Method

Choc Fudge Cake is a community recipe submitted by AStuart and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Beat Eggs and Sugar with electric beater until light yellow and fluffy - ensure you add sugar gradually. Sift together remaining dry ingredients of the cake - sifting well.
  • Gently melt margarine, milk and vanilla essence. Fold the flour mixture into the egg mixture, then add the hot milk mixture (do not beat).
  • Bake 180*C for 25-30 min.
  • For the ICING: Sift together confectioners' sugar and unsweetened cocoa. Heat butter, water and castor sugar. Pour into confectioners' sugar mixture and beat until mixture is smooth and thick – should leave a trail.
  • For a dessert - pour the icing immediately onto the cake whilst the cake is still hot (i.e. when it's been out of the oven for about 5/10 mins)
  • To serve the cake at a tea - make the icing when the cake is already out of the oven (40 min +) and pour immediately over the cake.
