Recipe's preparation

    Cake Mix
  1. 1. Add Chocolate to Thermomix Bowl and grate 5 Sec/Sp 8

    2. Add butter, coffee, Baileys, water and sugar and melt 4 Mins/ 50°/Sp 2

    3. Add flour, baking powder, Bi Carb Soda, Cacao Powder, Olive oil, milk, vanilla and mix 30 sec/sp 4-5. Scrape down sides of bowl.

    4. With blades running on Speed 3 add the eggs one at a time and mix for 1 minute

    5. Scrape down sides and mix for another 30 secs/Speed 4

    6. Pour mixture into greased and lined 21cm tin and bake at 160°C for 1 hour 30 mins - 1 hour 45 mins or until cooked - insert a skewer into the centre of the cake to test whether it is cooked through

    7. When cooked through, remove from oven and cover it with a clean tea towel and allow to cool in the pan.The top of the cake will have a crunchy crust (you may wish to trim off but I didn't bother). When the cake has cooled to room temperature, remove it from pan onto cake cooler. (Line under the cake cooler with baking paper ready to catch the drips from the ganache icing - this makes it much easier to clean up!!)


    1. Add chocolate to mixing bowl and grate 10 sec/speed 8

    2. Add cream and heat 2 min/50°C/speed 3. Allow ganache to cool and thicken before spreading over cake and refrigerate to allow to set before serving.

Accessories you need



This cake is inspired by Sarah71's Best Ever Chocolate Mudcake - https://www.recipecommunity.com.au/baking-sweet-recipes/the-best-ever-mud-cake/1dkmulwk-72b7d-307852-cfcd2-ir16m410.
However I have made it gluten free and reduced the size of mixture. You could use whatever liquer you like - Port would be nice or just use 100gms water if you prefer.
The cake is a very runny mixture so beware, if you use a springform pan, that it is well lined. On my blog 'Mixin' it Gluten Free' on Facebook there is a video of me making this cake.

    ncasorso: Hi I just checked the Baileys website and they state that all the ingredients used are GF. My bottle at home doesn’t list the ingredients but only has Milk listed for allergy advice. You could be missing out for no reason 😉😉
