Mudcake is a very dense cake, almost fudgey - it doesn't rise very much - and is usually made with chocolate in the recipe, and with ingredients melted together rather than creamed butter and sugar as a normal cake has. Regular chocolate cake should rise and be lighter and less rich. :-)

MISSISSIPPI MUD CAKE. Makes a deep 30cm square. (large cake)
1.5kg dark choc buttons
1 kg butter
3/4 cup instant coffee powder dissolved in.
3&1/2 cups warm water
3 cups caster sugar
4 cups plain flour
1 cup SR flour
1/2 cup of liqueur any flavur you like.
6 beaten eggs
1tsp salt.
METHOD.
melt buttons in a large Pyrex jug in the microwave, 1 minute bursts, stir well.
Cream butter and sugar, beat in the eggs
You will need a really large bowl for the mixing the rest together.
Fold all other ingredients in gradually.
Pour into a well lined tin. Bake @ 150 C for 2-3 hrs.
During the last 20mins or so, I place a folded damp T-towel over the nearly cooked cake to prevent a cracked crust to form.
Allow the cake to COMPLETELY cool, before tipping out of the tin
Ice with gnache.
Keeps well and pieces can be warmed in the microwave and served with cream or icecream.
1/2 the recipe will probably give you a 20cm cake.
WARNING. this cake does not earn the Heart Foundation tick
