    The Ultimate Chocolate Fudge Cake

    Hello My Lovelies,

    So its another baking post today … I did make this cake about 4-5 months ago for Jays 21st … but I was just getting loads of blog inspiration, so certain posts just came before.

    Jay & I are obsessed with a little restaurant/bar in our hometown, which to some wouldn’t be seen as much but its our favourite and he loves their chocolate fudge cake. I knew I wouldn’t be able to make one as good as theirs but I did my best and it was pretty amazing.

    Especially when you put a slice in the microwave for 30/40 seconds and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It was the dogs b*ll*cks!!

    I got the recipe from BBC Food.

    What You’ll Need;

    Cake –

    200g Plain Chocolate 

    200g Butter + extra for greasing

    100ml Water

    125g Self-Raising Flour

    125g Plain Flour

    25g Cocoa Powder 

    200g Light Muscovado Sugar

    200g Golden Caster Sugar

    3 Eggs

    75ml Crème Fraîche

    Chocolate Buttercream Icing –

    50g Plain Chocolate

    100g Unsalted Butter

    200g Icing Sugar 

    1 tsp Vanilla Extract

    Milk

    For the chocolate ganache –

    150ml Double Cream

    1 tsp Vanilla Extract

    1 tsp Unsalted Butter 

    150g Plain chocolate, plus extra chocolate shavings (to decorate)

     

    Method;

    As always you start with preheating the oven (170C)

    Next melt the butter, water & chocolate together in a saucepan over a low heat, until smooth, then let to sit to cool.

    Sift your flour & cocoa powder into a bowl and mix in the muscovado & caster sugar.

    Beat your eggs and crème fraîche in a separate bowl, then beat  in your chocolate mixture & fold in the flour until smooth.

    Divide the batter between tins and bake for 35-40 mins / Remove the cakes for the oven and set aside to cool.

    ~~~~

    For the icing, melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water.

    Beat the butter in a bowl until smooth and then beat in the icing sugar, vanilla extract and fold in the melted chocolate until smooth, if the mixture is a little stiff add a few drops of milk.

    ~~~~

    For the ganache, heat the cream, vanilla extract, butter and chocolate in a pan & remove the pan from the heat and whisk the mixture until smooth and thickened.

    ~~~~

    To assemble, carefully remove the cakes from the tins & spread the chocolate buttercream over the top of one of the chocolate cakes, then carefully top with the other cake. Transfer the cake to a serving plate and spoon the chocolate ganache over the top of the cake, allowing it to drizzle over the edge. Garnish with chocolate shavings and serve in slices.

    Stay Weird … X

      This sounds so yummy! I have used the same chocolate cake recipe for ages, but I might have to try this one out on the chocolate lovers in my family.
