VOTE FOR CANADA'S NEXT GREAT BEER FLAVOUR

‘Mud Cake’ by Baking Bar

With the abundance of chocolate left after Easter we decided to write a chocolate cake recipe which you can use with any extra chocolate you have. We decided to call this cake 'Mud Cake' as it is extremely fudgy like a brownie. We include beer in this Mud Cake for extra flavour. We used the Innis and Gunn Irish Whiskey Finish. The chocolate ganache on top is thick and luxurious. An extremely decadent cake but simple to make.

The Ingredients:

The Cake:
220g NEILL'S® Plain Flour
80g Cocoa Powder
200g Caster Sugar
1tsp Baking Powder
175g Sour Cream
115ml Vegetable Oil
1tbsp Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs
100ml Warm Water
80ml Innis and Gunn Irish Whiskey Finish Beer

The Ganache:
175g Double Cream
115g Dark Chocolate
115g Milk Chocolate

(You can use all dark or all milk if you choose)

Recommended Equipment:
Sage Appliances Scraper Mixer Pro
Spatula

The How-To:

Pre-heat oven to 175c.
Grease and line a standard 9-10 inch cake tin.
Sieve all the dry ingredients into the mixer or a large bowl.
Start folding the sour cream, oil, water, beer, eggs and vanilla extract.
Slowly fold the mixture together until its consistently mixed together and you can no longer see any loose ingredients.
You can use a mixer for this part of the process if it includes a speed for folding. We use the Sage Appliances Scraper Mixer Pro which includes this brilliant feature.
Transfer the cake batter into the prepared cake tin.
Bake in the centre of the oven for 30 mins or until a skewer inserted comes out without any uncooked batter. It may still show some chocolate as the cake is very moist and fudgy. Do not overcook.
To make the ganache heat the cream in a saucepan or microwavable bowl until it begins to simmer.
Chop the chocolate into small pieces. The smaller the better.
Place the chocolate in the bottom of the mixer bowl and pour over the warm cream.
Allow to sit for 2-3 mins. This gives the chocolate time to melt.
