What is Chocolate Jiggly Cake Recipe?

Jiggly Cake, also known as a chocolate truffle cake, is an easy-to-make recipe that is perfect for any occasion. It is rich, deep, and velvety. The texture of this cake is quite dense, but it’s not hard to make.

I’ve been experimenting with the recipe I originally borrowed from my mother on how I can improve on the Jiggly Cake recipe. The first one was too dry and crumbly, making my mom very sad because she thought the cake was too hard to cut.

So here is my revised recipe, which is moist and gooey. Now, you can cut this cake.

How To Make Chocolate Jiggly Cake Recipe?


  • 3/4  cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder (powdered)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Two eggs, beaten lightly with a fork, and set aside. (If you’re using cake mix, I recommend egg whites.)


Step 1.

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Lightly grease and flour 9 inches round cake pan. Set aside.

Step 2.

Heat the chocolate and butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring until melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.

Step 3.

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Add the eggs into the cooled chocolate mixture and blend thoroughly by stirring with a wire whisk or handheld mixer.

Then add Chocolate chips and stir until combined well. Using a rubber spatula, fold the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture until combined well.

Step 4.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Step 5.

Pour warm sauce over cool cake and serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream if desired.


  • For added texture and flavor, you can add walnuts, pecans, and macadamias to your chocolate batter.
  • You can also replace the unsalted butter with peanut butter to give it a nutty kick.
  • The original recipe called for 1/2 cup milk, but I prefer the cake without any milk.

How Long Will It Take To Prepare?
