Chocolate Fudge Cake

My pudding of choice is Chocolate Fudge Cake, warm with vanilla ice cream. I may ooh and aah over all of the other choices - but I'll usually go for the old favourite.

Ages ago, about February I think, my friend Lisa blogged about the chocolate fudge cake recipe we used to make when we were at school. I asked her for the recipe, and she blogged it here.

So, on Saturday I finally got around to making it. I also made three little cupcakes, just so we could try it out before cutting into the big cake. (Luu was out, so she didn't get a cupcake)

Verdict? The cake was good.

We ate the second half the next day, warmed up, with strawberries and clotted cream left from Mark's birthday. It was even better warm! But, you know, back in the mid eighties when I last made it, I wouldn't have dreamed of warming cake up to eat it, but now it's quite normal.

The cake will be made again, and the recipe passed on. I think, perhaps, next time I won't cook it for quite so long. Again, these days, Chocolate Fudge Cake should be just a bit squishy!

  1. so cool to see a recipe stand the test of time! warm it up? never thought of that, sounds gooood!
    guess we have Jean to thank (I think) for this scrumptious cake - or was it really Mrs Lycett?
    Glad it worked out for you - it can be a bit hit and miss!

  2. Hello Sarah
    Thank you for visiting my blog and for your lovely comments. Ruby sounds great!
    I have a very sweet tooth and that recipe sounds lovely...I can see myself going into the sweet cupboard now to satisfy my sweet tooth after having seen your pictures! And I am trying to be so good at the moment...
