Muddy Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Sauce

Oh. My. Goodness. One piece of this delicious, moist, chocolatey cake is more than enough! Eat it warm, with chocolate sauce on top (melted dark chocolate and cream). Delicious. And pretty darned close to perfect. Hubby says the best mud cake ever. Cannot form long sentences. Chocolate overload. Bliss.

    Thank you so much for the link. I actually felt quite silly because I found it just as I pressed ENTER on my keyboard, lol. I am going to try to find a caster sugar tomorrow, I asked quite a few people here and nobody seem to know what I’m talking about, lol. I believe they call it “super fine” sugar. I will definitely let you know once I make it! Thanks again.

    Is it really only 1/3 cup of flour for that recipe?

    Hi Vivianne,

    Yes, just 1/3 of a cup. If you like chocolate you won’t be disappointed with this cake. Just be gentle with the batter for best results.

    Hey I need to make a airplane cake for my graduation party and I’ve heard that Mud cake is awsome when it comes to carving shapes….So your recipe looks delicious and I’m thinking it would be the perfect one for this little project of mine. But my problem is that the body of the plane will be made in a 16″ by 4″ by 4″ cake pan. I’m wondering how I could ajust the heat etc. so that it would bake properly within and not burn or anything on the outsides. If you have any ideas at all, please let me know. Thanks!!

      Hi Kathleen,

      I would tend to cook it longer rather than a higher temperture. I’d keep a close eye on it though – keep testing it for doneness.

      I haven’t really carved a cake before, but I once read people may freeze it beforehand or at least putting it in the fridge a while so it’s firm. I would assume you’d need to do a crumb-layer of icing before the final coloured layer of icing for a nice finish.

      Let me know how you go!
