Delicious and decadent, this white chocolate mud cake is simply the best. With a delicious white chocolate ganache, it’s a great occasion cake!
I love experimenting with recipes that I haven’t tried before. But some recipes I sort of pop in the ‘too hard basket’ and making mud cakes seems to be in that category for me! I have tried lots of cakes that claim to be mud cakes but are really just moist cakes or rich cakes, lovely but not dense mud cakes! So it is with that in mind that I decided to experiment with white chocolate mud cakes after coming across a stash of white chocolate left over from my Christmas Baking!
This recipe is really really simple, strange but simple and I have found similar recipes in many places online. It results in a lovely dense but moist mud cake that holds that gorgeous white chocolate almost caramelly flavour.
But I have to be honest the winner in the whole deal is definitely the icing – this white chocolate ganache is so easy and just gorgeous! I played around with the quantities to get it just right and it is delicious! So creamy and rich it was worth the experimenting. Just like normal chocolate ganache it uses just chocolate and cream and is delightful! You leave it to cool in the fridge until it comes to the right consistency for what you are using it for – filling cakes and piping it will need to be left longer but icing cakes it can be still pouring consistency but slightly like peanut butter if that makes sense! Just keep stirring and checking on it until you are happy with it.
Without further ado as I realise you are here for the recipe not my waffling here it is, enjoy & let me know how you get on.
