    Chocolate Chunk Mudcake

    * 200g butter, chopped
    * 300g good-quality dark chocolate (I use Cadbury Cooking Chocolate)
    * 1/4 cup hot water
    * 1/4 cup cocoa powder
    * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    * 1 cup caster sugar
    * 3 eggs, lightly beaten
    * 3/4 cup self-raising flour
    * pure icing sugar, to serve

    1. Preheat oven to 160?C. Grease a 6cm deep, 20cm (base) round cake pan. Line with baking paper.
    2. Place butter, 200g chopped chocolate and hot water in a heatproof, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH (100%) for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every minute with a metal spoon, or until smooth. Add cocoa to warm chocolate mixture. Stir until smooth. Stir in vanilla, caster sugar and egg. Sift flour over chocolate mixture. Stir gently to combine.
    3. Pour half the batter into cake pan. Chop remaining chocolate and sprinkle half over batter. Top with remaining batter and chopped chocolate. Bake cake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre has moist crumbs clinging.
    4. Allow cake to cool completely in pan. Remove and dust with icing sugar. Serve.

    I tend not to use icing sugar on top, I buy a tub of Betty Crocker Frosting - so good!
    As for adding extra chocolate - it can make the cake sink in the centre, but tastes so good!

    Atop the lookout...


    This is the Mudcake recipe I always use, but I have never made it in to cup cakes, so I don't know how long to cook it for or at what temp. It is our favourite cake I think.

    Mississippi Mud Cake

    250g butter of margarine
    150g dark chocolate (dark cooking choc)
    2 cups sugar (i use white sugar)
    1 cup hot water
    1/3 cup whisky (this is the mississippi part!)
    1 tblsp dry instant coffee
    1 1/2 cups plain flour
    1/4 cup self raising flour
    1/4 cup cocoa powder
    2 lightly beaten eggs

    Grease and line a 23 cm square pan.
    Combine butter, chocolate, sugar, water, whisky and coffee in large saucepan over low heat.
    Stir in flours and cocoa, then eggs.
    (At this point, mine is always full of flour lumps, so I spoon and press the mixture through a strainer, and it turns out beautiful!)
    Pour into prepared pan.
    Bake in moderate slow oven for approximately 1 1/4 hours (test with skewer).
    Stand 10 minutes on wire rack before turning out.
    Serve dusted with icing sugar or covered in ganache icing and King Island Cream (the most lusciously thick cream around!). If you have any left over the day after, cut a slice, and microwave it for around 30 seconds. The ganache and cake melt a bit, and its wonderful!
