Hi all - I have a 30th Birthday order for this Sat for Caramel Mud Cake. Not really sure what filling to use, I usually go with ganache for white or dark mud cake.

Does anyone have any recipes for fillings that sing with caramel mud!
TIA!
Lauren

I have never made a mud cake but have always wanted to. I just don't know if I can get my conversions right from Aussie to American.... all the recipes I have found on this site.. have to be converted... darn it.

I couldn't find a recipe for this today whilst they were updating the site, so i improvised. I had some Buttercream Dream in the fridge, melted some white choc and mixed it thru. It ended up with some small lumps of choc in it, but I covered with fondant so no matter! Yummy.

The final result was white choc ganache filling, white choc buttercream and then fondant. I just wish I was going to get to eat a piece! icon_rolleyes.gif

This is the Caramel Mud Recipe I used - it's from a Woman's Weekly Cake book. I haven't actully eaten this cake yet, but it looked and smelled fantastic!

185g butter, chopped
150g white choc
1 cup (200g) firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup golden syrup
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup self raising flour
2 eggs, beaten lightly

* Combine butter, chocolate, sugar, golden syrup and milk in medium saucepan, stir over low heat, without boiling, until smooth. Transfer mixture to large bowl, cool for 15 mins.

* Whisk in flours then egg, pour into prepared pan ( 8 inch, 3 inch high)
* Bake in moderately slow oven about 1 1/2 hours ( mine was in for 2 hours)
