So a while back I wrote that I was trying to find my feet with baking and that I had tried a recipe for a chocolate fudge cake.
This chocolate fudge cake
It was lovely for a first try but I did overcook it and I knew it could be much better. Enter my friend Tinka (her of the fabulous sweet chilli recipe https://recessionbitesblog.wordpress.com/2014/01/09/sweet-chilli-sauce/). She suggests an alternative to the chocolate fudge cake recipe and BANG it’s forever love. That cake was seriously delicious and a child couldn’t mess this recipe up it’s that easy.
So here it is and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. And if you’re lucky maybe one day Tinka will cook for you too!
200 g unsalted butter, 200 g caster or granulated sugar, 1 heaped table spoon of white flour, 4 eggs, 200 g dark chocolate, splash of your drink of choice (rum or whisky for me), 1 pinch of salt.
As for the cake mould, I have a heart shaped silicone one I bought in Ikea ages ago and never used before. Not sure what the measurements are but it’s nothing too big.
Pre-heat the oven to 180 C
In a bowl placed on a simmering pot melt your butter, remove the bowl from the heat and mix the sugar in the melted butter, add your eggs (one at a time) and keep mixing it all up. While your water is still hot you should place another bowl on it with the broken down chocolate bars and melt those. While the chocolate is melting incorporate the flour into your cake mix and then add the melted chocolate. Give it a good mix and pour into your buttered mould.
Cook for approx 30.
