     The Best Mud Cake Ever

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None
Servings   8 to 10 pieces
Preptime   1 hour

350 grams dark chocolate pieces
225 grams butter
600 ml water
3 eggs
400 grams castor sugar
400 grams self raising flour
Truffle Mixture, icing
120 grams dark chocolate pieces
100 grams butter
300 grams sifted icing sugar
4 tbsp double or whipping cream

Grease and line a 23cm or 9inch round cake tin. Preheat oven to 170C or 325F. Tip- Line tin with baking paper, this will make the cake easier to remove from the tin, no sticking to the sides. In a saucepan over low heat, heat chocolate, butter and water. Stir frequently until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
In a large bowl, lightly beat eggs. Gradually beat cooled chocolate mixture into eggs. Whisk sugar and flour into chocolate mixture, continue beating until smooth and well blended.
Pour mixture into cake tin. Bake for 45 minutes or until skewer inserted into centre of cake comes out clean. Please note- This mixture is quite runny, use a solid cake tin not a springform tin. When cake is cool, turn out onto wire rack. To make the truffle mixture 1.In a bowl over a pan of simme ring water melt chocolate, stirring frequently. 2. Cool slightly, then stir icing sugar, butter and cream until well blended.
Alternatives with this receipe- White Chocolate Mud Cake Replace dark chocolate with white chocolate Orange Mud Cake Can be made using either white or dark chocolate Replace water with freshly squeezed orange juice Hazelnut Mud Cake, this is my favourite Omit 50-100 grams flour and replace with ground hazelnuts (depending on how nutty you like your cake) Also add in 1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts Lemon Poppy Seed Mud Cake Replace dark chocolate with white chocolate Use 400 ml water and 200 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice Add a few drops of lemon essence and 1/4 cup poppy seeds You may add some grated lemon zest if you like a bit of extra tang Caramel Mud Cake Replace dark chocolate with white chocolate Replace castor sugar with brown sugar
Serving Suggestions
You should be able to get between 8 to 10 decent sized pieces out of the cake
