Need to satisfy a chocolate craving, whilst staying gluten-free? This chocolate mud cake is perfectly indulgent for any special celebration whilst being simple enough for a go-to afternoon tea cake.

  • 300g chocolate
  • 250g butter
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 120g Seed or Nut Flour
  • 175g sugar
  • 5g muscat (or port)
  • 6 egg whites
  • 75g castor sugar
  • Prepare cake tins, turn oven on to 150ºc.
  • Melt Chocolate and butter in a double boiler then let cool to a warm temperature.
  • Combine egg yolks, 175g sugar and seed or nut flour, then add to cooled chocolate butter, mix. At this point add the muscat.
  • Ensure the last step has been completed prior whisking eggs (this allows for the nut or seed flour to thorougly mix and absorb moisture of other ingredients)
  • Whisk egg whites to soft peak and add 75g sugar 
  • Fold whites into the chocolate mix gently.
  • Scale batter into tins and bake for around 120 minutes at 150ºC. Check cake with a knife - when clean it is ready. (The cake may need to cook longer if you use a different size tin, just make sure the testing knife comes out clean and it will be ready).
  • Cool cake in the pans for ten minutes then unmould onto sheet dusted with icing sugar.
  • For an 8" round tin approx. 120min baking time.
