Chocolate Velvet Fudge Cake

This is the other recipe that I've tried using only cocoa powder but hit to the maximum of chocolate taste. It is really rich. Every bite actually just melts in your mouth, this was the feedback that I have got. It is definitely a keeper for me. I am gonna to bake this over again and again. It was really moist and flavorful. Would be great with some chocolate fudge toppings or ice-cream. =)

I have tried using the silicon Church mould (big) that I have bought. However, I didn't let it cool enough. Hence it "broke" when I unmould it. It needs to be cool completely and I only wait for 2 hours which is not good enough. Nevertheless, it was a satisfactory attempt.

Hope you will enjoy it too. =D
