Easy Peasy Chocolate Fudge Cake

THE best type of cake there is. I never pass up an opportunity for chocolate fudge cake- if it’s on the menu, nothing else stands a chance. Best served hot with vanilla ice cream. This recipe comes from Delia’s ‘Chocolate’ cookery book and is very easy and fairly invincible.

175g self raising flour
1 rounded teaspoon baking powder
175g butter
175g light brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 rounded tablespoon cocoa powder

Preheat the oven to 170°C. Weigh out the flour. Remove 1 rounded tablespoon flour and add 1 rounded tablespoon cocoa powder. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix. Pour into a greased cake tin and bake on the middle shelf for 30mins. Leave to cool on wire rack before icing or dusting with cocoa powder.


  1. Yum ,that does look good! Is there any left?
