White Chocolate Mud Cake Recipe

by Shell


  • 300g white chocolate (I used Cadbury Dream white chocolate)
  • 200g butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten


  1. Preheat oven to a low temp (approx 150 degrees Celcius).
  2. The recipe said to use a 20cm square cake pan, but I actually used a 25cm springform tin. Line your tin with baking paper.
  3. Into a large saucepan place cut up butter, chocolare broken into pieces and milk and sugar.
  4. On a low heat, melt these ingredients together stirring constantly.
  5. Once it looks melted, remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool to room temperature (this takes about 15 – 20 minutes).
  6. Once at room temperature, slowly add combined eggs and vanilla, stirring as you go.
  7. In a large bowl mix flours together.
  8. Pour about a third of the white chocolate liquid into the flour and mix well.
  9. Keep repeating this step until all the white choc has been mixed in.
  10. The mixture will be quite runny, pour into your tin and place in oven.
  11. Bake for 60 – 75 minutes (depending on tin). To test the cake, use a skewer in the middle – if it comes out clean then it is done. If not bake for another 5 minutes.
  12. Let the cake sit in the tine to cool for about 15 – 20 minutes. Cover it with a clean tea towel.
  13. This is one of those cakes that is even better at about day 2!
