Another issue could have been that the tin was too small? I haven’t made it for ages but I really need to change that! You can’t taste it. and i have a normal working oven so i dont understand why this did not work. It looked amazing after doing the cake decorating course and everyone at work said it was incredible and the most delicious cake they’ve had! The cake is ready when a skewer inserted into the centre comes out with some moist crumbs sticking to it but not any raw cake batter. The chili taste should not be dominant, but leave a little burning sensation to the mouth. Seriously decadent and a recipe not to be rushed! I am just not used to baking on fan bake and it scares me a bit!! Layla I’m not sure what went wrong here. The only thing I can think of is that the chocolate might have burnt in the initial stages when you were melting it with the butter, water and sugar. I had never baked a mud cake before, this was my first and it turned out perfectly!!! The frosting wasnt as set as yours (or maybe I was too impatient ???) Raspberry coulis between layers? Have never enjoyed licking a cake bowl so much. Hi Melissa. I think reducing the butter would change the cake a lot. If they’re still quite wet then give them another 10 but if they’re just a little bit under-done just check every 5 mins. They redecorated it and served it to us like we wouldn’t notice (it looked completely different!). Sorry you didn’t like it. As my friend has just had a baby (1 week old) I substituted the coffee with decaf espresso, and as my household is wheat intolerant I used spelt flour instead of normal flour too. Hello Claire, The recipe and the photos look delicious! LOL no commission all for love. A couple questions: What size springform is this recipe designed for (it just says small)? Wanted to pick your brain Claire….if you happen to be a coffee lover and actually DO want some stronger coffee flavour, can you add in more coffee to concentrate the 375ml of water without upsetting the overall balance? Thank you so much!!! I made this cake exactly as per the recipe and I loved it! Also I want to make 2 layers with a raspberry filling, is it possible to divide the cake batter in 2 or do you suggest I make twice as much. If you put it in the fridge it will harden but I like to leave it at room temperature. Hi Claire do you know if I could make that cake a day in advance? This is the first time I have ever bothered to comment on a recipe but just had to add that this truly is the best ever mud cake! It turned out really well after I was worried about the batter. So glad you like it! Tasted just like a proper mud cake. Thanks :). Cake was a huge hit! Hi Michelle, Thank you! Hi Sarah. Best baking success I have had in a while! I found it to be very sticky, thick and it kind of just glugged together… didn’t ‘pour’ into the cake tin, I had to physically scoop out every little bit of it and pat it down…. Thank you :). I wasn’t a big fan of the icing and still think ganache would have been better but still, this chocolate cake is so amazing and moist, I will make this each and every time I need a chocolate cake. Thanks for your time and help in advance. I just expected you to be in the US! As the most experienced with the recipe, could you give me tips on how to adapt it to please kids and adults? Is the oven working correctly? icing for this cake is lovely its thick but not firm is that how it suppose to be, bit confused. Butter paper and dust pans with flour, knocking out excess. Worked perfectly! No I didn’t keep mine in the fridge. When I’ve cooked it this size I’ve split it in two and baked them individually then joined the two with icing. oops. Excellent recipe! You can make it 2-3 days in advance. I am beginner to baking and I am wondering for the Dark Chocolates, should they be unsweetened or semi-sweetened. I also noticed a eggy taste upon