Mud Cake

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

just wanted to check which do you use for chocolate mud cakes- the chocolate chips or the baking chocolate (block)???

post #2 of 7

Last week I made two mud cakes - one with dark chocolate chips, one with semi-sweet.  I didn't think either turned out overly chocolately.  The semi sweet one turned out with a more milk chocolate color.  I would either try those again with a cocoa addition, or try one with unsweetened chocolate, if you want it super chocolately.

 

I used an Australian recipe, and maybe their "dark" chocolate was really supposed to be unsweetened??  Didn't consider that until your post.

I personally use Callebut couveture nowadays in all my cooking but in the past have made mud cakes with the block baking chocolate.

I use coverture chocolate, the highest quality I can find when I'm shopping.  Also I add coffee instead of water or any other liquid.  Makes a really rich dark chocolate.

Callebaut is not cheap but i buy it in bulk on the pretext that I am going to make those beautiful little shiny very expensive chocolates ( I went and did a course in Melbourne on chocolate making 3 years ago).  It tastes so wonderful that I generally end up eating quite a bit of it straight out of the packet.  It is worlds away in taste from the cheaper chocolates and worth every cents as far as I am concerned.  As I live miles and miles from anywhere it also costs me quite a bit to get it shipped but I think it is worth it.
