Fudgy Chocolate Slice


Fudgy Chocolate Slice

The first day of half term has been and gone and the kids are already eating me out of house and home! I needed to refill the cake tin quickly and these fudgy chocolate slices were perfect for the job.

The cake is made in a very unauthentic manner whereby you melt butter and cocoa on the hob with some boiling water then stir through the dry ingredients, an egg and some milk. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes then top with a fudgy frosting (also made using the melting method). It really does taste amazing and is so easy and quick to make.