first tasting of the cake once cooled, but did not notice it the next day of eating. Hi! It is even low on dishes and doesn’t require any electric mixing equipment etc. I’m not sure about the gas oven. I’m glad it was such a success. Would you be able to give me an estimate of how high the cake part ends up in a 25cm tin (without the icing on it)? A – Yes indeed you could make it in two loaf tins. Thanks for all your help and for posting this recipe. Hi. I would probably just use a teaspoon and yes you could add it at the same time. Hi claire. Hi Claire! I only have 100% natural cocoa powder (the cheap brand in au). Now I’m scheming to get my hands on some chocolate. Goodluck! Hi Leighanne. Thank you. It will thicken as time goes on and get nice and glossy. Thanks so much for all the extra tips. do i just need to make sure the mixture is half way in the pan and how much shorter would i bake it for. Sounds like it was fabulous. Salted caramel filled chocolate cake - Happy Birthday to me! Is there anyway to avoid it? I think nutella has been done to death. I know it’s a big call but I can confidently say that (edit: and if you read the comments you’ll see others agree!). cake AND brownie in one, crunchy part was nearly the best bit! Even though I switched ovens as the leaked batter was burning onto the bottom of my oven and making the oven smoky, and the second oven I put the cake into probably wasn’t quite up to temperature, the cake still turned out perfectly! I’ve never made it in a square tin but that’s a very good tip thank you. If you want to make it in a larger tin you’ll need to increase the recipe. Thanks :-), This cake looks AMAZING, I am just wondering do you have quantity amounts and cooking times for larger pans? It has everything I expected in a chocolate cake: it’s soooo moist and full of flavour and creamy …. It turned out beautifully – with a crispy top!! So glad you like it and thanks for your lovely comments! Thanks Claire for your wonderful recipe…it’s one of the quickest and easiest I’ve ever tried too.. Yay! Put the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt if using in a 12-ounce microwave-safe … Lol! The chocolate is the only thing I can think of with regards to the flavour as it can make a big difference. i have just calculated if i did anything wrong with the ingredients. Hi Tatum. That has only happened to me when I’ve moved it before it has cooled though. It’s personal preference. (like a cup of coffee). She had had a few drinks and apparently got a bit possessive of the cake- one poor boy wasn’t allowed some because she “didn’t know him well enough” (he was a friend’s boyfriend). Or use a different type of coffee? Good luck! I’ve no idea who you are Claire K but I stumbled upon your blog, made your cake and it was unbelievable! I was also thinkig some salted caramel on top but don’t want to overdo it. Love, love, love! Will definitely be making again. It’s my birthday tomorrow and I want to make my self a dark chocolate mud-cake with raspberries. could that play a role. And I’m also confused about the 20 to 30 mins part? :). Good luck! I’ve tried just adding it and I ended up with little lumps of coffee. It would work in any smaller tin just not a larger one. Cake in oven, hope it turns out a yum as everyone elses. Hi Monica, Thanks for trying the chocolate cake! To me if a recipe is so fussy that a different size pan throws it off, it’s not a good recipe. Enjoy! i attempted this recipie and it didnt work out at all. Rich, sinful, decadent and heavy. Should it smell off coffee once baked? it’s dreamy …. Good tip on the Nespresso. Turned out perfect…an absolute hit… My new go to recipe for a divine ..decadent chocolaty treat. How did it turn out? I made a square one and it was a huge hit for my sons 9th birthday yesterday and today I’ve also made 22 cupcakes from the same recipe..yum yum yum!

