chocolate mud cake

The first time i baked it i was too impatient and removed it from the tin when it was still warm! Yes leaving out the coffee is tricky. Hope it works out! If you wanted to leave it out it wouldn’t be too disastrous. Hi Melissa. Can’t wait until its done. I am actually making some tomorrow. Have you ever baked smaller sizes? I don’t think you can ever overdo anything with salted caramel. Hi, I need to make a layered birthday cake for my son and was discovered your delicious recipe for this chocolate mud cake. Hi Ash. :/ please help. Thanks so much. Desserts are not my thing, and for some reason mud cakes have always been a challenge, so thank you, because for once got it right :-), I am planning on making this cake for my daughters birthday, although nice and moist, my cake didn’t rise much at all (almost like a slab cake). :-p. WOW! It’s yummmmmmmm! I’m thinking of making it for my 40th birthday party next month instead of buying one (yours is way better than the one we usually order from the cake shop). Now you can stay up to date with all the latest news, recipes and offers. Hi claire. Hello, I’ve just come across this recipe. Claire, I made this recipe but it did not set properly. Family, friends, neighbours all loved it and wanted the recipe! Glad it was a hit! Enjoy it as a dessert or have a sliver with a cup of tea. The recipe is quite similar to one I was given by my mum’s friend. I Jem. 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. argh so many questions. Required fields are marked *. It now is pretty much exactly like my fave dessert from my favorite restaurant :) I am a happy girl indeed ! The icing was another matter! Ooh Melissa we’re due a week apart. I’d strongly advise lining them as well as greasing them. Maybe explain things better for us retarded fathers trying to make their kids something to eat. I saved what I could and made cake pops with the rest! Just placed it in the oven, fingers crossed! I replaced some of the dark chocolate in the icing for milk chocolate (maybe about 60grams as that’s all I had) because I’m a sweet tooth. In a large bowl, melt the butter and chocolate … After baking it, they cut it and rearranged to make it shaped like a dog. 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. Very cute and good luck! Oh I bet the good quality stuff would make it even better. This cake was super moist and chocolatey. The first time I made it I was a bit worried but it turns out well. This recipe looks great. Amber. I can’t think of why that would happen. Rita, I have yet to bake this because I only found the receipe today, but the comments have more than convinced me!! I am planning on making this recipe as cupcakes. However, the color and texture (including firmness) of the cake and icing were nearly identical. The cake was really good. Hi Claire, I’m new to your blog but so pleased I found you. Can I use all the ingredients besides the chocolate in the icing or will it not turn out right? please amend the recipe to say cups or mls and not both as it is very very misleading…i put 375ml of water ina measuring jug with my coffee instead of using cups and it did NOT measure 1 1/2 cups!!! … The very best chocolate mud cake recipe I have been seeing around. Thanks a lot. I’m new to your website, thankfully I stumbled across it! You most certainly can make it a day in advance in fact I would recommend it! If you can’t get that then I would replace a little of the chocolate with Nutella. Oh no! You could probably do 200g dark, 100g milk. I’ve no idea who you are Claire K but I stumbled upon your blog, made your cake and it was unbelievable! Hi, this cake has such great reviews I’m planning on making it for easter. The chili taste should not be dominant, but leave a little burning sensation to the mouth. Hi Michelle. Would just like to know if Brittany shared with you how she veganised this cake? Just one thing… It did burn a little on top and on the sides, nothing major as I was able to cut it off and it didn’t really affect the final result, but does it happen to you too? JEM. I plan on making this on the weekend – if I were to make it the day before would the cake AND the icing keep overnight in the fridge? I usually eat half of it. Add the sugar to the pot and stir it in until it has dissolved too. I think I am going to try with a thiner layer of your icing, because it is so good! Place chocolate, butter, milk and sugar in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently … It’s funny, because I baked it at 160, not even 180, like on the recipe…. Yum! That said, my improvised icing worked and the cake tasted very good next day :-). I’ll let you know how it went! Hi Claire. Also my 4 girls loved it as well and when it was one of my girls 21st this year i tripled your recipe and made her a beautiful cake for it, it was a winner thankyou :). What size did you use? It’s a secret recipe that I’m not allowed to blog, but this one, well this one I’m allowed to share and share it I will. So glad it was a hit Amber! And I am not usually a favourite of Chocolate Mud Cake. Excellent recipe! I havn’t made it before. I’m glad it was successful for you. Legend thanks :). 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!! 