Hey everyone.
I've made mudcake a few times now (different recipes) and I seem to always have lumps in it.
The recipes I've used imply that you shouldnt overbeat the mix, just stir with a wooden spoon or similar, but this gives me lumps.
anyone know how I can stop this?
Does anyone just beat the H out of it???

Have you sifted everything before? Maybe that would help.

I always use a large hand-whisk to mix up mudcakes. I don't beat the mixture but do find that the whisk eliminates any lumps of flour.

You should really try sifting all the dry ingredients first. I always do. A few weeks ago I forgot and the mix was very lumpy. I baked the cake and i could see The white lumps in the cake. It's in the freezer- I'll have to see how it tastes. But against that dark chocolate mix, it's not very appealing.
Let us know how you go.
