Rich Chocolate Fudge Cake

Hello bakers!

Tis the season to spend time with family and friends, giving and receiving exciting gifts, and, of course, enjoying decadent desserts. This holiday you can celebrate with my Rich Chocolate Fudge Cake! It’s easy to prepare and oh-so-delicious!

This tender, moist, and deeply luscious chocolate cake will be compared to the baked good of your dreams.  A wonderful cross between a gooey brownie and a luscious intense chocolate cake; butter and rich chocolate are a big part of making this so amazing.  It’s quickly mixed together, making a batter that’s heavy, dark, and rich.  No frosting needed, just a dusting of confectionary sugar for this perfectly indulgent family favorite.  

Send your guests into a dream state after their first bite.  It’s simply the best ever chocolate fudge cake you’ll ever have.

Meet ya in the kitchen!

For the Cake:

1 cup butter, softened

4 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 3/4 cups granulated sugar

4 large eggs, room temperature

1 cup flour, sifted

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup walnuts, toasted, chopped

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9-inch square pan with cooking spray. Line bottom and sides of the pan with parchment paper allowing 4 to 5 inches to extend over the sides.  Coat the parchment paper with cooking spray.  Set aside.

Place butter and chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave on HIGH until completely melted, about 1 minute, stirring until smooth.  In the bowl of a stand-up mixer, add the melted chocolate and sugar and blend well.  Add the eggs, 1 at a time, blend after each addition.  Add in the flour and salt.  Mix in chopped walnuts and vanilla extract. Mix until ingredients are combined.

Pour cake mixture into prepared pan.  Bake 45-50 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool in pan on a wire rack, 30 minutes.  Lift cake from pan using parchment paper sides as handles, and cool completely before cutting into squares and dusting with powdered sugar

Thanks for stopping by.

Bake some Love this Holiday Season!
