Hot Fudge Sundae Cake

Oh my! This is such a wonderful dessert. I learned this recipe back in Home Ec. I’ve enjoyed making it for a long time now. It is pretty rich so we don’t eat it very often but the kids consider it a real treat when we do. Try this drizzled with some Homemade Caramel Sauce for an extra special treat.

Hot Fudge Sundae Cake

Hot Fudge Sundae Cake


  • Chocolate cake, made in a 13×9 in pan
  • Vanilla ice cream, I try to buy the quart box for this recipe
  • Homemade Chocolate Syrup
  • Whipped cream, optional
  • Maraschino cherries, optional


Cut the cake into squares. I normally get 12-16 squares from a 13 x 9 pan.

Slice each square horizontally so you have a top and bottom slice.

Now take the ice cream and unwrap the whole thing. Slice into 1/2 inch slices and divide each slice into quarters.

Place an ice cream quarter, or two, on the bottom half of the cake.

Top with the top half of cake.

Drizzle with chocolate syrup.

Garnish with whipped cream and cherry, if desired.
