{Lazy} Chocolate Cherry Fudge Cake

A chocolate cherry fudge cake bombed my house today.

That’s why I’m covered in the world’s most luscious chocolate frosting. I swear it’s not because I stuck my whole body in the pan. I swear.

This cake bomb happened to sandwich itself right between my main man’s birthday (heyo, that’s today!) and V-V-Valentine’s day, which, pssst, is tomorrow.

That’s two days in a row of celebrating my favorite guy, the one who knows everything, fixes everything, and eats everything.

Man eating ice cream.

You can see why I love this man.

One thing you should know. Conferences are still.going.

It’s honestly really awesome to meet with my students’ families. And I honestly really need 12 White Chocolate Mochas to keep my eyelids halfway open once the clock strikes 7pm.

I love “coffee”.

But the beauty of conferences is that they give me an excuse to be lazy. As if I really needed an excuse.

And I mean that in the best way possible because this cake is dee-liciously lazy.

If I was going to snuggle up inside of a cake, it would be this one.

Mostly because I want that frosting to be all over my life, forever and ever, amen.

This chocolate cherry fudge cake is SUPER easy to make and has the most amazing homemade fudge frosting. Mmmmmmm so good!

  1. Mix first four ingredients and pour into a greased cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
  2. Bring sugar, butter, and milk to a boil in a saucepan. Boil for 1 minute. Stir in chocolate chips and continue stirring until melted. Frost cake immediately.


Two variations:

Make this in individual sized ramekins. Adjust baking time to about 15 minutes, or until top springs back when touched.

Cut cake or mini-cakes in half, make a little extra frosting (1.5x), and add a layer of frosting in between the layers of cake. I did this with my ramekin cakes and the large cake – it was actually really easy to do.
