Anyone got any Fabulous Chocolate Fudge Cake recipes they can link me to?

Asked by BeccaBoo (2725points) July 4th, 2011

My son has his 8th birthday in a week. He hates cake, but loves my mothers chocolate fudge cake (its incredible, gooey with tons of butter cream and a fudgy icing) however as we are not on speaking terms I need the help. Can you point me in the direction of tried and tested ultimate chocolate fudge cake, so that I can do this please!!

Is it the icing and filling that your son loves rather than the cake part of the cake “He hates cake”.

If so, just make a moist chocolate cake and concentrate on the icing.

Here, here.

@gailcalled No he does not really like the dry texture of cake, but loves the gooey one my mum makes, unfortunalty I have not been able t find anything close. I will try the second recipe that you posted though…looks promising. Thanks

@BeccaBoo: Hold the presses. This one looks moister.

This one for Chocolate Pudding Cake will probably work for you.

I’ve seen a bunch of yummy sounding Chocolate Lava Cake recipes. It has an almost chocolate liquid center. The only thing is, all of these recipes are for smaller individual sized cakes, but if that isn’t a problem, then this might be the cake for you.

And here is another Pudding Cake recipe, with lots of helpful hints.

Can’t you find a cousin or friend who would secretely get the recipe out of your mom for you? :D

@BeccaBoo: Or, might this be a moment to reconnect with your mom or at least take a baby step? Asking for a recipe is about as unthreatening a move as I can think of. And if she knows its her grandson who’s asking, that might erase some past hurt.

Here is a great one no matter what you call it – better than sex cake

@blueiiznh: Normally I agree with you, but here I take exception.

This is not a cake but a chemistry experiment.

1 (18.25 ounce) package devil’s food cake mix
½ (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
6 ounces caramel ice cream topping
3 (1.4 ounce) bars chocolate covered toffee, chopped
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

It is easy to make a moist fudge cake from scratch and frost with sweetened real whipped cream and chopped Heath Bars.

@gailcalled I agree on how easy it is to make cake and frosting not from a box. That is also my norm. I was simply offering the OP a thought. So sorry

gailcalled's avatar

No need to be sorry. I am relieved, however, to know that you haven’t lowered your standards.

(Are you steaming today in NH?)

@gailcalled Oh please come to my kitchen and make some of these for us….you’d be forever loved by us :-) Am going to have a little experiment with some of these at the weekend. My son won’t be around so I will use my friends as taste testers. Oh I am so NOT looking forward to this, they usually end in distaster lol.
As for the mum thing, trust me it’s not worth it.

@BeccaBoo: Sorry about your mum.

And thanks for the offer but I stopped baking years ago, probably about the time that the family members sadly switched from pudding to fruit.
