Chocolate Mud cake
Mud cake, also referred to as Mississippi mud cake or mud pie, is a type of chocolate cake made in virtually endless variations. There is no standard recipe for this cake. It is believed to have originated in the 1970s and 1980s in the American South, and some say it is baked to resemble the mud along the banks of the Mississippi River. This dense sticky chocolate cake is similar to a brownie and has a soft and gooey center. In our recipe we use Nutella which brings an exquisite taste of hazelnuts to the preparation, topped with fresh raspberries and freshly whipped cream, perfect for Valentine's Day!
