Easy Fudge Cake

    55 minutes

    This very chocolate cake is easy to make with simple ingredients; I have included pecans because I like the texture but leave out if not a fan. Serve with cream or ice cream.

    This recipe is not supposed to be like normal fudge. It is supposed to be hard on top and goey in the middle. This taste awesome!  -  11 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I am NOT a baker, I don't have time and I'm not very good at it! But as I was visiting a friend for tea and the British shops have very liitle good pudding choice I decided to go for it! This was SO easy and SO quick to make and the end result was delicious! I did add a fudge icing (from this site also) and re-melted the whole thing in the oven before serving but ALL at the table raved about it and the pecan's gave it that something extra. Highly recommended for impressing friends with very little effort!  -  15 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was the most delicious chocolatey, fudgey cake we have ever eaten!! YUM!! I used a glass pan, and added about 25 minutes baking time, checking at 5 minute intervals.  -  19 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
