Chocolate Fudge Cake
I've been wanting to recreate what to me is the perfect Chocolate Fudge Cake for several years. The original of this cake came from a baker in The Farm Gate Cafe in Midleton, County Cork. After trying multiple recipes that didn't cut it, my Mum found the baker (she runs a shop in Midleton now) and asked for the recipe. This is that recipe!

All above measurements are fairly elastic as the recipe is very forgiving. Age shown by ignorance of metric measures!
