This weeks Cake of the Week at The Gasoline Pony is Chocolate Fudge cake. It’s a pretty easy one that really does pack a chocolate punch. This cake is the basis of most of the cakes I decorate. It is easily cut into shape and keeps without refrigeration for up to two weeks.
So if you are looking for a fudgey chocolate cake that is easy to make and decorate, try this recipe. Even if you slathered it with a bit of nutella this cake would work it’s spell on you.
Use a good dark cocoa for the best results.
Change it up, and flavour it with orange too. Just add the zest of two oranges to the mixture. Doesn’t it look great with honeycomb?. You could decorate this cake with just about anything you could dream up. One of the all time favourites is a whole bag of assorted lollies or perhaps just smarties or even a punnet of strawberries and chocolate shavings.
This is your easy everyday cake.
