Here is a lovely Chcolate Mud Cake recipe i use -
Very moist - and delicious at the same time.
Have posted a link to enable comverting of measurements for those outside of Australia.
Plus a link to show what i am talking about when i say *cherry ripe*
You do not need to add the cherrry ripe - just make the plain Choc Mud Cake - i am sure you will enjoy it.
Never had a complaint yet.
BluehueCherry Ripe Mud Cake
this is the conversion chart i use when making recipes from other countries-I find it the best one...
Makes 1 8 inch round or 2 x 6 inch round
250g unsalted butter
1 Tablespoon instant coffee powder
1 & 2/3 cup coconut milk
200g dark chocolate
2 cups caster sugar
3/4 cup self raising flour
1 cup plain flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder (I use Dutch cocoa)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 x 85g cherry ripe bars, chopped coarsely
this is a cherry chocolate bar we have over here - http://www.google.com.au/image.....tbs=isch:1
thought i would send this link so as you know what i am talking about.
1. Preheat oven to 150C A SLOW OVEN FOR US IS = 150c = 275/300F
And Line tins with baking paper.
2. Combine butter, coffee powder, coconut milk, chocolate and sugar in a saucepan and stir until melted. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
3. Sift dry ingredients in a bowl, add chocolate mixture, whisk until combined. Add eggs and vanilla, whisk. Stir in cherry ripe (set aside a small amount)
4. Pour into tins and scatter remaining cherry ripe over the top of batter.
5. Bake in slow oven for about 1hr and 45 minutes.
6. Remove from oven and cool in tin.
This cake improves each day and is at its peak on about day 3. It also freezes really well
If you don't like the cherry ripe bits - just omit - it won't affect the texture of the cake at all.
Its just that this is the chocolate mud cake i prefer to use - and when i found it was under the cherry ripe mud cake heading - never got around to changing the recipe in my file -
You can add some other chocolate bar if you wish - say a peppermint chocolate bar - or even chocolate coated honeycomb - i haven't done that but a friend did and she said it was delish.
