Moist Chocolate Fudge Loaf Cake Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking soda sifted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 Cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 Cup cocoa powder
  • 1 Cup hot water
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 3/4 Cup All-purpose cream


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease 6.5x3.5x2 inch loaf pans and line with baking paper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Make a well and add eggs, oil, and vanilla. Whisk until just mixed. (Do not overmix.)
  • In a small bowl or measuring jug, dissolve cocoa powder in hot water then add to batter. Stir until just combined and no lumps are visible.
  • Pour batter into the prepared loaf pans. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few crumbs. Cool chocolate loaves on a wire rack.
  • Meanwhile, make the chocolate fudge topping: chop up the chocolates to tiny pieces and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Add cream. Microwave in 10 up to 20-second bursts at a time until the chocolate is almost melted. Remove from the oven. Let sit for 5 minutes before stirring to combine.
  • Pour chocolate fudge over the chocolate loaves and spread evenly. Chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours to firm up the fudge. Slice and serve.
