Happy New Year to all my friends. This is going to be my last post of 2013, obviously. I was very lazy today and was not in a mood to do anything, not even baking. Suddenly I changed my mind. I decided to bake a cake at the very last moment. And so I’m posting this at the very last moment of the year.
Here’s is simple cake yet again…CHOCOLATE MUD CAKE.
I wanted this cake to look extraordinarily beautiful. But nothing worked out as intended. White chocolate ditched me. “2” is sinking. All those stories later.
I’ll be soon updating this post with the recipe, but till then excuse me.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to ALL once again. Hope to see you all with new and refreshing recipes in the coming year. InShaAllah.

Maida – 2 cups
Cocoa powder – ½ cup
Baking soda – 1 teaspoon
Unsalted butter – 250 gms (cut into small cubes)
Dark chocolate – 250 gms (grated)
Coffee powder – ½ – ¾ tablespoon
Boiling water – ¾ cup
Sugar – ½ cup
Eggs – 3
Dark chocolate – 200 gms
Fresh cream – ½ cup
Grease a 9/10 inch cake tin with butter and line it with parchment paper or dust it with a little cocoa+flour mixture. Pre-heat the oven to 175°C.
Take a medium sized bowl. Mix sugar, coffee powder and boiling water. Mix well till the sugar dissolves. Set aside
Take a big wok. Melt butter and dark chocolate in it. Stir slowly till chocolate melts completely. Now you will have a glossy mixture. Transfer it to a big bowl and add the coffee mixture of the Step 1. Mix well till you get a slight creamy texture. Let it cool.
Sift maida, cocoa powder and baking soda. Fold it in the above mixture without any lumps. Now add eggs one at a time and mix it well. Transfer it to the prepared cake tin and bake for about 50 – 55 minutes.
When the cake is done, invert it on a wire rack and let it cool down completely.
Grate the chocolate and place it in a bowl. Boil fresh cream and pour it onto the grated chocolate. Let it stand for 2 minutes. Now mix well and pour it over the top of the cake. Place a large bowl under the wire rack to collect the chocolate dripping.( you can lick it later)
Finally transfer the cake onto a wide plate. You’re done. Now attacking the cake is all you have to do.
