How To Make Chocolate Fudge Cake

April 16th, 2012 Cooking

If you have a child with a birthday coming up, or if you've got an insatiable sweet tooth, you know how difficult it can be to resist the perfect chocolate cake. If you've been looking for a recipe with chocolate-y goodness to tame even the most intense craving, this fudge cake could be just what you've been waiting for. It's rich, dense and full of the stuff you love. Best of all, it's really easy to make! Here's the recipe, courtesy of Reluctant Gourmet.

Ingredients
1 pound dark chocolate or 2 2/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup (1 stick, 4 ounces) unsalted butter
4 large eggs, separated
1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon hot water

Baking the cake is pretty simple - start by melting the chocolate and butter together, either in a saucepan over low heat or in the microwave. Mix the two ingredients together until they're nice and smooth. Next, beat in the egg yolks, one at a time. After this, add the flour, sugar and hot water, once again stirring until smooth.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until they're stiff, but not dry. Carefully fold them into the chocolate. Spoon the entire mixture into a cake pan lined with parchment paper and bake in a 425-degree oven for about 15 minutes. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool completely, then store it in the refrigerator until it's ready to serve. When it's time to eat, take it out of the pan and place sweetened whipped cream on top.
