ALL-IN-ONE CHOCOLATE FUDGE CAKES


COOKBOOK: THE BAKING COOKBOOK

RATE: ❤️❤️❤️👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻💲

Desserts are not my strongest but not only did I enjoy making these little slices but I also noticed that Yvette was eating them like she had never eaten chocolate slices in her life! I had to hide the plate in order to still have some to offer to my guests. I think these fudge-cakes were a hit!

RECIPE: I was sceptical about the measurements but they were spot on. I chose not to top them with soft fudge sweets. I don’t even know what these are but it sounds like calories upon calories of sugar! I instead crumbled flake chocolate on top of fudge and it was delicious!

RECIPE

MAKES 15 SQUARES

175g soft dark brown sugar

175g butter, softened

150g self raising flour

25g cocoa powder

pinch of salt

3 eggs, lighten beaten

1 tablespoon golden syrup

FUDGE TOPPING

75g sugar

150ml evaporated milk

175g plain dark chocolate, roughly chopped

40g butter, softened

Flake chocolate, roughly crumbed

Preheat the oven to 180C

Grease and line a cake tin 28 x 18 x 2.5cm with greaseproof paper.

Place the softened brown sugar and butter in a bowl and sift in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Add the eggs and golden syrup, then beat with an electric beater for 2 minutes. Then add two tablespoons of warm water and beating for a further 1 minute.

Turn the mixture into the prepared tin and level the top with the back of a spoon. Bake on the centre shelf in the oven for 30 minutes or until firm to touch. Turn the cake out onto a wire rack and leave to cool before removing the baking parchment.

To make the topping, gently heat the sugar and evaporated milk in a saucepan, stirring frequently, until the sugar has dissolved. Bring the mixture to the boil and simmer for 6 minutes with very little stirring.

Remove the mixture from the heat. Add the chocolate and butter and stir until melted and blended. Pour into a bowl and allow to cool down for 10minutes. Spread the topping over the cake and sprinkle with crumbled flake (or any other chocolate decoration). Cut into slices or squares. Serve.
