Who can say no to a slice of chocolate fudge cake? This chocolate fudge cake recipe is a bronze-medal winner. The fudgy texture is thanks to a generous amount of quality melted chocolate and almond meal in the batter. I’d describe it as halfway between a chocolate mud cake and a regular chocolate butter cake. Either way, it’s 100% fabulous. Chocoholics will also be pleased with the topping of rich and glossy chocolate ganache.
The chocolate fudge cake itself is not terribly tall but packs more than enough flavour and richness in each slice as a single layer. I love baking this cake for afternoon tea, birthdays and office tea parties.
