About this recipe: It is not quite a fudge and not quite a brownie but this chocolate cake has a little bit of both. It will appeal to both young and old. Keep it wrapped in baking parchment in a tin box and it will stay fresh for 2 days. Heavenly with ice cream, whipped cream or on its own.
I chose this recipe as it looked easy to make with my class of 4-year-olds. It was very easy to make, and we made it as individual cupcakes so they could all decorate their own. However, the butter proportion seems to be way higher than it should be. During baking all the fat soaked into the cake cases, so much so that the cases burned, and the baking sheet the cases were placed on was swimming with melted butter. Overall though, they tasted pretty good :-) I don't bake cakes very often, would it still work if the butter was reduced? - 01 Feb 2013
