Chocolate Fudge Cake

During a conversation with some friends, one of them mentioned about that famous Steam Chocolate Cake that was shared by Dralion many years ago.  Instead of steam, we wanted to try a baked version.

Thus, I consulted Dralion and she shared this baked version with me.  

Initially I was quite concern about the amount of liquid in this recipe but all turned out well.


Findings: The cake is moist and yet light and with good quality cocoa powder, this cake turned out really chocolaty and yummy.

Thanks A for sharing this wonderful recipe.  This might be another famous one that you shared for the steam chocolate cake back in 2006!

What you need:

300g plain flour
100g cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda (I will reduce this to ½ tsp)

3 large eggs
360g castor sugar (I will reduce this to 300g)
1½ tsp vanilla extract

250ml evaporated milk
250ml corn oil
2 tbsp condensed milk

250ml boiling water

Method:

Preheat oven to 175°C.  Lined and greased a 8” square pan.  Half recipe will be 7”.

Sift plain flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda together.  Set aside.

Whisk eggs, castor sugar and vanilla extract on high speed until double in volume.

On low speed, add in evaporated milk, corn oil and condensed milk to the egg mixture, mix until well combined.

Add in flour mixture and whisk to combined.

Lastly pour in the boiling water and whisk until smooth. 

Pour batter pan and bake on the lowest rack for 40 – 1 hour. 

Cool cake in pan for 10 mins before transferring to cooling rack.


Cheers!

    1. Sorry for the delay as I was away. Yes you can replace evaporated milk with milk. As for the boiling water, it forms part of the recipe's liquid component.

    1. Hi Cindi, I remembered you. Yes Dralion and I had been in contact and became really good friends. I cannot access KC due to password issues. And yes that Steam Chocolate Fudge cake had since been circulating by via bloggers. I really hope no one forgets that Dralion was the one who shared this awesome recipe.

    1. Hi Ling, it will not as the eggs already have other ingredients incorporated to it.
