My favorite way to dress this Chocolate Pudding Fudge Cake is by topping it with my Dark Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. What’s better than a chocolate cake other than a chocolate cake topped with a thick layer of chocolate frosting? If you said nothing, you’d be correct! This recipe is also the base for my Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake, proof you can dress this cake up as over the top as you’d like but it’s just as delicious with a simple shower of powdered sugar as well. It’s completely versatile.
