Chocolate Fudge Cake

This recipe comes out of Nigella Bites and is absolutely luscious. I made it today for my son Tanner's 17th birthday and from the reactions from everyone I do believe it might be my new "go to" recipe for special occasions from now on.

I do need to learn patience though....... I just can't seem to wait for any cake to cool enough to put the icing on. In my defense, I was fighting off 3 teenagers and a 10 year old who wanted to dip into my frosting while the cake was cooling, so they may have rushed me just a bit. Oh well! No one seemed to mind, they all loved it!

Here is a link if you want to try Nigella's Chocolate Fudge Cake.


  1. Mika, I love that cake. I first had it at a friend's BBQ housewarming and his mum had made the cake. I asked her for the recipe and she told me it was in Nigella Bites. At that stage I was not so obsessed with cooking, but that all changed with this one cake and my first Nigella cookbook. I often make this cake for adults for birthdays. My kids are at the age where they want a 'shaped' cake - next one I have to do is a butterfly.

    I don't understand your duck picture on this post. Is it an American thing? ... I am confused.

  2. Jutta,
    I think I left my blog up and my son had fun with it while I was gone. I was shocked when I saw it! LOL! Teenagers! ha ha!

  3. I've made this!! IT's utterly delicious, isn't it?

    I had EXACTLY the same problem with the icing!! It slid right off because the cake was still warm.
