A mud cake is a lovely moist dense cake made with either white chocolate or dark chocolate that will stay fresh for at least a week or so. Over here we generally fill/layer with either dark choc ganache or white choc ganache, as it's very stable under fondant. Very popular for wedding cakes.
Other flavours can then be added, such as lemon, lime, and orange rind to a white choc mud, or you can fold through raspberries, coconut and substitute the milk for coconut milk, or add chopped cherry ripe (choc bar over here) or any other choc bar, the list is endless. If you google chocolate mud cake you will find loads of recipes.

Around here the mud cake is basically a dense dark chocolate cake....it becomes Mississippi mud cake with the addition of marshmallows and pecans. If you want to make a layer cake that isn't the usual single layer traditional mud cake, then I recommend Paula Deen's at


Fair warning...this is a "southern" cake and is very sweet. But it's one of the most requested cakes I make
