Chocolate mud cake Rss

Hi all,

I'm one of the "unfortunates" who is allergic to chocolate....

However I need to make a 21st cake for a friend and she wants a chocolate mudcake. I have NO IDEA how to make one cos I don't eat chocolate!!!

Does anyone have a great recipe that makes a nice moist, solid, lovely muddy mudcake??? I will want to ice it (with ganache or something like that) and then decorate it too so any ideas for a recipe for that stuff too would be great!

Thanking you all in advance smile

i made this one for my dh's birthday last month turned out to be really nice.. and it has chocolate ganache..
i cannot eat it either, though i'm told these ROCK!!

[u][b]Choc espresso flourless cake[/u][/b]
Serving size: Serves 8
Cooking time: Less than 60 minutes

This delicious recipe can be served warm with cream, or cold as a scrumptious snack. It is great for any occasion.


200g good quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa), chopped,
1 tablespoon strong prepared espresso coffee (for just chocolate cake use hot choc instead)
1 teaspoon brandy
2/3 cup (150g) caster sugar
150g unsalted butter, plus extra to grease the cake tin
3/4 cup (90g) almond meal
5 separated eggs
icing sugar for decoration


Preheat oven to moderate (180°C).

Place the chocolate, coffee or hot chocolate, brandy, caster sugar and butter in a heat-proof bowl and melt over a saucepan of water, stirring occasionally until chocolate and butter have melted.

Add almond meal and mix well with a wooden for 1½ minutes.

Using an electric beater beat in the egg yolks one at a time.

Beat the egg whites in another bowl until soft peaks form. Gently fold in the two mixtures together.

Pour into the cake tin and cook for 40 minutes or until the middle isn't gooey.

Cover the cake with foil if it browns too quickly. Let the cake cool in the tin before removing. Do not worry if the cake falls apart while taking it out of the tin.

Dust with icing sugar when the cake is cooled.

i'll do another post with the other...

lost the recipe, though, if you buy a toblerone or other flaky choc bar, put a little less than half of the mix in the cooking pan, layer the choc bar in, obviously crumbled, then the rest of the mix cook as per usual.

sucks when you rock at making them, but are not able to imbibe...
hope your friend enjoys.

mm this is my fave, if you want it high you need to make two cakes as it doesn't rise very much.

Has anyone done anything like this????????? Goodness knows what I was thinking...I just didn't think it through!!!!

I have made a simple chocolate cake.
You have just need condenser milk, sugar, purpose flour, baking soda, butter, baking powder and required water.
First, take a bowel then add all the ingredients and make smooth better than start the stove and put the cooker on heat, then put the some send in a cooker and on the send put the pot or bowel and filling it. Then close the cooker and slow down your heat temperature to 1 hour.
You get spongy and fluffy cake. If the cake that fell apart or broken cake, use ganache to seal the crack.
