Chocolate Fudge Cakes for Two

I love a quick and easy dessert that has the perfect serving size. This Chocolate Fudge Cake for Two recipe is perfect for an intimate dinner for two, any time of year. It’s perfect for your Valentine’s Day Dinner planning and straight forward enough for the guys to make.
The fudgy chocolate center is not too molten, but still has the right amount of gooey-ness that all chocolate lovers crave!
Perfect little individual Fudgy Cakes topped with sweeten whipped cream. It's just the right amount of chocolate goodness!

How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day this year? Are you having a quiet night in? Going out on the town? It is a Saturday night after all. Getting a sitter and enjoying a dinner that doesn’t include anything fried? Or is the whole family involved in the day?

This year, I’ve asked my husband to make reservations for three. He’s going to take his girls out for a special treat. I’ve left the option open for breakfast or lunch if he prefers. Frankly, I think that would be a bit better for a 9 year old anyway. A little more relaxed.

I’m looking forward to Valentine’s Day this year. If you haven’t noticed, I haven’t jumped on the crazy Valentine train this year with my treats. This year is a little more relaxed while I enjoy the process of just baking. I think that I sometimes get too into the holiday a month ahead because of the blog, but then by the time the actual day arrives, I’m so over it and want nothing to do with it.
I hope to maintain this thought process throughout the year.
I bet this chocolate fudge cake will satisfy your sweet tooth! Bake these up while eating dinner and then enjoy while warm.

Of course, these are also perfect to make for the kids if they are craving a dessert but you don’t want to make a large batch of something.

Chocolate Fudge Cakes for Two. Make them both for yourself or share with someone special. I'm partial to sharing.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 ounces chocolate bar, bittersweet 60% is best (divided)
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons lightly beaten egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • Ice Cream or Whipped Cream Topping


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour the ramekins and place them on a cookie sheet.
  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
  3. Chop two ounces of the chocolate and melt it with the milk in the microwave. Use 70% power for 30 second intervals and stir between heating. You don’t want to burn your chocolate. The mixture should be smooth. Stir in the sugar until it’s dissolved. Let it sit for 5 minutes to cool.
  4. Add in the oil, egg, and vanilla into the melted chocolate and whisk until it’s combined. Gradually add in the flour mixture.
  5. Divide the batter between the two ramekins. Be sure to get the air bubbles out by tapping them on the counter a few times. Break your remaining ounce of chocolate in half and add it to the center of each ramekin. Press it gently into the batter until it’s covered and then bake for 15 minutes. The tops should be firm and the center will be soft.
  6. Let the cakes cool for a few minutes while you get the ice cream or whipped cream. Top as desired and enjoy!
  7. This recipe can be doubled to make dessert for a family of 4.
