    I really liked these. They really pack a chocolate punch! I would say that yes they're a lot like a mudcake in texture and denisty. I will be making them again!

  • Oops.  I misread carb soda

    Oops.  I misread carb soda and baking powder as half a teaspoon instead of half a tablespoon.  The result was a stodgy gooey mess, but tasted good.  Will have another go one day.
