Chocolate fudge cake recipe

Chocolate fudge cake Ingredients:

chocolate fudge cake

2 2/3 cups of flour

just over a 3/4 cup of granulated sugar

1/3 cup light brown sugar

1/4 cup of good cocoa powder

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon of salt

3 medium eggs

just under 3/4 of a cup of sour cream

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled

1/2 cup corn oil

1 1/3 cups cold water (fridge)

For the fudge icing topping:

6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, minimum 70 percent cocoa solids

just a little over 1 cup of unsalted butter, softened

1 3/4 cups icing sugar, sifted

1 tablespoon vanilla extract


350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Butter and line the bottom of 2 (8-inch) cake pans.

Mix together the flour, sugars, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.

In another bowl whisk together the eggs, sour cream and vanilla until blended together.

Using a standing or handheld electric mixer beat together the melted butter and corn oil until just blended. You will need another large bowl for this if using a hand mixer. If you are using a standing mixer then it comes with its own bowl.

Next mix in the water. Add the dry ingredients all at once and mix together on a slow speed. Add the egg mixture, and mix again until everything is blended and then pour into the prepared tins.

Bake for for 45 to 50 minutes until a tooth pick comes out clean. Let the cakes cool in their pans on a wire rack for 15 minutes, and then turn the cakes out on the rack to cool completely.

For the icing topping:

Melt your chocolate in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes on medium you could melt it in a bowl sitting over a pan of simmering water. Then let the chocolate cool slightly.

In another bowl mix the butter until it's soft and creamy and then add the sifted icing sugar and mix again until everything's light and fluffy.

Then gently add the vanilla and chocolate and mix together until everything is silky and smooth.

Put about a quarter of the icing in between the cake layers. Then ice the top of your cake spreading and smoothing with a spatula.
