This one would have been really good if I could have gotten it to finish cooking. I cooked it for 40 minutes longer than the recipe called for and the center turned out still slightly raw and the edges were hard. I will try it again using a larger dish than the recipe called for or maybe at a higher temp. Read More

I am NOT a baker I don't have time and I'm not very good at it! But as I was visiting a friend for tea and the British shops have very liitle good pudding choice I decided to go for it! This was SO easy and SO quick to make and the end result was delicious! I did add a fudge icing (from this site also) and re-melted the whole thing in the oven before serving but ALL at the table raved about it and the pecan's gave it that something extra. Highly recommended for impressing friends with very little effort! Read More

A precious tea room in our town serves a baked fudge and I've tried to find a similar recipe. This is it! It is the perfect blend of gooey fudge middle with a crust on top. Add whip cream and you have a wonderful dessert. Thanks. Read More

The cooking time is really off as written. This came out almost like a Lava Cake not a Fudge Cake. I don't think I will make this again but if I do I will follow the advise of another reviewer bake it 45 minutes cover with foil and bake another 15 minutes. Read More
