I have been making this recipe since it appeared in the May/June 1998 issue of Quick Cooking. The original recipe that I have cut out from the magazine only calls for 1/2 cup of butter. However, I have cut it back even from that and use only 6 Tbsp of butter with the 1 cup of chocolate chips and it is still more than enough.
As the recipe states, bake until the middle springs back; I will add do not judge by sticking a toothpick in the middle. If you wait until a toothpick comes out clean, it will be too dry. You want it to be fudgey, and the toothpick will still be a little gooey at that point.
This is super easy, looks great, and tastes decadent. Try this one!
use only 1/2 cup butter, softened
I was skeptical that the recipe would taste original and homemade with so few ingredients, but it was delicious!! It looks gorgeous when you serve it and it tastes great. I took the other reviewer's suggestion to cut the butter in half - a great idea as the chocolate still spreads easily and it cuts out umpteen grams of fat. Thanks TOH!
Pompilia,as a suggestion, spray cake pan with cooking spray and the cut out a circle of parchment paper or waxed paper to fit in the bottom of your cake pan. Just slide a knife around the sides and it should come out clean as a whistle.
We found that the frosting tasted like butter and like it much better when the butter was cut in half. I used just one cube of butter and one cup of chocolate chips. Other than that, it is delicious!
