Five Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Cake

    40 minutes

    Not quite a fudge cake yet not quite a brownie; it is a little bit of both. Amazing that such a great tasting cake only has five ingredients.

    I chose this recipe as it looked easy to make with my class of 4-year-olds. It was very easy to make, and we made it as individual cupcakes so they could all decorate their own. However, the butter proportion seems to be way higher than it should be. During baking all the fat soaked into the cake cases, so much so that the cases burned, and the baking sheet the cases were placed on was swimming with melted butter. Overall though, they tasted pretty good :-) I don't bake cakes very often, would it still work if the butter was reduced?  -  01 Feb 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
