Chocolate Mousse Mud Cake

Chocolate Mousse Mud Cake

A gorgeous, dense mud cake base topped with smooth, creamy, easy chocolate mousse. This showstopping chocolate mud cake is covered with a chocolate mirror glaze and is decadence at it’s best.


  1. Grease and line a 9 inch / 22cm round springform tin with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F / 160C fan forced.
  2. Combine the butter and chocolate in a saucepan over low heat and stir until everything is melted and you have a smooth liquid. Allow to cool for a few minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt and place aside.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs and milk until well combined. Whisk in the melted chocolate and butter.
  5. Add the dry ingredients and whisk through until just combined.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for around 25-28 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out with just a crumb or two attached.
  7. Using a clean tea towel, very gently press down all over the top of the cake to flatten out any dome and press out a little to the edges to make sure the sides of the cake are right up against the tin. This step is optional but it will give your cake nice straight layers. Leave it in the tin to cool.
