Famous Chocolate Fudge Cake

I've always been a fan of June's Cake Station and Lana's chocolate cake. They are light, moist and chocolatey without being overly sweet. I don't exactly have a sweet tooth to begin with but I do adore an occasional slice of melt-in-your-mouth cocoa divineness.

This is a recipe that I've experimented and adjusted. Just in case you wonder, the sugar content has been reduced significantly to match my family's palate. If you prefer something a little sweeter, you can always increase the amount of icing sugar in the frosting. Don't say I didn't warn you, this is seriously addictive.

Ingredients (Chocolate Cake):

180g plain flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder (non-sweetened)
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
150g sugar
2 eggs
120ml canola oil (yes this is correct, oil.)
150ml milk
2 tbsp golden syrup (available in all leading supermarkets)


Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and cocoa powder into a mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, beat eggs and add in sugar and golden syrup. Whisk in the oil and milk till smooth. Fold in the dry goods that have been sifted earlier.

Grease your cake tin and line with baking sheet. Pour in the cake mixture and bake on 180 degrees celsius for 30 minutes or until a skewer is clear when inserted into the middle of the cake.

Ingredients (Chocolate Frosting):

100g butter
1 cup icing sugar
1 tbsp cocoa powder


Cream the butter till soft and add in the icing sugar and cocoa powder. If the frosting is a little too dry, add in 2 tbsp of milk and mix evenly. Spread the frosting on top of the baked chocolate cake and chill in the refrigerator before serving.
