Hot Fudge Cake

Fudge cake recipes are easy to find on the Internet and online. But sometimes, it is difficult to find a recipe that is right for you and your tastes. For example, if you like your fudge cake on the sweeter side, you may want to look for a recipe that does not use evaporated milk or buttermilk. You may also want to see if the recipes contain cocoa powder. If you are using all-purpose flour, your cake will turn out dry. Frozen or fresh fudge cake batter may have a different consistency than you are used to. So, in order for you to make the best fudge cake at home, follow these simple tips before you start baking:


Hot Fudge Cake


Ingredients:     

1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces, softened 

2 tablespoons water 

2 cups granulated sugar 

2 eggs 

3/4 teaspoon salt 

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 

1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda 

3 cups all-purpose flour 

4 teaspoons vanilla extract (preferably with vanilla bean seeds) 4 tablespoons hot coffee, cooled and stirred in the bowl of an electric mixer. 

12 mugs of hot chocolate or milk to serve. 



Directions: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease and flour three 8-inch round cake pans. In a small saucepan, combine butter, sugar, and water. 

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate until melted. 

Beat in the eggs one at a time until smooth; this is best done with a mixer on medium speed. Stir in the salt and turn the mixer to low speed. 

Add the flour to the batter 1 cup at a time alternately with 3 tablespoons of coffee and vanilla extract until all ingredients are well blended. 

Divide batter between prepared pans, spreading evenly with an offset spatula. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a rack and cool completely.
