If chocolate fudge + chocolate cake got married, this Chocolate Fudge Cake would be their baby. It’ rich, dense, extra chocolatey – the ultimate treat! The main flavor component of this dessert comes from the cocoa powder, so use your favorite high quality cocoa powder. My current favorite is Guittard Cocoa Rouge (purchase here), it’s a red dutch-process cocoa powder. The color is gorgeous, it’s wonderful for dusting, the chocolate flavor is intense – it’s amazing.

  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • ¼ Cup All Purpose Flour

    Melt 1 stick of Butter in a sauce pan on low heat. Once the butter has melted, remove the pan from the heat and add ½ Cup Cocoa, 1 Cup of Sugar, ¼ Cup Flour, a Pinch of Salt and stir to combine everything.

    Coat your 4 – 4oz ramekins or 7 Hatrigo mini metal bowls well with butter and dust them with flour to coat & shake off any excess flour. If you’re using the silicone egg bites molds, just butter them. Pour the batter into the bowls about 80% full.

    Once the timer is up, do a quick release of the steam by switching the knob to venting. Once the pin drops, open the lid. Wait a minute before lifting the cakes out. Let them cool for about 10 minutes. Protect your hands since the bowls will still be warm, run a sharp pairing knife along the edge and flip the cake out onto a small plate (if you used the egg bites mold, no need to use a pairing knife, they should pop out easily). Dust with powdered sugar, serve with berries, whipped cream or ice cream. Enjoy!
