G's Chocolate Fudge Cake


Another great recipe courtesy of my baking partner G. True Chocolate indulgence - my greatest weakness as chocoholic. Couldn't help having it even at 1am and another piece as breakfast the next morning!


You may need two same baking pan to bake this - round or square as you like . I like it sandwiched with a layer of chocolate fudge. If you think I am overdoing it, just bake one without separating into 2 pans.


So moist and tasty with occasional crunch of almonds. The frosting just complete the cake! Will definitely making it soon!

Hope you love it too!
