Dark Chocolate Mud Cake

Chocolate Mud Cake

"The only thing constant is change. But comfort is in being wrapped with familiar."

How do we bridge this gap, of being surrounded by our sense of the known as we tread towards the unknown, every passing day. Specially in today's times, as we face the trying times and turbulence, we can bring little nuggets of joy, through our food and kitchen. 

I love a good brownie and I love rich chocolate cake. And what happens when these two get combined in a sinful combination. Well this rich, dense, dark chocolate mud cake.

Honestly I came back to blogging because I missed my online diary, of recipes, of sharing and creating memories. It's so easy as well to just click on the website and find a recipe I loved and had made, than to browse through tons of notebooks. Specially when you are in the kitchen and inspired to make something. What about you? how do you like to save and find your favorite recipes?

I have been making this recipe for last 8 years, and it has always warmed my heart with its simplicity. But be sure to use really good quality chocolate, since that's what gives all the flavor to the cake.

Cadbury's Mud Cake Recipe

A dense chocolate cake, almost brownie like. I'm sharing recipe of small quantity, since its quite a rich cake. Double the recipe for larger amount)

Makes 6" cake
  • Butter - 125 gm, chopped
  • Brown Sugar - 1 cup 
  • Strongly Brewed Coffee - 3/4 cup
  • Dark Chocolate - 100 gm, Coarsely chopped (I used 70%)
  • Egg - 1 (Or 1/4 cup yogurt)
  • All purpose flour - 3/4 cup  + 2 tbsp
  • Baking Powder - 1/8 tsp
  • Salt - Pinch
  • Cocoa Powder - 1/8 cup 


  1. Preheat oven at 150C. Grease a 6" cake pan pan. Keep aside. 
  2. In a saucepan, add butter, sugar, coffee and chopped chocolate and let it all melt on medium heat. Keep stirring and do not let the mixture boil. Once sugar is dissolved and chocolate melts, remove from the heat and let it cool completely. You can keep in fridge to cool faster.

  3. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder and keep aside.

  4. Add egg to the cooled chocolate mixture. Beat well. Now add the flour mixture in 2 batches and fold well after each addition, till all the flour mix is well combined. 

  5. Pour this batter into the prepared cake tin and bake for about 50-60 mins, or till the tester comes clean from the centre of the oven.

  6. Let it cool, before removing from pan. Dust lightly with cocoa or icing sugar.
