Fudge Cake with Cherries & Pecans

For me this totally came out as a gooey butter cake! It wasn't heavy on the chocolate flavor, but was just sinfully gooey and rich - but crisped all the way around the tops and edges! It would be the perfect cake to serve warm scooped into a bowl and smothered with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

I chose to omit the nuts since I have no fans of them in my house. Sigh. They would have been a lovely addition for some crunch since everything else is so soft with this cake! 

Fudge Cake with Cherries

1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 ounces milk or unsweetened chocolate
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1/2 cup dried cherries, halved (or rough chopped)
Confectioner's sugar for dusting (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and spray an 8" square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan over low heat combine the butter, chocolate, and sugar and stir regularly until mixture melts together and is smooth. Keep heat very low.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the sifted flour, baking powder, and salt until blended in (it will make a thick doughy batter).
  4. Stir in the eggs and vanilla until blended in. Batter will be sticky and smooth (it reminded me of loose caramel at this stage).
  5. Stir in the chopped cherries and nuts if using, and scrape batter into the prepared baking dish.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes until edges appear dry and are beginning to pull away from the sides. The middle, when tested with a toothpick, should be mostly clean (no wet batter, but sticky crumbs are ok).
  7. Cool, dust with confectioner's sugar if you'd like and serve either scooped straight out into bowls with ice cream, or cut into pieces. My cake was very sticky and soft, so make sure you use something like a metal spatula to carefully remove slices! 


  1. This looks buttery and gooey. Rebekah. For some reason I didn't "see" this option in the list. I guess I stopped reading at blackberry. But I will give it a try.

  2. My goodness but we are always on the same page. Your cake is lovely Rebekah.

  3. Great minds! It definitely was a gooey cake!

  4. Sounds great - chocolate, cherries, gooey, yum!

  5. I love an ooey gooey butter and this is definitely worth the caloric splurge.

  6. The Programming Homework Help service was worth more than every penny I paid for it. Thanks a bunch for giving me their time and dedication. I loved every bit of the experience I had with one of the Java Homework Help experts, who turned out to be very interactive and professional in the way she handled me and my assignment. The lady was experienced and polite. Thanks, too, for the affordable prices and easy payment process. I'll come again for more.

  7. This Statistics Assignment Help provider has been completing my assignments and helping me understand them at the same time. That is, as soon as he submits the assignment's solutions, he commits himself to explain each of them to me on a video call. I always use this service to achieve perfect presentations and understand more concepts for future use in the examinations. Besides, the Statistics Homework Help specialist is a good advisor. He's generous with sharing his experience with students.

  8. Getting the perfectMatlab homework help solver has always been a challenge because very few Matlab assignments help experts understand all the concepts of Matlab. However, for the time they have been tackling my communications system assignment, they have given me new hope because they may not have one person working on all Matlab topics but they have different tutors in one pool. That is the main reason why I am so comfortable working with them.

  9. I am completely tired. I have just arrived from work only to realize that my economics assignment is due tomorrow. I am not in a position to complete it tonight, and therefore, I am requesting your Economics assignment help. I believe with theEconomics homework help experience, they will help me get better grades. I am proceeding to submit the assignment on your website.

  10. Java isn't my cup of tea, but I'm confident that the Programming Assignment Help services are going to make a difference. I'm waiting for their solutions for the firstC++ Homework Help order that I've just sent. I believe that they're going to help me pass and understand some of the major concepts of the programming language.

  11. Statistics became harder than I thought before I joined the university. To make it worse, my lecturer wasn't the type of person that explains concepts deeply. So it was everyone for himself. Then I started the hunt for where I could getStatistics Homework Help online and bumped into statisticshomeworkhelper.com. I considered myself lucky to meet this trustworthy expert at my first attempt. He's a one-of-a-kindR Homework Help specialist.

  12. Looking for a master’s levelMatlab homework help solver. I am starting my image processing project but I don’t have time for it. I want aMatlab assignment help expert who will work on it from start to finish. Our professors like it worked step by step so that they can check and return comments for corrections. The tutor I want will be receiving the comments, correcting them, and then returning them to the professor. Once they are corrected and given a go-ahead to continue the tutor will then go ahead to the next chapter until the project is completed. Let me know whether they have someone who can do that.

  13. How can I be sure that they will complete my assignment on time? I have fallen into the hands of fakeEconomics assignment help experts so many times. I am now looking for a genuineEconomics homework help expert who is ready to partner with me for the next 2 years. I would appreciate it if you send me their samples to see the quality of your work
