This is the BEST choc mud cake I've ever tried! Got it from a book called 'the essential guide to cake decorating'. I've noticed that Planet Cake uses a very similar recipe in their new book, but I prefer this one (and it is the original)

This is for a 9" round or 8" square

220g butter
220g dark choc
4 tsp instant coffee
160ml water
125g self raising flour
125g plain flour
50g cocoa powder
1/2 tsp bicarb of soda
480g caster sugar
4 eggs (lightly beaten)
7tsp vegetable oil
110ml buttermilk

melt the butter, chocolate, coffee and water in a pan on a low heat until combined then remove from the heat

sift the flours, cocoa and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl and stir in the sugar and make a well in the centre. Add the combined eggs, oil and buttermilk and the chocolate mixture, stirring with a large spoon until completely combined.

Pour into a lined tin and bake for 1hr 45 mins. A skewer inserted into the cake should come out clean, though it may be alittle sticky. Leave the cake in the tin until it is cold.
