I realize by now that I cannot keep saying that EVERY cake is my favorite cake; so let’s just say this Chocolate Fudge Blackout Cake is “one of” my favorite cakes!
The thing about it though, is that it is not too chocolatey (if that is even a real thing??) but some people (yeah you know the types) will say “Oh no, too much chocolate for me”
Maybe it’s the hard core chocolate lover in me, but I do not find that to be the case here.
I chalk it up to the lightness of the cake and the creaminess of the fudge icing that makes you want to have another piece!
Well whatever it is~ trust me, you are going to want to have another piece!
You can use whatever pan size you like, just be sure to fill the batter half way and you will get beautiful layers every time!
You will notice that the fudge recipe includes to versions since so many people were asking for my original Fudge Icing Recipe which is way more expensive than the one I use here, and way less sweet too. So feel free to use whatever version you like best.
Alright enough blabbing, this is a building on recipes project as usual when it comes to making layer cakes, so be sure to have your 2 recipes prepared in advance and then you will see how easy it is to build a Chocolate Fudge Blackout Cake in no time at all!
I baked my cakes in 3-7" pans but you can follow the recipe and bake in 2-8" pans it is your preference
