Fabulous Fudge Chocolate Cake
Wow, just wow!!! I am an avid dessert maker & this was just what I was looking for!! It was dense , but not too dense, moist & fudgey! What I won't do again is use parchment paper to line the pans (I did two rounds) as it made the sides dent in on parts around the cake. I could have cut the edges, but my 12 year old daughter told me not to. The icing I used was horrible (Fudgey icing on this site) -it was more like a thick glaze!! The deliciousness of the cake itself saved the day!! Try it exactly as is, you won't regret it!!

Caroline's Chocolate Fudge Frosting
I am an avid dessert maker, & this icing was not good. I have made icing many many times & it has never turned out like this. I should have known when it called for melted butter, that it wouldn't be fluffy & delicious. It was runny, even after refrigerating a little, so it was basically a thick glaze. It wasn't very chocolatey, even though I used more chocolate than called for. In fact, I added Nesquik to try & make it chocolatey, but it didn't work. It's a shame too, as the cake recipe I made was absolutely delicious! I believe it's called "Fabulous Fudge Cake" Try it, it's so good! Moist, rich & dense, but not too dense! I suggest using a different icing. I like the chocolate buttercream from the Brown Eyed Baker!! It turns out nice & fluffy!!

Flourless Chocolate Cake I
I have been baking for about 30 years & I thought this was a good recipe. There is no need for a water bath. Put parchment paper sprayed with Pam in the bottom of a spring form pan. You really don't need to cut it to fit, but the edges with come out sort of scalloped. I used a bag of Nestor's chocolate chips @ about 3 ounces of bittersweet cocoa/oil, as I was out of chips. The only difficult thing about this recipe, is the need for extra hands/bowls. I left 6 eggs lightly beaten out on the counter while I made the other stuff and I microwaved the chocolate with no issues. It might help to use room temperature butter-because the hot sugar cools off a bit & might not melt your butter all the way through. I also substituted Kahlua for the water. I baked it for about 45 mins-perfect. It is very rich-the edges have an ever slight crisp while it's still warm & the whipped mouser texture as you bite into it. We are going to try it cold as well.
