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.

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