Help Please With A Chocolate Fudge Cake Recipe
Hilary contacted me and asked about helping her find a dense, extremely chocolaty and fudgey, chocolate layer cake. So I contacted Chef Terrell Garrett and he sent me this recipe that he calls, ‘The Absolute, Ultimate, Deep, Dark and Rich Chocolate Fudge Cake.”
With a name like that, who can resist? It’s not a layer cake as requested by Hilary, but I think you will enjoy it like it is. Chef Garrett says
“This cake is every chocolate lover’s dream and not your typical cake. It is almost a flour-less chocolate cake and very dense”.
Chocolate Fudge Cake Recipe
l 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
How To Prepare At Home
Preheat the oven to 325F.
Grease an 8" cake pan and line the bottom with parchment. Set aside.
In a saucepan set over low heat, or in a microwave, melt together the chocolate and butter, stirring till smooth.
Beat in the egg yolks, one at a time, then add the flour, sugar and hot water, stirring till smooth.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites till stiff but not dry. Fold them into the chocolate mixture.
Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes (cake won't look done in the center).
Remove the cake from the oven, leaving it in the cake pan, and cool completely on a wire rack. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Remove the cake from the pan, place it on a plate and serve topped with sweetened whipped cream.
