I have to make a Chocolate Mud Cake for FIL for his 80th birthday. That's fine, except he can taste the slightest hint of alcohol. I was going to use the Dark Chocolate Mudcake from CC but don't know what to replace the whisky with, I don't want to have a bland cake.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks. icon_smile.gif

Is the Dark Chocoalte Mudcake recipe you're referring to, one of mine? If you are, then you can easily replace the whiskey with water, it will work still, and will still taste good. The secret is to use a really nice quality cocoa. Good luck.

Yeah it is yours Nati I've made it before and it was yummy. I'll make it with water. I use Nestle or Cadbury cocoa not homebrands so it should work. Thanks for the info.

Yes i have made this i must say it is beautiful. i use to use nestle and cadbury but i have now found that they have become much lighter in colour so now i use homebrand or sunvalley cocoa, as they seem to be darker, Have no idea what the company have done to our cocoa, i throught it was just me but ive meet other parents who bake for my childs school and they too found that brand much lighter, we live in the country and theres only 26 kids in the school so we have to do things to keep our kiddies school going, thanks for the great recipe
