There appear to be a large variety of recipes on the internet for Boston Fudge Cake. Some are very modern and do not use sour milk, some use sour cream, some use buttermilk. From what I can tell, a fudge cake is going to be more like a brownie, more dense than a standard chocolate cake, and some have a pudding center. Some are served with icing, some as a layer cake, and some without icing, but with a chocolate or caramel pecan sauce topping. They all sound wonderful!

what is considered a slow oven?
Hi Tim – a slow oven is 300 degrees. You can search in the search box for “slow oven” and that will bring up a post with all the oven temperatures and their old style names. :-)
