  • 200 g water
  • 340 g plain flour

Recipe's preparation

  1.  Preheat oven to 150c Grease and line a deep 23cm round tin Place chocolate, butter, coffee, sugar and water in TM bowl 3 mins 30c speed 2 Add remaining ingredients (except eggs) mix 30 secs sp4-5.with blades running just below sp 3, add the eggs, mix for 1 min Scrap sides and then another 30secs sp 4 Pour mixture into prepared pan. Bake for about 1 hour and 30minutes. Insert a thin-bladed knife or wooden skewer into the centre of the cake to test whether it is cooked through. When cooked through, remove cake from oven, cover with a clean tea towel and allow to cool in the pan. When the cake has cooled to room temperature, remove it from the pan. The top surface of the cake will probably have a crunchy crust, which you may wish to trim off. We turn the cake upside down to give a flat surface for icing. Make ganache. Chocolate and cream in tm 2 mins 50c speed 3 Allow to cool before spreading ganache over cake then refrigerate.

    All baked up and popped into the freezer.

    I found it pretty straight forward and I am not a baker. Baking did take a little longer but isn't an issue.

    The only thing I changed was cut back the sugar to 350gms and I used an espresso shot as we don't do instant coffee here.

    I have made this 3 times now and has been a success each time even made it using GF flour also turned out great. The last one i made using Kahlua liquor and a double shot of esspresso coffee to make up the 200g liquid needed. The flavour was liked by all.
    I did wrap a thick wet tea towel around the cake tin too bake I found that this gave me a really flat top, and not so crusty

    I have made this cake a zillion times and it has NEVER failed me. I have substituted some of the water for liqueurs and they’ve got rave reviews. This Eeyore cake was probably 4 batches. It was huge!! It freezes beautifully and holds up brilliantly under fondant. Can’t thank you enough for this recipe!!

    My Aunty told me it was the best mud cake she has tasted so thank you for the recipe!! It was a fabulous Baptism cake!

    I only changed one thing and that was to use Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate rather than dark chocolate. I cooked for an extra 15 minutes also.

    Thank you so much for this beautiful recipe it will be used for all birthdays.

    Submitted by faimus83 on 17. October 2017 - 22:15.

    I halved the recipe, used GF flour (Simply WIse one - only just found this one... it gives a similar texture to Gluten recipes... really nice taste) and used a few subs, like almond milk and combination of chocolate. Also used half the sugar. The cake still took ages to cook... and then I forgot about it as it took soooo long. However tastes pretty good. Thanks.
    I didn't do the icing.

    Submitted by ButaFly on 1. January 2017 - 22:03.

    This cake is wonderful.

    I made this for hubby's birthday and it turned out great. I didn't have butter at room temp so used hot water from the kettle, reduced sugar to 190g and it took longer to cook. Once cooked ans whilst cool enough to slice the hard top off I poked with a skewer then poured liquor (about two shots worth) all over and let it sit over night before decorating.

    Husband loved it.

  • perfect cake, ganache however

    Submitted by Eve TM5 on 28. November 2016 - 20:49.

    perfect cake, ganache however didn't come together with the Lindt  70% dark chocolate, may be a less chocolatey chocolate would be better suited... After adding butter and sugar (bit by bit while blades running at 50degr) it turned out very nicely and spreadable, yet set in the fridge. 

    Thanks for the recipe!

    This was an amazing cake thank you! With the ganache it didn't melt when I microwaved the cake..did I do something wrong? the ganache set perfectly on the cake. I always thought ganache would melt when you warmed up the cake.  Anyone know of a ganache that melts when the cake is microwaved?
