Baked Fudge

Baked fudge is one of those desserts that really satisfies your sweet tooth. The ingredients are basic, and the only difficult part of this recipe is waiting for it to bake in the oven before devouring it.

It has a crunch on the top and remains gooey and delicious underneath. This is what warm brownie batter served in perfectly proportioned cups would taste like. It just gets even better when you add a little ice cream or whipped cream on top. Of course this could just be eaten with a glass of cold milk on the side. One of the above options is basically required to get through the chocolate deliciousness of this fudge.

Start out by whipping one egg in a medium size bowl. Then add in half a cup of sugar and make sure it all gets combined.

Then, add in 1 tbsp of cocoa powder and 1tbps of flour to the mix. Add in 1/4 cup of melted butter as well. Then whisk it all up until it forms a smooth mixture with all the items combined.

I find this recipe fills four of my ramekin cups perfectly. You want the mixture to come up about half way in whatever baked cups/pan you decide to use. I just prefer these so you can have easily proportioned containers (which I then eat two of, of course).

Place the ramekins in a baking pan and fill the pan with water so that the water comes half way up the sides of the cups. You can use whatever pan size or shape you would like, just be sure to fill the water half way up the side of the cups. Then place the pan with the cups inside into the oven set at 325 degrees for 40 minutes.

This will be a long 40 minutes, but believe me when I say that it is worth it.

Recipe Adapted from Pioneer Woman

1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon flour
1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Whisk one egg in a medium size bowl until light colored then add 1/2 cup sugar. Mix until fully incorporated. Then add the cocoa powder, flour and melted butter to the bowl. Mix until combined. Place equal amounts of the mixture into four small ramekin cups. The mixture should fill about half the cup. Place the cups into a baking pan and fill the baking pan with water until the water comes half way up the side of the ramekins. Place the baking pan into the oven and bake for 40 minutes. Enjoy!


  1. I am pretty much a disaster in the kitchen, but this looks like something I might be able to handle. Bookmarked.

  2. Great blog, love the photography and commentary.

    Your recipes are pretty solid.

    I am surprised by one thing. For someone that loves chocolate you don't have any postings about Nutella.

  3. I love eating cookie dough, cake batter. . . and brownie batter. This seems like the perfect dessert for me!
