What do you people think about this recipe? Traditional mudcakes ask for a lot of butter and chocolate and I am trying to keep low budget, so how would this be for a cheap mudcake? Please give your opnions. thank you.
- 60 grams cocoa
- 180 grams plain flour
- 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- 125 grams butter
- 300 grams caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup cold tap water
Mix the cocoa with one cup of cold tap water, stir and set aside. In another bowl sift the flour with the bicarb – and set this aside. Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and beat well in between. Add bit by bit the cocoa mixture and the flour mixture alternatively until all mixed well. Pour in a greased round cake tin and bake for 1 hour at 180 degrees. Allow the cake to cool in the tin.
When you made it, how did you like it? Was it rich like a regular mud cake?
ALooks closer to a traditional American butter cake than a mud cake, to me. If I were to try this recipe, I would use the water warm/hot to bloom the cocoa powder in. If you are looking for the dense type cake typical of muds, fluffing the sugar into the butter is counterproductive, no? Try it and see....let us know.
AIf once you try this cake, and do not like it. And you are looking for economical, try wacky cake or texas sheet cake.
AIs this for you, or for customers?
AHas anybody been asked to supply sample cake? I was asked by a quoting customer, I declined as I am not in a position to do so. please help for future reference. Thanks [B][/B]

What is a "quoting customer"? I'm not familiar with that phrase. Is that an individual or a potential wholesale account?
AA potential customer sorry Mimi Fix can you help?
Kathy, we are not obligated to give out free samples to everyone interested in tasting our products. If you had a retail shop, any customer can first purchase a small cake or cupcakes. But if you bake from home or only bake to order, you can offer to sell them a small cake (if that's possible). If it's for someone who's interested in a large wedding cake, that's different. Do a search on CakeCentral to see the numerous threads and how this is handled. Good luck!
AThank you for your advise. I will definitely apply ie purchasing cupcakes or a small cake in place of free samples. I am still new at the cake decorating/selling business and the paper work side of things are all new to me. Cake Central is a god send. Thanks again.