I had to leave before she had it, but took a slice with me. Don’t alter/add/adapt ingredients, don’t use a different size pan, and I highly suggest everyone use an oven thermometer to make sure their temp isn’t off (because a lot of ovens are).

I saw your recipe and all these good comments and decided to made it for my friends’ birthday. I’m sure it will be perfect and your husband will love it! Hi Claire, I currently have this cake cooking in the oven. Where the *&^% does it say to mix the coffee with water?? Oh! Mmmmm heaven! No problem Cindy! I haven’t had that happen but I’m glad the improvised icing worked out ok. Or do you think maybe my oven was too hot? Sounds wonderful Sarah. Thanks for sharing this recipe! Just check on it a bit earlier in the bigger tin. Yes you can put fondant on top of the icing although I haven’t tried it. Hi Alesha. My chocolate craving buster of choice is this keto chocolate mug cake. I had trouble knowing where one ended and the other began. Followed to a T and best mud cake I have ever eaten! Once everything is combined, pour the batter into the tin. I’ve tried it in a few different tins and made cupcakes with it. Any other accessory flavours ‘in fashion’ that work well with the chocolate? Can’t wait to try this mud cake :) !! I am making it for my boyfriend’s birthday tomorrow. I saw the guy take the cake out of the box then… promptly drop it upside down on the bench. Smells divine! cooking chocolate) * dash of cream * 1 Tablespoon of Kahlua * 1/4 cup of plain flour * 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder Ganache. It still tasted delicious! Thanks a lot Claire for your reply. I did a test cake for my daughters birthday and now am onto the real thing for her party! Hi Claire I’ve just put the cake in the oven. I havn’t made it before. I’ve never made frosting like that before will have to give it a go!! Otherwise I fear it might burn on the outside before it cooks through. It really is a delicious cake isn’t it? I make it with either a white chocolate or dark chocolate ganache. If I ice the cake tonight, do I just leave it sitting out overnight or put it in the fridge? Using a 20 I would probably bake half the batter at a time and layer it together or you might risk it burning on the outside and not cooking through. * 180g butter (preferably continental unsalted butter, but regular salted butter works fine) * 180g sugar (90% castor sugar, 10% dark brown sugar) * 4 eggs * 240g milk chocolate melts (or equiv. Hi Emma. Hi Shiree. ♡♡♡. That said, my improvised icing worked and the cake tasted very good next day :-). I thought it was pretty hilarious. Could it be because of the strong coffee ( i added 2 tsps of coffee powder to 375 ml of hot water) or the extra 3tbsps of cocoa powder or the dark chocolate (with 45% cocoa)? To make the ganache, melt the ingredients together, stirring occasionally, in a heatproof bowl set … Thanks heaps, Claire! Hi, this looks amazing but I am wanting an orange chocolate mudcake. Thank you for this recipe!! I just keep it in an air tight container but it can also be frozen wrapped in plastic wrap and aluminium foil. Yes I would say you can just concentrate the coffee more. I will have parts of the cake spare once the whole thing is finished, am thinking of making the spare bits into cake pops! Hi Evelyn. (http://foodzeit.blogspot.com/2013/08/double-chocolate-mud-sourc-ream-ganash.html). Is that the correct consistency? This muc cake is absolutely AMAZING and made a huge success on New Year’s eve. I made this cake for my friend’s birthday last week… IT WAS DELICIOUS!!! It should be a hit at my brothers 18th party. I did try cutting it in half, but it did not work out. The icing is ok to pipe too as long as it’s not too hot. I do love ganache but sometimes it can be a bit rich even to me. Q – Have you ever baked smaller sizes? Firstly I am planning on making a sheet cake (probably going to cook 2 half sheets and lay side by side, and then do another layer on top – there’s a lot of people at this 60th!) It’s great because you can make the cake in advance and even freeze it if you like. I hope you give it another go. Wonderful recipe, thank you so much for sharing :). Thanks so much. Googled a few different ones and this one seems to be the winner! Anyone cooked this in a Gas Oven, as have new gas oven and not sure what to expect. I usually add a heaped tablespoon of coffee granules. Very good question Krystie. It just adds extra oomph to the chocolate but you can’t taste it. I highly recommend best eaten at room temperature when smidgy and gooey. I now realise I need a recipe just like yours for an 8 inch pan though :( Still struggling to find something of similar quality, as I’m not very good at recipe conversion :) Wish me luck! Glad you like the cake! Husband & kids loved it. Should the coffee be in liquid form? I have an 8″ round cake tin and a 12″ round cake tin and would love to bake this in there but being a novice baker am really unsure on how to increase the quantities and cooking time. If so, would I need to line the tins or just grease them? If you can’t get that then I would replace a little of the chocolate with Nutella. Hope you like it! Hi Claire, I’m considering making this cake for my Aunt’s 60th birthday next weekend, and I have a few questions. So glad you liked it Erika. I wondered what your thoughts are on using gluten free plain flour? Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar … Very easy recipe, fingers crossed for a perfect result! Hi Shannon. Welcome to Australia! Thanks, Renee. Whisk together the eggs and the two sugars until thoroughly mixed. I just wanted to say a huge thank you for this recipe, it was delicious! It turned out perfectly and everyone loved it! Stir into a smooth paste and set aside. Did you use salted or unsalted butter for the cake? I’ve never heard of that but I guess it would be lovely and moist and rich in that time. I’d strongly advise lining them as well as greasing them. Hi there, I was wanting to make a choc mud cake for one of my friends for his birthday and was wondering if i double the batter if it needs extra cooking time? I usually eat half of it. I’m so glad you liked it! This is my husbands request for his birthday in two days. Yes probably best to make a little extra icing.

