Chocolate Fudge Cake | Snap a Bite

“No other chocolate cake will ever again move you the way it did before." I’ll have to take that back. Something happened since then. No, I wasn’t indoctrinated at a re-education camp, I learned about the existence of chocolate fudge. More like chocolate infusion!

Chocolate Fudge Cake | Snap a Bite

Is your chocolate cake lacking in the kick department? No problem, fudge it up. It will be our little secret. It won’t show up on blood tests, I’m almost sure.

Holiday season, love and peace for all on earth. That’s fine, but add this recipe to your arsenal (chocolate TNT, cherry bombs), just in case. Fighting’s only dirty when it doesn’t taste this good. No (social) conflict that can’t be solved with these weapons of mass mediation. No fight is bigger than good cake.

Just a warning, the unit converter does not work. If using US units you will need to do your own math.
Natasha  •  2/19/2014 9:30:31 PM
If I'm not mistaken, the UK dry ingredients are by weight and the US are by volume. So, it may appear that the converter isn't working.n For example, the recipe calls for 240 gr flour and 185 gr confectionars' sugar for UK. However, it says 2 cups for each in the US. This is because 2 cups of each ingredient weight different amounts.

Thanks for your feedback Rachael and Natasha.
Like Natasha said, normally the units should be correct. I started from a US recipe and converted it to metric units after which I entered each ingredient seperately into this post with the correct amount and unit.
If however something does seem incorrect, could you please point out which ingredient it is :) Thanks!
