Ultimate Fudge Cake

May 30, 2009

I went for a fudge cake hands-on workshop at Shermay’s today, with my all-time favorite pastry chef instructor Joycelyn.

The class was kinda pricey, but we did each get to make a whole cake on our own, with lots of fabulous Valrhona chocolate provided. So it was good fun. And I always learn a lot when Joycelyn teaches because she’s incredibly knowledgeable about her craft.

As you can see, my cake wasn’t super even, but the sensei did say that the kind of icing we made today (more viscous and with a dull sheen) would give the cake a more homemade feel. And when I looked around I saw that most of our cakes looked fairly similar, so I’m not feeling too bad about it =)

More importantly, the cake is DELICIOUS. Very rich and fudgey and still expensive-tasting because of the fantastic chocolate. (Investing in high-grade chocolate goes a long way! If you’re new to my blog, see my post on Pierre Hermé World Peace Chocolate Chip Cookies.)

Now I have a whole lovely fudge cake in my refrigerator… Who to feed….

    Hi ‘
    Your ultimate chocolate cake fudge looks delicious. Is there any chance that you are going to share the recipe.

    Hi Bin, I wish I could! But all her recipes are copyrighted.

    I did find a reasonably close substitute recipe on though. Click on this link. Key differences would be that this recipe uses oil instead of butter, and doesn’t include an extra burst of chocolate through the use of chocolate chips.

    Still, it should probably turn out quite nice. Important to use good high grade chocolate (i.e. Valrhona) – that makes every bit of difference, really. And buttermilk instead of regular milk.
