How to make Chocolate Fudge Cake
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make this cake. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Large eggs: You’ll want 4, yolks and whites separated.
- Caster/granulated sugar
- Dark chocolate
- Unsalted butter
- Cocoa powder
- Cake flour: See my recipe notes below on how to make your own!
To make this chocolate fudge cake, start by beating the egg whites until frothy. Gradually add 1/4 cup of sugar and beat until stiff, glossy peaks form. Set aside.
Next, add the chocolate and butter to a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth. Add the cocoa powder and milk, and whisk until smooth and combined. Set aside
Whisk together the egg yolks and the rest of the sugar until combined. Add the chocolate mixture and whisk until completely combined.
Gradually whisk in the whipped egg whites until smooth and combined, then whisk in the cake flour.
Pour the mixture into a greased and lined 9×5-inch loaf pan. Tap the pan gently on the surface a few times to level out the mixture, and to pop any air bubbles.
Bake for 30 – 35 minutes or until the centre is no longer jiggly – just set. This makes the cake extra fudgy and dense.
Allow to cool completely in the pan in the fridge before slicing and serving. Dust with icing sugar, or serve warm with a scoop of ice cream!

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
