Caramel Mud Cake

Yes, it's Mud cake! NO, not cake made with clay and soil.... haha.... Well, basically, Mud cake is a dessert made with dark chocolate cake and dark chocolate icing. And the cake itself has a very moist, crumbly texture which also typically dense. But now, Mud cake comes in any form and flavour. As you can see here, mine is caramel flavour mud cake.

And here's the recipe.

Ingredients :
250gm butter
1-1/2 cup brown sugar
150gm white chocolate, chopped
200ml milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups flour
3 tspn baking powder

Method :
(1) melt butter, sugar, milk and chocolate in a saucepan without boiling it.
(2) then transfer mixture into a big bowl and cool for 15mins.
(3) stir in egg, flour & baking powder and mix well.
(4) pour batter into a 8" tray lined with parchment paper.
(5) bake at preheated oven at 165-170'c for about one(1) hour & 30mins.
(6) leave the cake cool 30mins before removing from the tray.
(7) finally, ganache with spreadable white chocolate.


It's very common to have crack top mud cake especially by using a 8" pan. So, don't worry! Just turn the cake upside down. It looks as gorgeous!
*
To prevent crack top : Use a 9" pan and cover the top with aluminium foil, bake for about an hour. Then remove the foil and bake for another 30mins.
*
Ingredient for White Chocolate ganache :
130ml heavy cream
350gm white chocolate, chopped
(bring cream to a boil in a small saucepan and pour it over the chopped chocolate, stir untill chocolate melts and keep refrigerated untill spreadable.)
Perfect colour for the perfect cake...... colour of mud.*sigh* You dare to eat! haha....

Jess : Thank you!

mamakucing : Want me to FedEX over? :o)

Rebecca : No a problem! Just wait me at the other side of the printer. lol!

Jess : Whoa, the chocolate ganache... the more the merrier! NMost recipe they used selfraising flour for baking but I used a/p flour by adding in extra baking powder. So, the cake looks taller and lighter.

Belinda : Ya, I know! I hope I don't have problem by the time I wanted to fit in my new year dress, 2 weeks later! ;o(

Maya : Honey cake is very fine & soft cake!

Claire : I bet you will! haha... You've no need to waste your energy in baking. Elin will sure send you some yummy treats soon. All you have to do is, just empty your stomach! haha....
