Since we're having dinner at my parents house tonite, i thot of bringing something different. Wanna try my hands on making 'Chocolate Mud Cake'. The recipe is easy, its from one of the 'Australian Women's Weekly' - March 2002 edition.
250g butter, chopped
200g dark chocolate, chopped
2 cups (440g) caster sugar
1 1/3 cups (330ml) water
1 tablespoon dry instant coffee
3/4 cup (110g) plain flour
3/4 cup (110g) self-raising flour
1/4 cup (25g) cocoa powder
3 eggs, beaten lightly
Combine the butter, chocolate, sugar, water and coffee in a medium saucepan; stir over a low heat, without boiling, until the butter is just melted and the mixture is smooth. Transfer chocolate mixture to a large bowl, allow to cool for 10 minutes.
Preheat the oven. Whisk the combined sifted plain and self-raising flours and cocoa into the chocolate mixture in two batches, then whisk in the eggs. Pour mixture into the prepared pan.
Bake in a slow oven for about 1 3/4 hours. Cover the cake pan with foil; cool cake in pan. This is how it looked like after baking.
*Please note that i only use 1 cup of sugar (cut-down d sweetness)...so far, it taste okey.
After dinner, i cut-out the mud-cake in squares. For dessert, i scooped out a few scoops of vanilla ice-creams, topped it on top of the mud-cake....TADA!!! U can also add some chocolate toping....yum...yum...
My personal verdict. I don't tink i like mud cake cos i think its a bit solid.
