Today’s recipe is Mississippi’s famous Chocolate Mud Cake. This cake is an absolute delight for chocolate lovers. Personally, I love this cake because of its texture. The texture of this famous Chocolate mud cake is exactly like its name.
The most important ingredient in this recipe is Chocolate. So the quality of the chocolate really matters here. I prefer my bakes with moderate sweetness and that is why I have used 55% chocolate. You can choose chocolate as per your taste but make sure you are using baking/cooking chocolate only.Without wasting much time, let’s get started!

How to make a Chocolate Mud Cake
In a saucepan, take 180 ml water and 100 gm sugar. Start cooking it and keep stirring. When the sugar starts dissolving, add 110 gm butter. When the butter starts melting, add the coffee solution. Stir it.Add 100 gm chopped chocolate and start whisking. The chocolate will start melting because of the heat. Continue to cook this solution on medium flame only else the chocolate can burn. Once the chocolate melts completely, add cocoa powder and whisk it. Now switch off the flame and let this mixture come to room temperature.
Now in a mixing bowl, take 125 gm all-purpose flour and ½ tsp baking soda. Start adding the prepared solution to the dry ingredients and continue to whisk. Make sure there should be no lumps or dry flour left.
Add 5-6 drops of Colombian coffee flavor and mix it into the batter. The batter is going to be runny so do not worry about that. Do not feel tempted to add extra flour.
Now pour the prepared batter into a 6 inches greased and lined tin. I prefer using parchment paper to line the tins as it makes unmoulding really easy. Tap the tin on the counter and now bake it in a preheated oven at 180 °C for 40 minutes.
After 40 minutes, take the tin out from the oven. Do not immediately unmould the cake. Let it rest for 5-10 minutes and then unmould else the cake can break.
And you are done with your best ever chocolate mud cake.
Slice the cake after 10 minutes of resting else it will stick to the knife while cutting. This cake tastes best when served warm.
