 x 11 inch cake pan with baking parchment.
Place the butter, chocolate, white sugar and 1 cup cold water in a heavy saucepan. Heat gently, stirring occasionally until the chocolate and butter have melted BUT DO NOT allow to boil. Take off heat and add vanilla.
Sift the flours into a bowl, make a well in the center and add the mayonnaise and about ½ of the mixture; beat with whisk until smooth. Gradually whisk in remaining chocolate.
Pour in to prepared pan and bake on the center shelf of oven for 50 minutes or until slightly risen and firm to the touch. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool. Remove from pan and peel off parchment. Cut into squares. Take a bite and hold on for the ride!