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. The cake turned out amazing! Amazing cake!!! Hello i just want to say my goodness thankyou so very much for this beautiful recipe. The icing is ok to pipe too as long as it’s not too hot. I iced it the night before and put it in the fridge but served it at room temperature. I was just wondering, every time I’ve made it, it has ended up with an air ring round the middle when its fully cooked. You’re very welcome Amanda! Just doubled this cake batter up by 2 with my daughter. I have tried with about 4 other recipes but nothing compared to this one! :). I hope it turns out. Thank you for this great recipe! It was easy & turned out delicious! Hi…. It had 1mm or 2 think crispy lid on it but it sunk the cake alot and it looks like a self saucing pudding any tips? Its absolutely divine and everyone loves it. To freeze wrap in plastic wrap then in aluminium foil. Instead of coffee I used milk and I added a layer of strawberry jam between the cake and ganache layer. But I will definitely be making this cake over and over again! Hi Jacqui. Would you need to compensate for bitterness by adding more caster sugar? You have saved me from future disasters. Can’t wait to try this mud cake :) !! It’s more of a treat cake. Express post! I didn’t get to taste the cake but it received rave reviews! Butter paper and dust pans with flour, knocking out excess. I think that’s what is usually recommended. I made this cake last week for my boyfriend Chris’ birthday. I’m doing a test run as it is my sons birthday this week. I’d divide it in two and bake for less time in separate pans rather than cutting it. I hope you’ll give it another go because it really is amazing. The guests liked it very much, much to my regret, there was nothing left. I love how this cake looks & am so sure its gonna taste better!! Could there be any other issue? Melt the chocolate, butter, espresso powder and milk in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water until smooth. I did try cutting it in half, but it did not work out. 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!! Hi Sehr. Making a trial this weekend. Yep I’d stack two on top. Thank you. I’d love to see a photo if you make it again! Holy moly, does it deliver!! it’s dreamy …. I usually add a heaped tablespoon of coffee granules. Hi Anushka. I’ve never actually heard of it but off to investigate now. I am definitely going to make this, and I will report back on my attempt (I have been known to have some cracker failures) However, I was wondering with the frosting, if you’re on a time limit, could you put the frosting in the fridge between whisking it to speed up the thickening process? 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. What would approx. Yes the batter is really liquid before baking. I had to post here as I recently made this cake (I followed the recipe down to a tee – only diff in a non fan forced oven it took about an 1.2hrs) – and it is the BEST CAKE I have ever made or eaten! Do not allow to boil. 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?). It’s a seriously good cake! It didn’t rise at all and has an overall very strong coffee taste! I’ve never made frosting like that before will have to give it a go!! I have been hailed the birthday cake queen in my family since finding your recipe!! I hope you at least got a commission? Hello Claire. It worked out ok luckily, but I’d like to know what went wrong. how do you suggest to adapt recipe? I just have to say Claire, this is SERIOUSLY THE BEST CHOC MUD CAKE EVER!! Q – Have you ever baked smaller sizes? Yay to the Birthday cake queen! If you’d like a higher cake then I’d recommend making two and sandwiching them together rather than adding more batter to the tin as it might not cook properly. It then sinks down when it’s cooling so doesnt have an evenish level!It’s also really delicate and crumbles.I’ve tried it in both a round and square tin! Sorry to ask a stupid question, but is it ok to use a smaller cake tin and can I use regular ganache icing. So dense, moist and rich. I am currently making a two-tiered wedding cake, and this recipe looks practically perfect! Appreciate your answers very much, thank you in advance! The mixture boiled over in the tin and the cake looks absolutely repulsive. I know it could be a lot of waste (or very fun day) but I would try it out first (maybe a smaller version). It looks amazing and I don’t want to have to substitute it with a buttercream! 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? I also noticed a eggy taste upon first tasting of the cake once cooled, but did not notice it the next day of eating. Usually coffee and orange to not go together well, at least not to my taste. I really think it’s the best I’ve ever had (well I’m yet to beat it). That would have been amazing! You pick up your cake fork and raise it to touch the top of the glossy icing. If you’d like to check it out, you can request to join HERE. I quadripled the recipe and used 4 x 23 cm pans everything worked out beautifully as per your recipe. I’d love to see a photo if you’re happy to share? Yay! Im yet to try a piece but it looked dense and so so moist. Don't forget to check your email and click on the link to simplify your dinner times. Hi Lisa. Maybe it’s made with super duper rich chocolate? Strange my skewer comes out in batter and the cake is still wobbling.. Thanks x. Hi Sara.,,,,, 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. It hits your lips and then the icing coats your teeth and lips like lipstick. