Toba Garrett's Chocolate Fudge Cake says to
"Measure all ingredients (except chocolate) into a large mixing bowl."

So there is no creaming of the butter/sugar/eggs? You literally put the dry ing. and the wet ing. in all at the same time?

Thanks icon_smile.gif

I don't have her recipe, but that is not an uncommon method for fudge cakes...simply combining the wet and dry ingredients until thouroughly mixed.......

If you make this, let me know how it is. I was contemplating using this for this next week, but don't have much time to play around before hand and see how it turns out. Good luck!

I make this recipe all the time, actually it's the only chocolate cake I make. I dont even like chocolate...really, I HATE chocolate...but this is a goooood cake. Do exactly what it says, put all the ingredients in a bowl and blend for about a minute. After you put in the melted chocolate you are going to mix the entire thing again for 3 minutes. Let me tell you this though, this is a very soft cake. I strongly suggest that after it bakes and cools etc, you chill it in the frig before you level it or do any kind of carving. Every couple that has had this at a tasting has said it's dreamy !!!!!
Good luck

Thank you all so much! I will let you know how it turns out.

pounds6... so it isn't a dense cake? I am looking for something that will be nice and strong, good for stacking, carving, fondant. Is this not the cake for that?

This is a very good choc cake...it is very dense...I have used it for stacking before with no problem. thumbs_up.gif I ususally bake one day, then torte, dam fill the next and don't have a problem with it being "soft" on the second day.

Now see, different people have different perceptions of things. I would say it is definately not a dense cake. Its light and fluffy and soft....at least mine comes out that way. I have not had any problems with it in stacking etc but try it and see what you think. Best of Luck!
