♥ Ultimate Chocolate Mud Cake ♥

This is definitely the best chocolate cake I have ever made!
Adapted from Donna Hay's recipe, it just can't go wrong!

Decadently moist, rich, and fudgy. Topped with a thick layer of smooth chocolate ganache.

Moro or like a Devil cake, pick up the cake fork and dig in! Hmmm!

Make 20 cm round cake
You'll need:

For the cake:
250g unsalted butter
200g semi sweet chocolate
1 1/3 cup whole milk
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup self-raising flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder, more for dusting

For the chocolate ganache:
150g semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup whipping cream

To serve:
Chocolate ganache
Vanilla ice cream, optional

How to make the ultimate chocolate mud cake:
  1. Preheat oven to 150C. Grease a 20cm cake tin with melted butter, set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, combine butter, chocolate, milk and sugar. Heat under medium low heat until melted, about 6 minutes. Let the mixture cool slightly.
  3. Add vanilla, and eggs, whisk to combine.
  4. In another bowl, sift both kinds of flour and cocoa powder. Add the flours to the wet mixture and whisk to combine.
  5. Pour the batter into prepared cake tin, bake for 1 hour and 25-30 minutes, or until the cake is set. Check the cake after 1 hour and if the top starts to crack, cover with aluminum foil and continue to bake.
  6. Let cool completely.
  7. Meanwhile, heat whipping cream over low heat until simmer. Pour into chocolate chips and let sit for 5 minutes. Stir, to form a smooth ganache.
  8. Serve with chocolate ganache and vanilla ice cream.
With all my love <3
