If you want the coffee flavour then I don’t think you’d have to offset it with more sugar. How far in advance can you make this cake? Though it looks great but its also too greasy because of the huge amount of butter. Set aside to cool completely in the tin. I hope it turned out well. To me if a recipe is so fussy that a different size pan throws it off, it’s not a good recipe. Grab your free Wholefood Snacks eBook below & click here for more about me. it’s dreamy …. So glad you like it Trudy. Goodluck! Place the butter, chocolate, sugar and water in a saucepan and stir over a low heat for 3-4 minutes … Well the proof will be in the pudding (or should I say cake he he he). I can’t understand why. Hours later it is now in my belly! I haven’t made it for ages but I really need to change that! but it was very delicious indeed.

The ganache is a bit too much and too rich for my taste, you might try using a normal milk chocolate maybe and maybe only making half of the recipe ( ganache). Oh goodness, how yum. Find my version on my blog. Getting further down the comments with people putting jams and fruits in layers between the cake and then the cake and icing, it begins to sound a lot like a Sacher Torte cake. I created a fun little group on facebook and I’d love for you to join in! Hmm mine doesn’t usually have a noticable coffee smell and you can never taste it. Or use a regular cake tin. Im letting it cool over night on the kitchen counter and having it for a friends birthday tomorrow afternoon….where should i store tomorrow ? I’m a fairly seasoned baker, and this is, by far, the BEST mud cake recipe I have EVER come across! The ingredients are all correct though I promise. Hi, this looks amazing but I am wanting an orange chocolate mudcake. God. We have sent you an activation link, magazine. Thanks for the recipe :).

Never a silly question! Not a problem Chetna. Anyway, I’ve been working on expanding my scratch recipes, I’ve been looking into Mudcakes. Oh my goodness me, this cake was positively DIVINE. If you have any pics I’d love it if you’d share them on the Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/ClaireKCreations?ref=hl. Anyone cooked this in a Gas Oven, as have new gas oven and not sure what to expect. Hi Erin. I’m sorry it’s not working out for you. Oooh yes cake pops would be delicious! Then, the texture was awful like a jello, no chocolate taste at all, I hate it and felt sorry that all my friends have to eat it. Ooh I like the sound of that Kath! Another option would be to spread the cake with a layer of buttercream or chocolate buttercream icing before you put the fondant on. Made a plain old chocolate cake after that and it was great. I’m so glad you liked it! Hi claire. I wanted a moist mud cake and it is beautiful I made your recipe for my husband for Valentines day as his favourite cake is a mud cake and he loved it. Hi Cindy. Well my wife and I have both died and gone to heaven. ️ And this year has been the year of chocolate cake for me. Or you could slice the baked cake in half and sandwich it back together with caramel and then top with a caramel buttercream (beat caramel sauce into a regular buttercream recipe?). Ooh Melissa we’re due a week apart. I’m not a coffee drinker either. So i started researching and found your recipe with wonderful reviews. It should be a hit at my brothers 18th party. I had to leave before she had it, but took a slice with me. Including the icing – was hoping to pipe it on but it may not be the right consistency. As I’m not used to cake batter having this consistency I was worried that 375ml of coffee seemed like an awful lot of liquid….did I read it right???? Once everything is combined, pour the batter into the tin. I’ve tried it in a few different tins and made cupcakes with it. Amazing :) !! Do you just swap out the dark chocolate for white? Followed to a T and best mud cake I have ever eaten! Hope your birth went well and you’re enjoying your gorgeous bub! I doubled recipe will this make it not set? I would probably just use a teaspoon and yes you could add it at the same time. Legend thanks :). I’ve made it twice so far, the first was delicious, but I like my cakes to be even more moist than this one was by the recipe, so I added an extra two egg yolks and took it out of the oven when it was just slightly underdone so it was really gooey and fudgey. Sorry you didn’t have any luck with the cake. Sharon there is no such thing as a silly question. Stir into a smooth paste and set aside. I think you had me at “you meet no resistance from the thick layer of chocolate goodness”.. :). I’m sure it will be perfect and your husband will love it! And I like how generously you’ve added the icing (usually my favourite part :P). We pretty much scooped out the cake and i scooped out enough into a container (as their was soo much left) Miss 8 reckons it looked like scoops of icecream whilst observing my method of transfer. cake AND brownie in one, crunchy part was nearly the best bit! It was a real hit with my daughter and her friends who came searching for a snack not long after the cake came out of the oven. I am by no means an inexperienced baker. Just doubled this cake batter up by 2 with my daughter. It’s yummmmmmmm! Yours looked like the end result I