A delicious chocolate cake recipe.

Cake[edit | edit source]

Atomic Fudge Cake

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Mix the dry ingredients well in a large bowl. For better texture, sift the dry ingredients together with the help of a wooden spatula.
  2. Add the eggs, milk, vanilla and vegetable oil and mix well, then add the water. Mix it until it has a lot of little bubbles. This batter will be very thin.
  3. Pour into two greased 9 inch round baking pans.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for thirty minutes (about 20 minutes for a convection oven), or until a cake tester comes out clean. Remember not to over bake the cake, as it may become really dry and lose all it's moisture.

Frosting/filling[edit | edit source]

Atomic Fudge Cake

Note: this should only be done after the cake has cooled and is ready for frosting.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Melt the chocolate by placing it in a small bowl or pot and placing that in boiling water.
  2. Mix the sugar and cocoa together in a small bowl and mix in the water.
  3. Stir the sugar/cocoa/water mix into the melted chocolate
  4. quickly stir in the cream and mix until it has a nice smooth consistency.
  5. Immediately 'frost' the cake with this, and make sure that there is quite a bit between the two layers of cake. The cake will need to be refrigerated to harden the fudge, so don't worry about its relatively liquid nature.
  6. Refrigerate Cake

Serving[edit | edit source]

This cake is meant to be served warm after being refrigerated. To serve, slice a piece and microwave it for about 20 seconds. It is heavenly as the fudge melts and soaks into the cake. Serve with ice cream if you so desire.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Higher quality chocolate and baking cocoa will make a HUGE difference in this cake. It is very worth the extra expense.
  • A hot fudge sauce to go over top of the cake is a nice extra touch.
  • Don't try and substitute baker's chocolate for the dark chocolate. The huge amount of sugar you'd have to add would be a pain, especially if using the powdered sugar, and if you use regular sugar, it gets grainy and crunchy.
  • Spices such as cinnamon can be added to the frosting if desired.
