Very rich Chocolate Fudge Cake

h White & Dark chocolate icing



We love chocolate cake (who doesn't??) and I really like to try new recipes all the time.
This cake is one of the best Chocolate fudge Cake I've ever eaten or baked




I found the original recipe here, but I've made some changes

9' round pan

225g (1 cup) Soft butter
300g (1½ cups) white sugar
2 heaping teaspoons trimoline sugar (invert sugar)
4 eggs
½ teaspoon baking soda
200 ml cream - low fat
50 ml milk
280 g white flour
45 g cornstarch
1 cup chocolate chips
225 g baking chocolate 
1/3 cup chocolate syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Glazing
110 g white chocolate, chopped
½ cup chocolate chips
50 g butter



Melt the chocolate (in double boiler or carefully in the microwave) and let cool. Put a baking sheet on the bottom of the pan, grease and flour it with cocoa - bottom and sides of pan.Preheat oven to 150C (300F) degrees 
Mix flour and cornflour in a small bowl.Cream butter and  trimolie sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. Gradually add sugar and beat well at medium speed. Add eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition 
Add the melted chocolate, chocolate syrup and vanilla extract and mix well.
Dissolve the baking soda + milk + cream and stir well. It is important to take a large dish/container as it immediately doubles the volume. 
On a low speed add the flour mixture alternating with the cream mixture in 2-3 time, starting and ending with the flour mixture. Mix only until blended.
Stop the mixer, 
Add the chocolate chips and stir.
Transfer the batter into the pan and smooth the surface. Bake for 85-95 minutes -  until the cake is springy to the touch. Remove cake from the oven and immediately invert it onto a serving plate and cool completely



Glaze
Melt 25g butter and white chocolate (in a double boiler or carefully in the microwave) until smooth.
Drizzle on the cake (I put baking/wax paper all around in order to keep the serving plate clean)
Melt the rest of the butter
 (25g) with the chocolate chips - in the same way, and drizzle on top and in between white-chocolate drizzle




¯ I actually made the cake "Parve", so Instead of using butter, I used butter-flavored margarine, vanilla-flavored soy milk and non-dairy milk, Believe me this cake turned out delicious!

¯ You can warm it in the microwave for a few seconds and,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, YUMMY !!!

The funny thing is that I don't like chocolate as is, but when it come to cookies and cakes - chocolate, chocolate and chocolate
