That seems like an awful lot of fat and sugar. Are you sure you have the amounts correct OP?

harrislucinda, Aug 6, 4:15am
most of these recipes say 250 grm butter so maybe have the wrong amount

It's a roasting dish size

Dear elliehen. I had no part in creating or posting of this recipe. It is plain for all to see that it is not a recipe that would make it into the heart of any Paleo person, nor, for that matter anyone trying to go low carb.

I have been looking up mud cakes to see the relative ingredient percentages and I notice that for every 1½ cups of flour 250gms of butter is usual.

This recipe has 3½cups of flour so actually 500gms of butter is a little under the odds. One had 2 cups of caster sugar for half the amount of flour so the sugar is even low in this recipe.

I made it once, for a wedding cake, about 20 years ago. It was a rave way back then . It was a big cake.
You won't find it anywhere else on the net.
I would no more make it these days than fly to the moon.
We were darned lucky to have worked with SUGAR for so long and come away unscathed. Cake marg was being pushed, that we avoided yuck!

I understand fully about the push for sweet stuff, 2 daughters one lot of grandchildren won't hardly touch sweet, the others children crave it. I have got it sorted. I will take the lollies off one family before they visit, hand them back when they leave. No problem.

Like you pornographic link posted in the wardrobe thread? Yeah - right. One rule for you and another for others. I hope you have asked TM to remove it that obscenity pronto.

Here is another interesting one, how many posts of this recipe has been posted word for word.

Easy Healthy Bread

1 Cup plain flour
1 Cup wholemeal flour
1 Cup rolled oats
1 1/2 tsp salt

Mix above dry together.

Mix wet together to dissolve.

1 tsp honey
1 1/4 Tsp honey
2 tsp yeast

Add dry mix to wet mix.
Mix well.

Spray oil around loaf tin and line with baking paper then add dough. Spray top with oil and leave to rise for 30 or so mins.

Bake 180 for 35 to 40 mins.

Be warned! This IS A WET DOUGH !
I find if I wet my hands first, I can get the dough into the loaf tin without sticking to my hands.

I add sunflower seeds and raisins to the dry mix and its wonderful. This one you can add what ever to!

flower-child01, did you ever try this one which was posted for you?

No. I meant to address it to you, based on your referencing this cake in a post you made in Health and Beauty using the quote function. I said there that I found your connections between my making butter, margarine, low carb, me and this recipe weird. I needed to clarify the issue before others believed this was a low carb recipe and that I had something to do with it.

I give recipes I have baked in the past and which have nothing to do with my current lifestyle. The same as one poster in here who drank just juice for 2 months and still drinks juice daily, gives recipes that, if she is to be believed, no longer makes, or rather shouldn't be eating.

Actually I still bake sometimes as others for whom I cook sometimes, have a distorted view of what makes a nice meal and they do need to be catered for, especially if I am the hostess.

I also cleared up your fallacy that the butter and sugar content of the recipe was wrong. It is a mud cake, not a chocolate cake, per se, and therefore ratios of ingredients will necessarily be different.

buzzy110, Aug 6, 5:25am
Actually it had no such warning. I thought there might have been links to paleo lifestyle that you would not want anyone to see. I just hope you have the thread removed asap. It is a family show after all. Imagine my surprise when I saw you had been dabbling in softcore porn.

Oh, I'm sure someone will report it just for fun eh!

elliehen. I found a nice holiday spot for you. see you next year.

Next holidays, holiday in the Sunrise Valley, just over four kilometres from the nearest main road. Sunrise is surrounded by forest and farm land, the peace and tranquil atmosphere lend itself perfectly to the enjoyment hens and cockrels.

Go into Yahoo and they have a "2 Minute mudcake " recipe,
cooked into a coffee mug. I have just copied it
Looks EASY PEASY to me.

buzzy110, Aug 22, 1:38am
Pickles is this mudcake sturdy enough to be used in the creation of a child's birthday cake?

pickles7, Aug 22, 3:03am
Try this one. buzzy

put the wet ingredients in

2 cups water
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cups oil

griffo4, Aug 22, 4:11am
l have made this about 9 times and it is a sturdy cake we made it into a lopsided 3 tier cake and it held together very well
l made 9 cakes while we were going through designs for the cake and we were all over it by the time we had finished
lt was from a blog l think it was Rosa's one and l can't remember her blog but someone will Maybe Mrs Cake?

Chocolate Mud Cake (makes 30cm round cake)
325g sugar
500g butter, cut into chunks
500g milk chocolate chips
750ml boiling water
325g flour
75g cocoa
20g baking powder
5 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 160 C, and grease a 30cm round cake tin (if you’re using a spring form tin put a tray underneath, as the batter is thin and can drip).

Put sugar, butter and chocolate chips into a very large bowl, and pour the boiling water over the top. Stir to combine all ingredients. When everything is melted and combined, add all the remaining ingredients, and beat until smooth. Pour into cake tin and place in oven.

Cooking time will vary depending on your oven, but check after 50 minutes, and continue to check every 5-10 minutes until it’s done. You can tell if it’s cooked when a knife inserted into the cake comes out with a cakey-looking substance, as opposed to a batter-looking substance. If your knife comes out clean you’ve cooked it for too long.

After you remove the cake from the oven, leave it to cool for at least an hour before turning it out of the pan, as it will be very fragile while still warm.

Chocolate Ganache Icing
250ml cream
400g milk chocolate, broken into small pieces

Scald the cream in a saucepan on the stove (take it off the heat as soon as it shows signs of boiling). Add the chocolate and transfer into a bowl. Stir gently until all chocolate is melted. If necessary dip bowl into a saucepan of boiling water for a few seconds to help any remaining pieces melt.

Cool until spreadable, then use to ice cake.

sounds awesome, my husband will love it.

griffo4, Aug 22, 8:09am
thanks elliehen l thought it was her recipe and it is very nice

pickles7, Aug 22, 9:59pm
Anyone got the 'Chocolate Mud Cake' recipe, made with Mayonnaise ? I did have one, it is hiding.

buzzy110, Aug 22, 11:18pm
Thanks heaps pickles and griffo. Saved into my children's cakes file for future reference.

cookessentials, Aug 22, 11:21pm
great choc mayo cake on the cakes thread.

pickles7, Aug 22, 11:22pm
Why not make this, with the white chocolate sauce, looks nice and you could report back.
The wedding cake I made was covered in gold leaf it was stunning.

buzzy110, Aug 23, 3:24am
All suggestions greatly appreciated. I was really just looking for a cake that is sturdy enough to make children's cakes with; one that could be sculptured and take a bit of abuse and support all the stuff that goes into cake decorating. Once I have one that ticks all the boxes I'll probably stick with that.

The wedding cake you made sounds amazing.

Fruit loops are lighter, to use as decorations. buzzy
By joves I tasted one the other day, went back for another I could not believe how sweet they really are. Shame on anyone feeding those to a wee toddler. shame on my daughter in law, she was complaining her little one was grazing all day, it was plain to see it started at breakfast time. Nana walked in at the right moment. zapped.
