Chocolate Fudge Cake


Category : ,

There is something so satisfying when you bake a cake, give it to a friend and they go...."mmmmmmmm......" and give you the thumbs up when it's still in their mouth. And well, quite frankly it would be impossible not to have that reaction when you bite into a slice of this chocolate fudge cake! I made mine with leftover Lindt dark chocolate from Easter (yes folks, Easter!). They are cut into brownie slices, but you'll find it hard to stop at one slice!
They would also be great with some whipped cream, or even chocolate mousse for an all round chocolate hit.

Chocolate Fudge Cake

250g dark eating chocolate, chopped
125g butter, chopped
2/3 cup (150g) caster sugar
2/3 cup (100g) self-raising flour
4 eggs, lightly beaten

1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease 19cm x 29cm lamington pan; line base and long sides with baking paper, extending paper 5cm above sides.

2. Stir chocolate and butter in a medium heatproof bowl over a medium saucepan of simmering water (do not allow the water to touch base of bowl); cool.

3. Combine chocolate mixture and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl; beat on low speed with an electric mixer until ingredients are combined. Increase speed to medium; beat for 3 minutes or until mixture is changed in colour and smooth.

4. Pour mixture into pan; bake about 30 minutes. Stand cake 5 minutes before turning, top-side up, onto wire rack to cool. Serve dusted with sifted icing sugar if desired.

Serves 12.

Voila! Bon Appétit!


I don't think I should have looked at this post, I'm dying for a slice!

That looks delicious-is it very brownie like? The shape of course reminds me of a brownie and by the sounds of it, it's nice and hudgey like a brownie :)
