Boiled Chocolate Cake

A boiled chocolate cake? I know, boiling is not the first way you’d think to cook a cake, but you have to try this method. This is no average chocolate cake! The recipe started as an experiment a few years ago, but boiling all the liquid ingredients for the cake before incorporating the rest is now my go-to chocolate cake method, as it truly makes for a fudgy, moist and delicious cake. Boiled chocolate cakes are more popular in Australia, but I think the world needs to know! If, like me, your bug-bear with chocolate cake is a dried out, crumbly texture, this is the perfect recipe for a chocolate cake that turns out moist every time.

Achieving a rich and intense flavour, you can choose to keep the cake as-is, or top it with the creamy chocolate topping I include in the recipe, for more of a dessert. Served warm or cold (it even works as a dinner party dessert, with a scoop of ice cream on the side), this is a guaranteed crowd pleaser for any and all chocolate lovers out there!

Baking time may vary from oven to oven. To make sure your cake is baked, insert a clean knife deep into it. If it comes out without any cake batter on it, your cake is ready.