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar … Anyway, I’ve been working on expanding my scratch recipes, I’ve been looking into Mudcakes. Also if I ice the cake the day before can it still be kept on the bench in a container? No problem at all. Q – I wanted to know if this tastes strongly of coffee as we don’t really like coffee but we love a good chocolate mud cake. From memory the batter is pretty runny. Oh making it even more fudgey sounds amazing Maddie. Dark Chocolate is combined with butter, sugar, milk, flour, and eggs to create a dark, thick batter. What a great way to start the year Linnea. Is there any trace of it or does that choco haze just engulf you ? I thought the same thing the first time I made it cause I’m not a coffee fan either but ever since that first bite I’m hooked! It sure can. Thank you for the recipe, mouthwatering photos and all your informative replies. so my first question is how many batches of the above recipe would I need for one half sheet pan? I’m so fussy – so many of these blogged recipes fall short of the mark (even Nigella’s own recipes) but yours delivered beautifully! Ok I just found out today I’m in charge of my bf’s Dads birthday cake on Monday and also that he loves rich chocolate cakes. Sorry you didn’t have any luck with the cake. please click this link to activate your account. If you want to do the same icing I am not sure how it freezes but you could try it out. Hi Karen. How did it turn out? It doesn’t sound like you had the temperature wrong or anything like that. But I’m like you. When you say “good quality dark chocolate” in your posts/recipes, can you tell me exactly what you use? Nice and rich and not bitter. Prepare the Cake: Preheat oven to 325˚F. I hope you give it another go. You’re very welcome Katie. Only one way to find out I suppose! That would definitely work and sounds amazing. Remove cake from oven, spread marshmallows on top, and bake an additional 20 min. What about you? I hope it works out for you! The cakes were cooked perfectly after approx 1hr 20 mins they didnt sink nor did they burn or crack. Some of my cake batter leaked out of my springform tin so if your tin doesn’t seal really well, you might want to put your tin on a baking tray lined with foil or baking paper or wrap your springform tin in foil. Preparation. I’m so glad you liked it! Unfortunately it’s not an inexpensive cake to make. Salted caramel filled chocolate cake - Happy Birthday to me! Q – I want to make two small ones though, so wondering if the mixture would be enough to make in two loaf tins? The chocolaty goodness just overwhelms everything else. There was an error submitting your subscription. It’s a bit of a guessing game from what I’ve found Cheree. So i started researching and found your recipe with wonderful reviews. So perhaps you should call it Claire’s, Sacher mississippi mud torte!!! I would guestimate at about 4cm. I just served the cake upside down so the crunchy top was on the bottom and the icing blended well into the cake. The coffee needs to be dissolved in the water first. Oh no Rachelle that doesn’t sound good! And this will now be my go to recipe for a chocolate cake. Another issue could have been that the tin was too small? Can i just make normal ganache icing? I’d start checking it after 40 minutes about every 5 minutes or so. Would I still like it even though I’m not a fan of coffee? The tin it makes is about 22cm (9 inch) but I have made it in so many different tins. Yum to the hazelnut! Hmm that doesn’t sound good Kylie. I think if you just halve the recipe it would be perfect for 8inch. It would be ok to cover in fondant no problem. Whisking the eggs not too vigorously at the end will minimise it puffing up and sinking. Thank you for sharing and for making the birthday girl’s day! I like to make it at least a day in advance. Thanks Claire I have it in the oven and it does smell superb. I used espresso coffee and followed recipe and its really smells of coffee, is that right? There are a few things I can think of – one would be to add some hazelnut extract. I added 1tsp of hazelnut extract and lessened the amount of coffee used and it was perfect! I am by no means an inexperienced baker. Carrot cake? It’s great because you can make the cake in advance and even freeze it if you like. Just check on it a bit earlier in the bigger tin. I’m not sure about the gas oven. The feedback from customers has been excellent and all sold out. Hi Ash. The basic recipe of the cake is splendid, but the icing seemed to be too heavy for our (European) taste. The first time there was a bit left over and it would have been a shame to let it go to waste right? How was the coffee when you added it? I don’t want to take it out of the recipe if it really adds to the deliciousness but I also don’t want a strong coffee tasting cake. It should be a hit at my brothers 18th party. I am kind of new in Australia and reading your recipes and point of view makes me feel more familiar with your culture! Hi Claire. Would you recommend making extra icing to sandwich the cakes together ? Your email address will not be published. I baked on the 22cm pan, made double the qty and baked in 2 x 22cm pans to sandwich it. Claire, would be honored. It’s been an hour and 15 and it’s still runny :(. Hi Claire. Welcome Rhonda! Glad you like the cake! Ooh that sounds good. Hi there! Yes the cake needs to come out of the oven to cool otherwise it will continue to cook which is why it was rock solid. You must be logged in to rate a recipe, click here to login. Hi Claire, I made this cake on the weekend and it was devoured before my eyes! I was just wondering what sort of cocoa powder to use. Could it have been self-raising flour? just baked this exactly the same as the recipe minus half the sugar–even made 2 little cupcakes with left over and tastes great. I do a lot of baking but I’ve never made a mud cake before so I don’t have a clue what the consistency of the batter is meant to be like. Hi Claire :) sorry if I sound silly but am new to baking and want to try this out.. With step 2 in regards to the coffee, do I add coffee into 375ml of water or do I just add the coffee powder straight into the butter & chocolate mixture? I want to Beke the cake on Friday and plan to decorate and serve on Sunday. Hi Sophie. OMG!!! Now I want mud cake! You can’t taste it. Hi Claire, I currently have this cake cooking in the oven.
