White Chocolate Mud Cake

Monday, June 9, 2008



9th June 2008, its been a year since we had ROM-ed. Its been exactly a year ago since I had signed the paper. Wow! Time really flies fast. Therefore, I had baked this cake yesterday to commemorate our first ROM anniversary. So, today we had a mini celebration for our first anniversary with this white chocolate cake and red wine.


Ingredients

250g unsalted butter, chopped
150g white chocolate, chopped
2 cups caster sugar
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups plain flour, sifted
1/2 cup self-raising flour, sifted
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten lightly
pieces of chocolate - decoration


Ganache
300g white chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup thickened cream


Methods
  1. Preheat oven at 160 degrees. Meanwhile, grease a deep 22 cm round cake pan; line base with baking paper.
  2. Combine butter, chocolate, sugar and milk in a pan; stir over low fire until chocolate melted and sugar is dissolved. Transfer mixture to a large bowl; cool for 15 minutes.
  3. Stir in flours, vanilla extract and eggs. Pour mixture into prepared pan.
  4. Bake, covering with foil halfway through cooking for 1 1/2 hours. Stand cake in pan for 3o minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.
  5. To prepare ganache, combine white chocolate and cream in a pan. Stir over low fire until chocolate is melted and mixture smooth. Pour into a bowl then refrigerate until thick and of spreadable consistency.
  6. Spread ganache over top and sides of mud cake. Decorate with pieces of chocolate.
