Chocolate Mud Cake

This is yet another chocolate overloaded recipe. I serve this rich chocolate mud cake  with chocolate butter ganache.

If you are using instant coffee then you will not need 2 tbsp of sugar.

  • 250g butter, cubed
  • 250g chocolate (semi sweet)
  • 330g granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp granulated coffee + 2 tbsp sugar + 175ml (3/4cup) hot water
  • 125 ml milk, cold
  • 4 eggs
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) vegetable oil
  • 300g (2 cups) self raising flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 55g (1/2 cup) cocoa powder

  1.  Preheat oven at 150 degree celcius. Grease or line pan with baking paper.
  2. On double boiler (make sure the barely simmering water did not touch the bottom of bowl). Add in butter, chocolate, sugar, and coffee mix. Melt it all. it will take about 5 minutes. Once all melted remove bowl from pot and set aside. Let it cool down for 30 seconds. 
  3. Meanwhile prepare the dry ingredients. Mix together self raising flour, salt and cocoa powder.
  4. Add milk into the chocolate mix to reduce the temperature of the chocolate mixture. Whisk to mix well. I used electric mixer. 
  5. Before you  add in eggs please ensure that the mixture is not too hot otherwise the egg will turn into scramble egg. Add in egg one at a time and mix well. 
  6. Add in vegetable oil and mix well. 
  7. Now its time for dry ingredient. Add dry ingredients you prepared earlier in 3 addition. Combine well.
  8. Pour chocolate mixture mud cake mixture into prepare pan. 
  9. Place in preheated oven at 150 degree Celsius for 2 hours or until the tester comes out clean. Let it cool for 10 to 15 minutes and unmold. Let it cool on the cooling rack. 
  10. Serve just like this or in my case i made dark chocolate butter ganache for the cake.Make sure the cake is completely cool before you pour over the ganache.
Remove the top crust if you want to have even top
Use baking paper to catch the dripping chocolate.