wanted so I decided to give it a go. I send you an email but I’d just keep it in an airtight container on the bench. Sounds wonderful Sarah. Glad you liked it Renae! Oh wow how well do raspberry and chocolate go together?! I’d wait til it cools – I’d say the smell will mellow by then. I don’t know how to post a pic here though but it looked beautiful! We ate a delicious dinner and were having a great time and then I saw them preparing my cake. Well it would if it didn’t all get gobbled up! You’ll just have to make it again :-) The first time I made it I was a bit worried about the batter too. Hi! I hope you’ll give it another go because it really is amazing. I ended up having to cut the sides off because they were burnt but it was definitely salvageable! You’ll just need to start checking on them a lot sooner so you don’t burn them. Is there any trace of it or does that choco haze just engulf you ? Hi Claire. Baked this cake tonight and im really quite concerned something went wrong, and im just not sure what. I use bakels gluten free flour and Whittaker’s 70% cocoa ‘Dark Ghana’ chocolate for the cake, and 62% cocoa for the icing ( a bit sweeter with a heady bitterness quotient, great balance with the brown sugar) also, coffee is great but my most recent bake of this cake I replaced the coffee with fresh squeezed orange juice and 1/3 less caster sugar for balance, tastes even more unbelievable with a citrus twist to the palate. Yes indeed I have made cupcakes before. Enjoy. We also have kids with a nut allergy but that’s it. and this should be ok to cut it off when I am icing it? I’m Claire. We measured things out as accurately as could be, set the oven temp on exactly (had thermometer inside oven) Could it be this cake cannot be doubled??? If it does taste a lot like dark chocolate can i use milk chocolate in the frosting instead? Hi Hilary, I might me a bit late replying to this I’m sorry! It’s so good isn’t it? It’s always tricky because ovens can vary so much. Perhaps use a tablespoon of brown sugar in its place. Enter the email address associated with your account, and we'll send you a link to reset your password. Hmm could it have been refrigerated? Thanks Steph! I tried this and it was realllllly reallllly runny. You could probably do 200g dark, 100g milk. Would you recommend making extra icing to sandwich the cakes together ? But it didn’t cook right. I so wish that there was a way you could smell this cake through the computer because I guarantee you’d be diving into your screen to get a taste. Yum! I’m wondering if I should increase ingredient quantities to get a higher cake. Hope the second one lasted a little longer. If you do use the smaller tins, just make sure you check the cake at least 15 minutes (even 30 minutes) earlier and then every 5-10 mins so it doesn’t burn. I need to make a bigger cake tho for a party and was wondering how much to do for a 10 inch round cake tin? Luckily it came together nicely and was a fairly robust mixture. Hope that helps! Do you make your own Birthday cake? The birthday girl loves both mud cakes and white chocolate, so do you think the cake would work covered in white chocolate ganache? To freeze wrap in plastic wrap then in aluminium foil. It’s up to you. It hits your lips and then the icing coats your teeth and lips like lipstick. Hello i just want to say my goodness thankyou so very much for this beautiful recipe. I am using it again but will need to make such a tall cake that I will need to at least triple the ingredients – is there any way to make it cheaper to make!! … this is an area I need/want to follow far more strictly & I know my grandies will love your recipes because their precious mum is also a bit of a health nut as you can be when not baking luscious mud cakes I want to make for hubby (of course ). I would worry that it wouldn’t cook through. Or do you think it would change the cake ? Ok back you come. Hi Helen. Would I still like it even though I’m not a fan of coffee? Start checking them at about 30 minutes. I have to tell you as well that it ended up being an ‘orange’ orange cake haha not a carrot. Thank you for this great recipe! :/ please help. The chili taste should not be dominant, but leave a little burning sensation to the mouth. Hi Sophie. This cake looks awesome but if you follow the recipe it’s like water & doesn’t cook! OOoh I will have to give it a go with the orange juice next time what a great idea Resley! What size tin did you use? Oh no John! Very easy to make and probably hard to go wrong. It worked out ok luckily, but I’d like to know what went wrong. I’m definitely not a baker and not patient! Your recipe looks yummy! Approx 1cm over bottom and sides of entire cake was burnt to the point of no return. Thanks again for all your help. Will certainly be trying a piece with the next batch. Another idea might be to add some peppermint essence to the icing instead? Oh dear that’s not good at all. You’re very welcome! I’ve never made frosting like that before will have to give it a go!! I just did ganache for the icing because it was quick and the girls couldn’t wait,but next time I’m going to try your icing cause it looks much yummier. It’s really just to add extra oomph so maybe even just add boiling water and a little extra cocoa?

