Caramel Mud Cake Recipe

I LOVE caramel mud cake. In fact it’s my whole family’s favorite flavor.

This is the one (popular) cake that I have been searching for the perfect recipe… but I think I have now found one!! Try this… it is SO simple all made in one saucepan and is deliciously moist and sweet.


  • 185 grams butter, chopped
  • 150 grams white/milk chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed firmly
  • 1/3 cup golden syrup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup self raising flour
  • 2 eggs


1. Preheat oven to 120C
2. Combine butter, chocolate, sugar, golden syrup and milk in medium saucepan; stir over low heat, without boiling, until smooth
5. Cool for 15 min in the saucepan
4. Whisk in sifted flours, then the eggs, one at a time. Pour mixture into a prepared tin
5. Stand cake in pan for 30 minutes; turn onto wire rack to cool

The recipe calls for a 23cm round cake tin and to bake it for 1.5 hours. However, as I like to have a really tall cake, I baked mine in a 20cm round cake tin for 2 and 1/4 hours and it was perfect! Yum.

(Thanks to for this one – The Best Caramel Mud Cake EVER!)


Here is my original recipe which I was not 100% satisfied with only because it wasn’t caramelly enough, but it is still a delicious cake!!


  • 350 grams white chocolate pieces
  • 225 grams butter
  • 600 mL water
  • 3 Eggs
  • 400 grams brown sugar
  • 400 grams self raising flour


Preheat oven to 170C/325F. *Please note: This mixture is quite runny, use a solid cake tin not a spring form tin. *Tip: Line tin with baking paper, this will make the cake easier to remove from the tin, no sticking to the sides.

  1. In a saucepan over low heat, heat chocolate, butter and water. Stir frequently until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
  2. In a large bowl, lightly beat eggs. Gradually beat cooled chocolate mixture into eggs.
  3. Whisk sugar and flour into chocolate mixture, continue beating until smooth and well blended.
  4. Pour mixture into cake tin. Bake until almost cooked through to the centre, checking with a skewer inserted into centre of cake.
