We have the most delicious chocolate-fudge cake where I work so I really wanted to try to recreate it and this is what I came up with.
Well it's more like a lot of fudge with a little bit of cake under it but who ever died of to much fudge on their cake? Yeah, nobody. Takes about 2 hours to make.
For the cake:
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 1/2 dl flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
100g dark chocolate
For the Fudge:
120g dark chocolate
1 teaspoon salt
1.5dl cocoa powder
400g confectioners sugar
4 tablespoons milk
How you make it:
Start with the cake:
Step1: preheat your oven to 150 degrees Celsius
Step2: Start melting the butter while you whisk the eggs and the sugar together until it becomes white and fluffy.
Step3: Start melting your chocolate over a double boiler.
Step4: Let the butter cool and then add it to the eggs and sugar mixture along with the other ingredients. Save the chocolate for last.
Step5: Pour the batter into a spring form pan that you have already lined with butter to prevent it from sticking to the sides. Then put it in the oven for about 20-30 minutes.
You should be able to stick a toothpick in the cake and have it come out clean.
Step6: Take it out and let it cool.
It doesn't matter if the cake isn't totally smooth on top. In fact, it's even better if it has sunken a bit in the middle so that it looks a bit like a bowl!
It's fudge time:
Step7: Melt the butter in a heat proof bowl and place it over a double boiler and add the chocolate to it.
Step8: Add all the other ingredients and in the end it should be a shiny, silky mixture.
Step9: Pour the frosting on top of the cake while the cake is still in the spring form.
Step10: Put it in the refrigerator for 3 hours.
Serve with whipped cream and a raspberry sauce that you make by just heating up 200g frozen raspberries in a sauce pan with 0.5dl water. Bring it to a boil and just stir until it's become a runny sauce. ♥
