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.

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 icon_rolleyes.gif
