I don’t know about you, but I love chocolate fudge cake. One look at this scrumptious layer cake makes my mouth water. Chocolate lovers will scoop this up pretty quick so make sure you grab a piece before it’s all gone.

2 cups sifted cake flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

2/3 cup butter, softened

Grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans.

Tear off a big sheet of wax paper and set on kitchen counter. Using a sifter, sift the flour baking powder, baking soda onto the wax paper.

In a saucepan or double boiler, combine the chocolate, water and 1/4 cup of sugar; cook over low heat while stirring constantly. When chocolate is thick and smooth, transfer to another bowl. Chill chocolate in a pan of ice water; stir occasionally. Add vanilla to chocolate.

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until nice and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Blend in the chilled chocolate.

Add in the sifted flour mixture, alternating with the buttermilk – beat batter thoroughly after each addition, until nice and smooth. Pour the cake batter into cake pans.
