Chocolate Fudge Cake - A Fathers Day Surprise


i believe for your parents, everyday is their day, but as a tradition Father's Day is celebrated every year.. so on behalf of my daughters... I baked that cake for my husband... 

For cake:

butter 8 oz (8 tbsp)
brown sugar 8 oz (1 cup)
vanilla essence 1 1/2 tsp
eggs 4
flour 6 oz
baking powder 2 tsp
cocoa powder 4 oz (1/4 cup)
cooking chocolate melted 4 oz
milk 4 tbsp


for fudge icing:

butter 4 oz (4 tbsp)
cream 3/4th cup
cooking chocolate 4 oz
cocoa powder 2 tbsp
vanilla essence 1 tsp
icing sugar 10 oz (1 1/4 cup)

in a mixing bowl add butter 


add brown sugar, mix well till light and fluffy


add vanilla essence mix well


separately sift flour, baking powder and cocoa powder


mix all sifted dry ingredients well


add one egg and 1 -2 tbsp of flour mixture in prepared mixture... mix well... then another egg and some mixture... continue doing the same till all eggs combined well.

add the remaining flour mixture mix well till combined


add the melted chocolate.. mix well till combine together


pre-heat oven on 350 F / 180 C... and grease two 8 inch round pans... and dust them with some flour


pour the prepared chocolate cake mixture in the pans


and bake them for 35-40 minutes or until done completely


take the cake out of the pans on wire rack... and cool completely before icing


for icing: in a pot add cream, butter, chopped cooking chocolate and cocoa powder... cook on low heat till chocolate melts


now keep that icing aside... and cool completely...


in cooled icing add icing sugar... but please sifted else getting rids of lumps would be most difficult at this stage


mix well til combined and fudge icing is done


now, assembling:

take one cake, spread the 1/4th of prepared icing


put the other baked cake over it... start spreading remaining icing on side and on top...

cover completely


now, decorate as desired..