Best chocolate cake ever and so easy to make. The cakes were cooked perfectly after approx 1hr 20 mins they didnt sink nor did they burn or crack. Whisk in the cocoa powder, then the boiling water. Was going to just buy one, but decided to make one instead, searched the web, found this sensationally delicious looking mud cake! I found your recipe easy to follow, I think the faults that I had were that of my own! To freeze wrap in plastic wrap then in aluminium foil. Sounds like it’s not a good one for doubling unfortunately. If so, would I need to line the tins or just grease them? The cake was really good. Hi Claire! I made the cake the first time. Will repost in an hour with the result.

So glad you liked it and thank you for sharing! this is my favourite cake ever. Don't forget to check your email and click on the link to simplify your dinner times. The question is, do you think this could be used as a wedding cake, and if not do you know of any recipes to recommend for that purpose? My preference is to use a 70% Dark Chocolate or I’ll sometimes use a Sugar Free Dark Chocolate, however that often requires a trip to the Health Food Store, whereas I can buy the 70% Dark Chocolate one from the supermarket when I do my regular shop.. Do you think any of this will work? Thank you! My mouth is watering so bad. Baked this cake tonight and im really quite concerned something went wrong, and im just not sure what. Haha it’s way too good isn’t it! Was it cool? Glad you at least got a little bit :-). If it starts to look a bit brown on top cover it with foil. I would probably make a chocolate buttercream for the middle and maybe stick a couple of skewers through the two layers just to make sure they hold. Thank you for sharing. I was also wondering if peppermint flavour would work instead of the coffee? I’m sorry it’s not working out for you. Only takes 25 minutes at 180℃! Hi Frankie.

Just doubled this cake batter up by 2 with my daughter. Add the sugar to the pot and stir it in until it has dissolved too. I made this tonight as a test run for my wife’s bday. I’m so glad it was a hit although that’s no good that you didn’t get any. Rather than double the recipe in one batch, I would recommend making a single cake (start checking on it at about the 40-45 minute mark as it will cook faster) and then make a second one and sandwich them together. You can also make the cake up to 3 months in advance and freeze it. Meringue frosting sounds delicious! Only one question though. Have to have small portion as is extremely rich, high in sugar and shows on the waistline (I already knew what I was getting myself in to upon reading of the ingredients list *chuckles :) Anyway, next time I might try the batter by 1 only lol Thank you anyway. Thanks for your reply! Looks like this has to be the next offering for our guests arriving at Haven Homestay on the weekend! It’s a seriously good cake! Thank you so much Claire!

I intend to leave it to cool overnight – wrap it in cling film and foil and freeze for a week. I’ve been searching for the best choc mudcake recipe for ever.

I didn’t get to taste the cake but it received rave reviews! Thank you!! The guests liked it very much, much to my regret, there was nothing left. I send you an email but I’d just keep it in an airtight container on the bench. Such an incredible cake. Hi Dinuka. Just tasted the cake and I find it very rich………I do also wonder if you have to keep this cake in the fridge ??? What are the measurements of the tin?

Q – I wanted to know if this tastes strongly of coffee as we don’t really like coffee but we love a good chocolate mud cake. Hi Renee. It’s funny, because I baked it at 160, not even 180, like on the recipe…. Yes the cake needs to come out of the oven to cool otherwise it will continue to cook which is why it was rock solid. Great!
