Can anyone tell me what mud cake is? Sharon Zambito mentions it on her Topsy Turvy DVD and there are a lot of recipes under the Australian/New Zealand section of the recipe tab.
It's usually a very dense intensely chocolate cake.
Mmmm...you all are making me want chocolate cake. I think it has choc mousse in the middle. But I could be completely wrong.
What is a Mud cake:
(AU/NZ and US muds w/recipes and conversion help.)
(Includes non-chocolate mud cake recipes.)
Mud cakes are very very popular in Australia, in fact I would say that 85% of my cakes are either choc mud, choc port mud, caramel mud, white chocolate mud or the most popular I do is the chocolate and caramel mud swirl.
They don't have mousse in the middle, they are dense, rich flavours which I cover in dark chocolate ganache and then fondant. They are delicious!
Thanks, you all, for your information! I think I will have to try this type of cake! Just when my diet was going so well
Thanks Jan and Makeitmemorable!
Oh man, chocolate and caramel mud swirl sounds INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS!
Can the recipe be found here on CC?
I second your post Deb. Sounds like an awesome recipe!
OOOOH!! can't wait to try it out!
