Description

A rich and indulgent chocolate cake with a layer of hot fudge pudding sauce underneath made in just 45 minutes!


Ingredients

Cake:

  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour (195g)
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar (275g) - can be reduced to 1 cup if you don't want the cake to be too sweet
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (100g)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (120g) - use 1/2 cup milk + 1/2 tbsp vinegar to make your own
  • 1/4 cup boiling water (60g)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder (33g)
  • 1 tsp instant coffee

Hot Fudge Pudding:

  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar (110g)
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar (100g)
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water (360g)

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350F (conventional) and prepare a 7x11 or 9x9" baking dish with some butter (I recommend ceramic so you can serve the cake in the same dish)
  • Combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a bowl, getting rid of any lumps
  • Add the eggs, oil and buttermilk, and use a hand whisk to combine the ingredients
  • In a separate bowl, pour the boiling water on top of the cocoa powder and instant coffee, and whisk until smooth and shiny
  • Add the cocoa powder mixture to the remaining cake batter and gently fold until combined
  • Pour the batter in the prepared baking dish
  • For the fudge sauce, mix the sugars and cocoa powder and get rid of any lumps. Sprinkle over the cake batter inside the baking dish
  • Gently pour over the boiling water on top of the cake batter, being careful and spreading it evenly
  • Place the cake in the oven and bake for ~30-35 min depending on the size of your pan. You want the cake to look firm and cooked on the top, but it should be fudgy and gooey on the bottom - it is better to underbake than overbake it
  • Serve the cake while still hot with some vanilla ice cream, and enjoy!
