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


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. 


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.
