what is mud cake, exactly? - Page 2

post #16 of 55
It's just a way to get limited raising. To create the mud texture.

You can substitute the plain+SR Mixture with all plain/AP + a reduced amount of baking powder to what you'd usually use to make self-raising flour (2 tsps baking powder to 1 metric cup plain flour).

Life's too short to make cake pops.

Do you normally fill a mud cake?

Don't bite off more than you can chew.  One day you may not be able to swallow.

Need your help!   I tried a chocolate mud cake recipe twice from Nicko's Kitchen whick was displayed on u tube. The first one came out of the oven still wet and sloshy in the pan so I thought I did something wrong and tried again. But nope the second one came out the same way. I even tried baking it longer. Once done they came out like a Brownie. Definitely not cake like. Very heavy,thick Brownie. Is that how mud cakes are, Brownie like?

I tried Nickos Kitchen mud cake and it definitely came out like what we call a brownie.. didn't care for it. I think because I was expecting a dense moist cake. NOT BROWNIE. :(

I would say try another recipe. altho I have never heard of or tried that particular recipe,i would say mud cake does not taste or have the texture of brownies what so ever.i despise brownies for that simple reason,the texture.i hate that gooeyness just bleh!texture.I HATE BROWNIES!!!..but,i wouldn't say the texture of mud cake is again,any resemblance to a brownie..so just find another recipe.i am going to search later today and see if I can find the recipe I used,and post it here.maybe its the same,maybe its different..but don't give up!!

The recipe you have used -  has TWICE the amount of sugar in it as mine..... THIS fact alone would have made it like a brownie!!

I would love to try Pam's mud cake but could someone give me the ingredients in gram weights rather than cups. I know they differ from UK to US. Also, the recipe says to bake at 150?C What is the question mark referring to?

post #24 of 55
There are conversion charts online, to change volume to weight (or vice versa). Look around, and maybe you'll find a great recipe. I don't know that Pam shares her personal recipes.

The recipe is in my signature - the formatting of the recipe got 'corrupted' during one of the many CC 'upgrades'

There is a better TYPED version - with proper formatting - on my FB page..... ALSO IN MY SIGNATURE

I don't want to be rude linnod but can't think of a politer way of saying this......

 

You are given a recipe ....for FREE  -  ummm do what everybody else does.... WORK it out for yourself - for goodness sake it really isn't rocket science,  there are online converters everywhere - I even posted a whole host of tips for the recipe - it is here on CC - YOU can search for that.

Oh... and the ?????  - it was originally a DEGREE sign  - so it is BAKE AT 150degrees C  -  that 'C' stands for CELCIUS - it is what most of the world uses to measure temperature - you can also find temperature converters on line too

IF this is all too hard for you......  bake an American Brownie

Actually Linnod it's rude when people help you out and you call them RUDE instead of apologizing and thanking them for giving you their recipes.

No, No!  This is wrong.  There is a level of frustration you are not acknowledging.  I have been  following this thread from the beginning and have not posted until now.  The members have been trying to give you the benefit of their knowledge but at some point you just have to jump in with both feet and do some research on your own.  You will be better for it and learn much more than having every piece to a puzzle handed to you.

ApplegumPam is very generous with her time and always willing to share recipes. We should all be thankful that she's a regular member.

How was asking what the '?' was referring to being rude? I have little computer knowledge so I wasn't sure if there was some error in the post omitting more information.
Gosh I guess I can't ask a simple question without being attacked. I realize now it was just an error with the degree symbol being replaced with a '?' and I fully understand how to convert Fahrenheit to Celcius.


Regardless the belittling by ApplegumPam for asking a simple question was unnecessary to get their point across. Simply saying "That was supposed to be a degree symbol" would have been sufficient and neutral.

 

In the future I will just not ask "stupid" questions.
