Chocolate mud cakes should come with a warning, something like “Do not make me if you have to share me”. Mud cakes are irresistably so good that you will want to keep it all to yourself. So I didn’t keep it all to myself because sharing is caring and all that, I made it when a friend came over on the weekend. It was easy to whip together and then it happily cooked away in the oven while I tidied the house up.
This chocolate mud cake will serve you well as a dessert. It is easily made gluten-free by swapping the normal plain flour for gluten-free.
It is best enjoyed warm with a side of cream or ice cream if you are feeling really indulgent.
Note: I made this in the Bellini Supercook but have included conventional instructions as well.
375gm Dark Chocolate Melts
125gm Butter, chopped
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Plain Flour (you could use gluten-free)
