Tip

This cake is best eaten cold as it almost sets when it is cooling to a fudgy interior and chewy sugary crust. Just lovely.

Dust with icing sugar or top with chocolate icing to serve. This cake is wonderful as a rich, decadent dessert cake.

Use any flour you like. Self raising flour for a lighter cake, plain flour for a denser cake, gluten free flour for people with allergies or spelt flour for the extra protein.Use any sugar you like. I've used white sugar and rapadura sugar in this recipe and both work well.

    Submitted by ccgardens on 27. January 2017 - 05:03.

    I've made this recipe quite a few times now & it is well worth baking. As the cake is thin I use a greased floured springform pan to bake it. This way it releases easily & looks flawless. I've only ever served it plain & it gets rave reviews. The last time I baked it (served it warm to a friend who came over for coffee) I was 30g short of dark chocolate & it worked perfectly. This is my quick easy go to cake recipe.

    Submitted by PatinaM on 23. September 2016 - 18:10.

    Really yummy, thank you! I made brownies which were lovely but would definitely have benefitted from a smaller tin as the mixture doesn't rise much (I used GF flour). To make this lactose free would you use lactose free chocolate or alternatively cacao and extra sugar? If so, any ideas of quantities? Thanks in advance!!!

    Submitted by Power Penguin on 29. November 2015 - 09:07.

    Fantastic! I used a larger cake tin so it came out thinner which I think ended up being a bonus due to how nice and rich it was. I used Lindt 90% chocolate and it was great.

    Yum yum yum. Thank you for sharing. Easily devoured with some double cream. I used strawberries instead of raspberries, but will try next time with a coulis as suggested. I also used less sugar to feel a bit less guilty about such a divine cake!

    Hi,

    id like to make this as a sheet cake (making a minion themed birthday cake for my son so I need to use a rectangle tray) and because of this I can't use a 20cm cake tin, would this work if I multiplied the recipe by 4? Would this mean it would need to cook for 1.5hrs?

    Your suggestions will be most appreciated.

    TO DIE FOR!! i took this to a bbq when told not to bring anything. I made it last minute & when it came out of the oven I thought oh no I've done something wrong, but when I did the taste test I almost ate it all myself! Massive crowd pleaser served with cream & strawberries. A favourite for sure.

    I have been searching for a dense choc mud cake for so long, this everything I had wished for.

    After my first one, I loved it sooooo much that within the week I had to make 2 more, 1 with orange zest and 1 with hazelnuts. Delicious!

    Submitted by cookingwizard on 6. May 2015 - 16:06.

    This cake is wonderful.  I've made it four times now.  Once with plain flour and dark chocolate, three times with self raising and milk chocolate (as I ran out of dark). I also added one teaspoon of instant coffee to help bring out the chocolate flavour, it worked a treat. Dusted all of them with icing sugar only.  My favourite go to recipe for chocolate cake. It also freezes well and defrosts to perfection. Thanks for a lovely recipe

    Hi OscarJet as it mentions in the recipe you can use any flour you like. Self raising flour for a lighter cake, plain flour for a denser cake, gluten free flour for people with allergies or spelt flour for the extra protein. You can also use almond meal or other flours as it is such a small amount it doesn't affect the texture much at all. Enjoy!
