Chocolate Fudge Cake.

Last night we had a few of our friends round for dinner and I really fancied the idea of making a Chocolate Fudge Cake.  I have tried making them before but I can never get them as moist as the ones you buy in the shops.  For a while I have been following The Crazy Kitchen.  It is a great source of ideas and inspiration for cooking with toddlers.  Yesterday I on The Crazy Kitchen I found the most amazing looking chocolate fudge cake.  It looked so delicious I just had to try it.  I was also intrigued as the cake mixture used Greek yoghurt (one of my favourite foods) and bicarb of soda.

We got lovely and messy.  Mimi wasn't interested in baking yesterday until she heard the mixer going and saw all the chocolate!  She said it tasted fizzy, it must have been the combination of the yoghurt and the bicarb.

Here is our end result.  I was a bit worried when I added my frosting as it seemed really greasy (I am not sure if it was supposed to be like that) but once it started to set it disappeared and left you with a super scrummy topping.  Not only that but it was super easy to make.  Some recipes are so complex and confusing that you feel like a failure before you have even begun.
With the idea of it being served up at dinner I decided to decorate it with mini eggs for Easter.  Then I had a random idea that I could turn the eggs gold by painting them with some gold food colouring I had left over from Christmas.  I was a bit disappointed as they weren't gold gold, but I liked the colour all the same.

Yum Chocolate Fudge Cake and Whipped Cream!

The review on The Crazy Kitchen said 

 "This cake has got to be the best and one of the easiest chocolate cakes I have ever made." 
I totally agree, this really was the easiest chocolate fudge cakes I have made and what's more it was deliciously moist.  I will certainly make this again.


  1. The cake looks great! Now you mention it I do remember the frosting looking as though it had gone wrong but then it miraculously seems to come together & spread really easily.
    I think the original recipe had buttermilk in the cake but I improvised & used the yoghurt.
    Thanks for the mention & so glad that you used my recipe!

  2. Yummy! I'll have a large slice please!!!
