Chocolate Fudge Cake Recipe (Tana Ramsay)

As mentioned in my review of I Love to Bake by Tana Ramsay everyone needs a few reliable recipes up their sleeve for cake sales, fundraisers or parties and this recipe is just that. The added bonus is that the cake base can also be made quickly in a food processor.

Tana’s Chocolate Fudge Cake is one of the highlights of her Chocolate chapter, with a light chocolate sponge and a light filling and icing to match. As it’s not too chocolatey this one is perfect for kids and grown-ups alike.

  12. Janice Papworth says:

    I’d turn straight to ‘Cakes and Cupcakes’ becuase not only are these a favourite with my family but as PTA chair, I find myself making a lot of cakes for sales and fetes and it would be great to have some new (impressive) ideas not that I’m competitive or anything…

    1. Brave lady Janice! I’m sure the book would help your task. Good luck.

  13. Katherine Aitken says:

    Although it shouldn’t really – I eat far too much as it is. Then again, doing something different with it would be a skill I have never tried before apart form the usual melting and use of cocoa powder.

    1. Good luck, I’m sure the chocolate chapter would challenge you…white chocolate profiteroles?

  14. Laura Virgoe says:

    Just love food & cookbooks so would love it all but if I HAVE to choose then my sweet tooth would win & I could have fun with the girls & ‘Biscuits & Traybakes’!

    1. Goood luck Laura! The girls would love that chapter.

  15. Boo Lewis says:

    It’s all about the biscuits and traybakes!

    1. Good luck! The traybakes are yummy too!

  16. Justine Bell says:

    Savoury pies and tarts. Im *just* getting into pastry and my family LOVE pie! I can hide all sorts inside a pie and my kids don’t even seem to notice….

    1. I’m slightly afraid of “getting into pies” despite what my family like! It’s bad enough with cake!! There are some yummy recipes in there though – good luck.

  17. Savoury Pies and Tarts – because I don’t make them enough! It’s all muffins and cupcakes really with me, I could do with being a bit more creative!

    1. Hi Jo, I know what you mean, I’m the same. Good luck!
