Dark chocolate fudge cake

November 28, 2016

 

Comfort food may be the one thing everyone can agree on, hence, I made this very rich chocolate cake. I haven’t made a cake in a while and I thought that this would be the perfect one to try. I’ve posted a few chocolate cakes in the past, but this one is definitely the sweetest and richest one by far (so rich that a glass of water to accompany it is a good idea). I hope you like this recipe and try it when you need something sweet and delicious in your life.

 Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 200g dark chocolate (ideally 70% cocoa)

  • 300g caster sugar/ Xylitol (as a substitute for less sugar)

  • 250g unsalted butter

  • 1¼ cups milk

  • ¼ cup oil

  • 2 eggs

  • ½ cup/ 45g Nomu hot chocolate

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 265g plain flour

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 160C (fan forced / convection) / 180C/350F (no fan) (Note 3).

  • Butter a round spring form tin.

  • Combine sugar, butter, half the milk and chocolate in a pan over medium heat.

  • Stir until the butter and chocolate has melted and sugar is dissolved- don’t let it boil.

  • Pour the chocolate mixture into a bowl. Whisk in oil and remaining milk.

  • Lastly, whisk in the eggs.

  • Sift cocoa, baking powder, flour and coffee directly into the bowl. Whisk until smooth.

  • Pour into the tin and let it bake for about 1 hour and 15min. Check to see if the cake is done by inserting a skewer in it to see if it’s ready.

Ganache:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 250g dark chocolate

  • Method:

  • Break the chocolate into small pieces.

  • Pour the cream into a pan and let it simmer.

  • Combine the cream and the chocolate into a blender to get it all mixed well with no lumps. Allow to cool and then spread around the cake generously.
