Baker’s Chocolate Wellesley fudge cake
Why that old-fashioned “just right” flavor depends on Baker’s Chocolate!
The double chocolate richness of Wellesley fudge cake is a favorite from way back — practically irresistible when you make it, as your grandmother doubtless did, with Baker’s Chocolate.
For, though we cook today by surer, simpler recipes, real chocolate flavor at its best is the same old-time one that Baker’s gives. For Baker’s is what it has been since 1780 — pure chocolate. Just the essence and richness of choice cocoa beans, with all the luscious cocoa butter retained, and nothing whatsoever added!
A modernized recipe makes this favorite old-time cake more pleasing than ever! Creamier and easier-to-spread fudge frosting — thanks to this simpler recipe! A light, more velvety, moist crumb — due to a smart new mixing method!

The recipe at the top of the page has ommitted the “milk.” Lucky I thought to come back to the site where found the “recipe card” or I would have had a flop on my hands. My husband loves this cake.
THANK YOU so much for letting me know! It’s been updated. :-) So glad you found the recipe that your husband loves!
On the amount of Chocolate, is it 4 oz of chocolate (todays package is 4 squares = 1 oz.) or is it simply 4 squares (1/4 oz each) ?
I was also wondering about the choc squares. In the old days, 1 sq=1 oz.
4 squares today=2 oz
The recipe as shown at the top of the page calls for 7 squares of chocolate. The instructions for the cake instruct us to place the chocolate in the top of a double boiler, but does not say how much of the chocolate. I have a copy of this recipe that I cut off of a box of Baker’s chocolate many years ago. Only four (4) squares of chocolate should be used for the cake (the remaining 3 squares are reserved for the frosting, apparently – however, my original recipe instructions call for 4 squares for the cake and 4 more for the frosting). This is an important detail. By the way, this is the ultimate chocolate cake. Definitely, a chocolate cake for purists!
can you please send me your recipe i made this same one about 40 years but like most lost the recipe it was so good, merry christmas
