Fudge Loaf Cake with Pecans


I'm pretty sure that this happened to you at least once in your life while baking or cooking, you forget about ingredients and then you go crazy, today it happened to me. I was ready to make this cake, I measured everything then started by creaming the butter with sugar and just when I was about to add eggs I realized that I didn't had any! so then I had to put everything on hold and ran to the store. Sometimes I can  have my head up in the sky all day  be distracted and forget everything. Has this ever happened to you?

- 1/4 c. buttermilk
- 3/4 c. sour cream
- 1 c. powdered sugar
- 315 gr. chopped dark chocolate
- 1 c. chopped pecans

1. Put the applesauce loaf bread in the fridge for about 1 hour, then measure it and with the help of some toothpicks mark the point where you are going to slice the bread, first cut it in half and then each of them again in half.




2. In a medium pot at low heat melt butter with buttermilk then add chocolate and stir until it looks creamy, remove from heat and let it cool for about 10 minutes. Add sour cream and powdered sugar until it thickens. Cover the bottom layer with fudge frosting, top it with another layer of loaf bread and continue with fudge....

[ chocolate should look creamy and shiny before adding sugar ]


I added some chopped pecans on the second layer just because I like them

3. When you are done with the layers of bread and fudge cover the whole "cake" with fudge then fill your hand with chopped pecans and press them on the sides of the cake.



Finally cut a slice of this delicious cake and indulge

  15. Cor! That looks do good! thanks for your comment earlier on my blog, I can't wait to look around your recipes more. This has been the second not-so-great Martha recipe in as many weeks, I hope it's better next week, but i'm sure With done moderations it would have worked. Thanks again.

  21. es espectacular esta tarta, hay que ver cómo has reconvertido el bizcocho.
    Por cierto dices que no tienes por ahí harina de fuerza??? Digo yo que tendrá otro nombre, es la harina que utilizan los panaderos, pregunta a ver en un horno de panadero tradicional ;)

  23. Yum! That looks great. I'm pretty terrible at forgetting to put things in or have the right ingredients... sometimes it leads to more interesting dishes than I was going to make in the first place though!

  24. I hate when that happens! You think you have everything and then it turns out you're missing a key ingredient. This looks just perfect!

    1. the best thing is that you can buy a loaf bread and just make the frosting but I decided to make the bread :)

  28. This looks absolutely wonderful, Beti! Chocolate and nuts over cake is my idea of a dream dessert. And yes, that has happened to me too. I was about to make a soup recipe this past week and realized I didn't have onions! Turn off stove, off to store. Thankfully, there is one only 5 minutes away.