Sift the flour and cocoa powder into a bowl, then add the caster sugar. I made it for a friends birthday recently and it was such a hit. You have saved me from future disasters. Only one way to find out I suppose! Hi…. Good luck! Enjoy the party! fridge or no fridge? :), Hi Sany. Q – Have you ever baked smaller sizes? Was it cool? first time baking a mud cake cooking in the oven right this moment…fingers crossed ladies.. its a surprise for my neice who turns 23!! The cakes were cooked perfectly after approx 1hr 20 mins they didnt sink nor did they burn or crack. Should the coffee be in liquid form? Sounds like it rose too much. I made this cake for a birthday and threw it away as there was no way I could serve it. Good luck Paula! https://www.clairekcreations.com/2014/03/the-best-ever-flourless-chocolate-cake/, https://www.clairekcreations.com/2011/01/flourless-chocolate-cake/, https://www.facebook.com/ClaireKCreations/?ref=tn_tnmn, https://www.facebook.com/ClaireKCreations?ref=hl, http://foodzeit.blogspot.com/2013/08/double-chocolate-mud-sourc-ream-ganash.html, 375ml (1½ cups) strong coffee (ie 375ml water with coffee dissolved - about 1 tbsp if you use instant coffee granules), 300g (10oz) good-quality dark chocolate, finely chopped. As my friend has just had a baby (1 week old) I substituted the coffee with decaf espresso, and as my household is wheat intolerant I used spelt flour instead of normal flour too. It can be baking away in the oven within 30 minutes. I suspected once the 1hour mark had come, I’d check the cake with my skewer. I ended up adding my raspberry mix on the top of the cake and then covering it all up with the chocolate icing. Sounds like a good idea actually! Henry’s birthday is this weekend and I just might have to make this – even tho he wanted carrot cake, ha! And the other time was last week, I did a cake decorating course that required a 7inch square mud cake, I have to say this liquid like recipe doesn’t lend itself to a square tin…. Also the batter was so liquidy that it leaked through the springform baking pan and i had to transfer it to a regular baking tin. Now I want chocolate cake! Dark Chocolate Mud Cake is a super chocolate sensation, perfect for hardcore chocoholics! It’s more of a treat cake. I made this cake 2 years ago and what a hit. Hi Kelly. If you’re happy to share I would love to see a photo of the cake when you make it. Ooh yum that sounds amazing. Bake the cake for 1 hour or until a cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean. It was amazing the next day, no longer super oily and very chocolate taste. Hi I have another question. It was truly decadent. But the batter was very sticky and I was wondering is this normal? Hi Kim. It is even better than you promised. (http://foodzeit.blogspot.com/2013/08/double-chocolate-mud-sourc-ream-ganash.html). Please try again. It’s been an hour and 15 and it’s still runny :(. I can’t think of why that would happen. Im making it again in a few weeks for my sons first birthday soooo good. Wanted to pick your brain Claire….if you happen to be a coffee lover and actually DO want some stronger coffee flavour, can you add in more coffee to concentrate the 375ml of water without upsetting the overall balance? I actually use the Aldi Belgium dark chocolate. I have just made this amazing cake for tomorrow how should I store it overnight? This White Chocolate Mud Cake recipe is so easy to make, in fact, you don’t even need an electric mixer. He is a mad chocolate fan and also choc pepermint fan so my thought was to make two cakes with a layer of bright green pepermint ganache in the middle do you think this will work or will the mud cake on top be to heavy for the ganache?
