Feast your eyes on this guys! An indulgent chocolate fudge cake, iced and served with figs! I haven’t made a proper chocolate cake in ages (surprisingly, as chocolate is one of my favourite foods) so I have been playing around with recipes and I think I have landed on a winner!
- 200g self-raising whole meal flour
- 50g brown sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 125g dark chocolate
- 2tbsp coconut oil
- 4 tbsp water
- 2 eggs
- 200g softened butter
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 100ml oat milk

Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Sieve the flour and bicarbonate of soda together in a large bowl. Place the dark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave, for 30 seconds or until melted. Add the oil, water, milk, eggs, butter and vanilla to the melted chocolate and stir until smooth.
Make a well in the middle of the flour and then pour in half the chocolate mix. Stir well, then add the other half and mix till smooth. Add a little extra water if you want it less ‘fudge’.
Pour the mixture into a prepared cake tin (grease with coconut oil or line with baking paper) and bake for 25 minutes or until a skewer to the centre comes out clean.
Chill completely and cover with icing!
Icing – gradually mix water into 200g of icing sugar, until you achieve desired consistency. Make sure the cake is completely cool before icing!
Serve with some fresh figs or berries!
