White Chocolate Mud Cake with Frosting

Subtle flavour but very nice and moist. Made my wedding cake from this recipe. Freezes well with or without icing.


  • 300g white chocolate

  • 200g butter

  • 250ml milk

  • 165g caster sugar

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 large egss, lightly beaten

  • 100g SR flour

  • 150g plain flour


  • 175gm white chocolate

  • 250gm soft butter

  • 275gm icing sugar, sifted

  • 1 tbs vanilla essence


  • 1.

    Prehead oven to 160C (145C fan forced). Grease a 20cm square cake pan and line with paper.

  • 2.

    Place chocolate, butter, milk and sugar in a large saucepan over a low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat when chocolate and butter have melted, and stir mixture well until completely smooth. Allow mix to cool at room temp for 15 minutes.

  • 3.

    Add vanilla and eggs to chocolate mixture and stir until well combined.

  • 4.

    Sift flours together into a large bowl. Add1 cup of the chocolate mixture slowly and stir until a paste forms. Repeat until chocolate mixture has all been mixed in. The gradual method of combining wet and dry ingredients helps prevent lumps

  • 5.

    Pour mixture into prepared pan.

  • 6.

    Bake for about 70 minutes. When the cake is ready a skewere inserted into the cake should come out clean.

  • 7.

    Cool on wire rack.

  • 8.

    To make the icing - beat the butter with an electric mixer until it becomes lighter and flufflier. Add the vanilla and then gradually add icing sugar. Beat until light and fluffy.

  • 9.

    Melt the chocolate in the microwave or over a double boiler for 2-3 minutes, set aside to cool for 5 minutes.

  • 10.

    Pour chocolate into icing mixture and beat until well combined.

  • 11.

    Pipe or spread icing on the cake.


Muffins can also be made from this mixture. It will make 24 regular muffins and 48 mini muffins. I bake the regular muffins for 30=35 minutes, and the mini muffins for 10-15 minutes.

Making this cake has ensured at least another 15 years of happy marriage. This is delicous, moist and light. I had no idea it could be this easy.
