I know I didn't officially "sign up" to participate, but I really wanted to try a mudcake so I made the caramel recipe posted in this thread.
I really don't taste the "caramel" flavor at all in the cake itself...the icing was awesome (I added some kosher salt to it to make it a salted caramel icing) but the cake by itself is just sort of, well....bland.
Do you taste a caramel cake when you just eat the cake without the icing?
I didn't freeze it, so maybe that's the problem. It's moist and it rose evenly in the pan, but it's not at all what I imagined a "mudcake" to be. It's day 4 today and it's still as moist as it was on day 1 or 2 but nobody is "digging in" to it as I thought they would. Oh well....
To me the texture is no different than some of my regular scratch cakes.
All this time I've been thinking that a mudcake's texture would be similar to a flourless torte....nope.
I intend to try Pam's recipe next if this damn hurricane doesn't take my power away.
