Friday, May 17, 2019 @ 12:05 AM

Posted by J.C. Taggart

Made with four different types of chocolate, this is definitely a “decadent” dessert!

Decadent Fudge Cake


1 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
4 large eggs, room temperature
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
8 ounces German sweet chocolate, melted
1 cup chocolate syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/4 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips, divided
4 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon shortening, divided


~Cream butter in a large bowl. Gradually mix in sugar. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition.

~Combine buttermilk and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with flour, beginning and ending with flour. Add melted chocolate, chocolate syrup and vanilla. Stir in one cup of miniature chocolate chips.

~Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 325° for one hour and 15 minutes (or until a toothpick comes out clean). Immediately invert cake onto a serving plate; cool completely.

~Meanwhile, in a microwave, melt white chocolate and two tablespoons shortening; stir until smooth. Cool slightly; drizzle over cake. Melt remaining chips and shortening in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from the heat; cool slightly. Drizzle over white chocolate.
