The best chocolate fudge cake you will ever make!

Quite a claim but this cake is so absurdly easy and so so so yummy. The only down side is that it is packed full of sugar, not so good but fine as an occasional treat. Unfortunately I am the words most messiest cake decorator so the above image is a from weheartit, but you get the idea.



For the cake:

250g Self Raising Flour

325g Golden Caster Sugar

1/4 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda

3 heaped tbsp Cocoa

250g Butter

250ml Coca Cola

125ml Milk

2 Medium Eggs

1tsp Vanilla Extract


For the frosting:

200g Butter

4 tbsp Coca Cola

3 heaped tbsp Cocoa

400g Icing sugar


Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa and bicarbonate of soda. Melt the butter together with the coca cola and then add to the dry ingredients along with the milk, eggs and vanilla. Gently combine before putting in a lightly greased cake tin. Bake at 180 degrees/ gas mark 4 for 40 mins or until a knife comes out clean. Cool on a tray.


For the frosting melt the coca cola with the butter and pour into the icing sugar. Add the cocoa and beat until smooth and thick, let it cool slightly and then spread over the cake.


I then put the cake in the fridge to let the icing set firm and fudgy!


Serve with cream or ice cream or by itself as its a super moist cake. Let me know if you try this recipe and how it turned out!
