  • Chocolate cake recipes to indulge in, including chocolate fudge cake, glossy chocolate and almond torte and Malteser cake

    Chocolate cake recipes are the ultimate indulgence, from a classic chocolate fudge cake to a chocolate twist on a Victoria sponge cake recipe, these cakes are a hit at every occasion.

    Everyone loves chocolate cake and there is something so decadent about a chocolate cake made well – whether it’s a towering layer cake or an easy chocolate tray bake to share.

    Our favourites include Malteser cake with malted chocolate frosting to match and a sticky mocha cake, which is dense and squidgy – more of a dessert than a cake in some ways. The towering chocolate ombre cake goes from light to dark in a tall cake that looks impressive inside and out.

    Chocolate and honeycomb come together in another cake for that crunchy, sticky combination that works so well.

    And of course, there’s a cake that everyone adores – the classic chocolate fudge cake, which is so easy to make and a real crowd pleaser. You can’t go wrong with this recipe. If you want to take chocolate fudge cake to the next level, try adding a pinch of salt to the chocolate ganache for a salted chocolate version that’s really on trend.

    Got a special diet? Our chocolate orange cake is gluten free and dairy free, making a rich chocolate cake that everyone can enjoy. There’s also a gluten free and dairy free Black Forest torte if you’d like another option, but both are deliciously indulgent.

    Don’t have time to make a full-on cake? Make a no bake chocolate tart, or pick the Nutella cheesecake, made more grown-up with the addition of dark chocolate and chopped nuts.

    This chocolate truffle torte recipe (pictured) is so rich it’s more of a dessert than a cake, but it’s divine! The glossy ganache is very impressive.
