Chocolate Fudge Cake

My son loves this cake. It's an 8" square cake, and we think it's best served warm, with the chocolate chips still soft on the top. It is -very- fudge-y and almost demands to be served with a glass of milk. Or vanilla ice cream on the side.

This recipe does not double well - the chocolate chips sink into the batter if you try to make a double batch in an 11" x 13" pan. If I need to make enough for a double batch, I make two cakes.

Chocolate Fudge Cake

1/3 cup butter (5-1/3 tablespoons)
1 cup sugar
½ tsp vanilla
2 ounces baking chocolate, melted
1 egg
1-1/4 cups flour
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
¾ cup water
½ cup chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Grease 8 x 8 inch square baking pan.
  3. Cream butter and sugar together.
  4. Blend in vanilla and cooled chocolate.
  5. Add egg, beating well
  6. Mix together flour, soda and salt, add to creamed mixture alternately with water.
  7. Spread in greased pan.
  8. Sprinkle with chocolate pieces
  9. Bake at 350 about 30 minutes or until cake springs back when touched in center.
  10. Cool in pan.

Looks yummy! Here's a secret I learned about chocolate chips, if you toss the chips with a little flour before adding them in, they will not sink to the bottom. Hope that helps.
