Mudcake....Wow!

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I just tried the dark chocolate mudcake recipe (Nati's) and it is so YUMMY! It's like a cross between a brownie and a flourless chocolate cake. Can't go wrong there! Anyway, thanks for posting that recipe Nati! The best part is that I actually get to eat this cake since it's for my daughter's first birthday, this Sunday. I'm definitely going to have to try the white chocolate mudcake sometime soon.

So far I've torted the cake and filled with a chocolate BC, and pink BC for the rest. That's as far as I've got with the design. icon_confused.gif I'm procrastinating big time! I feel like I have to do some kind of decorated cake since it's her first birthday, but I'm still tired from December's cakes!! icon_cry.gif I see so many really nice 1st birthday cakes on CC! I might play around with some leftover white modeling chocolate....

I love chocolate mudcake! It is so good for carving to make novelty cakes as well. Almost all of my cakes are chocolate mud!

I tried to "search" for this recipe, but can't seem to find it. Can someone please post a link or the recipe?

Thanks so much!

Hi Ladies
I just wanted to point out that ALL the mudcake recipes i've posted should be baked at 160 degrees celcius NOT 180 like stated in the recipes. I only realised my mistake after the recipe was posted and for the time being it can't be fixed.
Enjoy : )

PS: The temperature for my other recipes are right icon_smile.gif

Actually, that recipe is a different version than the one I tried. It's under Australian and New Zealand cakes. I'm sure that one's good too though!

Nati, these recipes sound wonderful! I'm going to try the chocolate mud cake soon but have to convert from gms measurments. And I just checked and my new oven thermometer doesn't show celcius like my old one did. I hope there's a conversion chart here somewhere.

According to my converter 160c is 320F
Does that sound right?

Hey CarolAnn!!!..haven't seen you for a while..HNY!!

conversion in temp from the back of Toba's new book

162.79C = 325F

So it seems you would cook these cakes at just below 325...the next temp up or down is too far away..I think it would be fine at 325!!

edited to say: I think most NA ovens are only marked at 300, 325, 350 etc...maybe the new ones can be set to a more precise temp(I have an older oven)..if you can, set it to what Nati posted, 325 is closest of the std temps
Hope that helps

ummm, I just went to this link and really want to try this recipe - it sounds so good. But would anyone be willing to convert it to simple english for me? I can do the measurement conversions but what is castor sugar, chocolate buttons and self raising flour? icon_eek.gif Maybe dumb questions but I'm just not getting it... icon_redface.gif

Castor sugar - Superfine sugar, just like regular but the granules are very very fine, so it melts quicker, if you're weighing your ingredients regular granulated sugar is fine.
Chocolate buttons - I think you guys call them choc melts?? I use Callebaut brand
Self Raising Flour - Flour that comes with raising agent included

cheers
