Almost the best thing about this recipe is that it is made in one bowl – it is also so easy to put together you will love making it over and over again! And here is a tip that will make this cake a delicatessen item! Cream 8 oz of cream cheese with 1/4 cup of icing sugar, blend in 2 squares of melter chocolate squares and fold in 1 cup of whipping cream. When your cake is cooled, slice it in the middle and fill with all of the cream cheese cheese filling. If you use fresh strawberries on each slice as you serve it, it will be a sure hit!
One Bowl Fudge Cake:
1-3/4 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of shortening
3/4 cup of milk
2 squares of unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
Stir first 5 ingredients together in a large bowl of electric mixer. Add shortening (at room temperature). eggs and 1/2 cup of milk. Mix on low speed with electric mixer for about 2 minutes. Scrape sides of the bowl often during mixing. Add cooled melted chocolate, vanilla and remaining milk, beat 2 mote minutes on same speed. Pour into greased and floured 9″ square cake pan. Bake in a moderate oven (350F) for 35 – 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Frost as desired.
This better can be used to make fudge cupcakes – place cupcake paper cups into a muffin pan and fill each about 3/4 full with the batter. Bake at 460F for about 15 – 20 minutes. It will make about 1-1/2 dozen of medium size cupcakes.
