Chocolate Fudge Cake

People are always asking me for this recipe. Dinners being the most recent and as she is off to Kiwiland, how could I say no.

Oven at 350C/ 180F

Grease a tin about the size of a biscuit tin like the ones you get for Christmas from aged aunts.

  • 8 oz butter/ margarine
  • 20 oz sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 12 oz flour
  • 4 oz cocoa
  • Couple of drops of vanilla essence (optional)
  1. Melt the butter/ marge in a large saucepan – all ingredients will be going in here so…
  2. Remove from heat and stir in all that sugar!
  3. Add eggs one by one stirring after each
  4. Depending on your mood sift or dump in flour and cocoa
  5. If you have it, throw in a few drops of vanilla essence.
  6. Turn into the greased tin and cook for 30 – 45 mins. It can take a while and depends on what consistency cake you like as well.
  7. Enjoy hot with ice cream or cool like brownies for a good few days.

I sometimes cut out a message in paper and sift icing sugar on top while it is still warm and it sticks well. Actually I haven’t done that in years and years…

  1. I was tasting a slice of chocolate fudge cake I had bought today at the UL Farmers’ market and thought that I would love to try and make one myself. Google brought me to your old post – so nice to learn a recipe from someone you actually know:)

    Thanks a million!
