it’s your birthday….we have to have cake!

Hope everyone had a great day today, we celebrated my partner’s birthday with a quiet dinner and even though he didn’t want one, of course a cake.
The choice was left upto me on the cake, so I thought I’d try a caramel mud cake.
so here it is.

caramel mud cake (women’s weekly)

ingredients

  • 180g white chocolate
  • 185g unsalted butter, chopped
  • 1 cup (220g) firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) golden syrup
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • 1 1/2 cups (225g) plain flour
  • 1/2 cup (75g) self raising flour
  • 2 eggs

white chocolate ganache

ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (125ml) cream
  • 360g white chocolate

method

  • preheat oven to 160 c/140 c fan forced. grease a 22cm round tin and line with baking paper
  • stir chocolate, butter, sugar, golden syrup and milk in a large saucepan over a low heat until smooth. allow to cool for about 15 minutes

  • whisk in sifted flours and eggs. pour into pan

  • bake for about 45 min, or until a skewer comes out clean. cool in pan

to make ganache just put cream and chocolate in a small saucepan and stir over low heat, do not leave it unattended, only takes a few minutes.
refrigerate, stirring occasionally until spreadable

I made a double batch and split it between 2 pans and then sandwiched it with ganache.
enjoy and hope you all have a great September ♥
