Best caramel mudcake recipe

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 

Hi, I have found a recipe for caramel mudcake that is (in my opinion) perfect. Sweet, but not too sweet with a lovely caramel flavour and just the right amount of muddiness :) I made white chocolate BC to go with it and everyone loved it! So I thought I'd share the recipe. I originally found the recipe on Taste . com . au I will look no further for my perfect caramel mudcake recipe because this is it. And I might add, it makes your house smell amazing! I was swooning. 

 

 

  • Melted butter, to grease
  • 200g butter, cubed
  • 200g white chocolate (Nestle brand), chopped
  • 200g (1 cup, firmly packed) dark brown sugar
  • 180ml (3/4 cup) hot water
  • 1 tbs golden syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 150g (1 cup) plain flour
  • 150g (1 cup) self-raising flour
  •  
  • 1) Preheat oven to 160°C. Brush a round 22cm (base measurement) cake pan with melted butter. Line base and side with non-stick baking paper.
  • 2) Place butter, chocolate, sugar, water, golden syrup and vanilla essence in a heavy-based saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat with a wooden spoon for 5 mins or until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Set aside for 20 mins to cool
  • 3) Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift combined flours over chocolate mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined.
  • 4) Pour mixture into pan and bake in preheated oven for 50-60 mins or until a skewer comes out almost clean. Stand cake for 20 mins before turning onto a wire rack to cool.

I've used this recipe before and really liked it a lot as well. I didn't use Nestle white chocolate though..I used another brand- that is the only substitution I made.

Naadia - I couldn't resist and it's in the oven as I write, the house is smelling divine. I will keep you updated when it's done.

Thanks!

So True! Mud cakes have become one of my favorite types of cakes around.

 It's an Australian product- it's syrup that literally is golden in color. I'm not sure if you can get it in the US...maybe at a specialty store?

 

edit' I guess you can get it in the UK too.

Thanks Nadiaa, I have added this to my list of stuff to try. I regularly make white chocolate mud cakes and cupcakes, but have yet to try a caramel one.

Golden syrup is a British product made by Tate&Lyle. It is similar in consistency to corn syrup or glucose, but it is a golden colour.

Thanks Nadiaa for the information.  I had pinned this recipe and even bought the golden syrup but never made it.  Will definitely be making it soon.

Thanks for posting the recipe Nadiaa. I have made chocolate mudcake before but never tried the caramel version. Sounds very delicious. Will definitely make it this week. Incidentally can you ice this with chocolate ganache?

Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! Think I'll try this one on the weekend. I normally make a chocolate mud or white chocolate mud and this is perfect to change it up.

Claire, I'm so glad you love it!!
Fillylily, yep, you can definitely ganache it.

It didn't even occur to me that some of you might not be familiar with golden syrup. Sorry! I'm glad it wa sorted out though.

For those of us in the States you can buy golden syrup on Amazon and from King Arthur Flour.

What us vanilla essence? Is that extract?
