Like the title suggests, this mud cake has chunks of dark chocolate baked in the middle. It's easy to make, with impressive results. You could ice the cake with rich chocolate icing or spread with ganache if you prefer. It keeps well for up to 1 week stored in an airtight container lined with baking paper. Source: Super Food Ideas magazine in Australia. The first time we made this we only had a 250g block of choc (& couldn't help but eat some as it was being chopped!) so we made do, and used less butter, but when it was done, Matt commented that it "wasn't muddy enough". This time we made it as posted (see pics) & Matt couldn't speak, for a mouth-full of sweet muddy goodness! :D
