Something really quick
[I do have to make a side note... I love tahina (sesame seed spread). In Israel it's very popular and is used in many different recipes, from salads to dips to sauces, and in baking as well. It deserves a space on every shelf.]
The following makes a small pan. Quantities can be of course doubled, tripled etc, as you desire.
3\4 cup sugar
3\4 cup tahina
1\2 cup cocoa powder (*regarding the last three I'll make a bold confession: I no longer measure quantities. My eye has become trained enough. This saves some cleanup, but at first of course you'd want to use a measuring cup)
1 tbsp. baking powder
That's it. This isn't a mistake, no flour! Into a mixing bowl it all goes, and mix well. You are supposed to get a very gooey mass (or should I say mess? Certainly, if you allow little hands to help!). Pour into paper-lined baking pan and bake for about 20-25 minutes, checking often. You don't want to overdo - the middle is supposed to retain its delicious gooey quality.
Very quick and easy to make if unexpected guests are coming through, and cleanup is a breeze!
