Method

CHOCOLATE MUD CAKE METHOD

STEP 1

In a bowl melt the dark chocolate melts in the hot water, stir well. Once the chocolate is melted, add the cold water.

STEP 2

Combine all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and using a beater, mix on low speed for 3 minutes.

STEP 3

Scale into paper lined 7 inch tins (650g drop weight) and bake at 160°C for 55 minutes.

STEP 4

After removing the cake from the oven, lightly brush the top of the warm mud cake with the sugar syrup.

SUGAR SYRUP METHOD

STEP 1

Bring sugar and water to the boil.

CHOCOLATE MOUSSE METHOD

STEP 1

Boil the water, glucose and sugar together and cook syrup to 120°C (soft ball stage).

STEP 2

Place the eggs in a mixing bowl fitted with a whisk attachment and whisk mixture on second speed.

STEP 3

Once the sugar syrup has reached 120°C slowly stream the hot mixture over the whisking eggs until all is into the bowl.

Turn machine speed up to third or top speed and continue to whisk until mixture cools down and doubles in volume.

STEP 5

Soak the gelatine in cold water until softened. Warm this gelatine up over the stove with a splash of water until gelatine melts and mixture is clear. Stream this into the egg mixture on low speed and mix to combine.

STEP 6

In a separate bowl melt the chocolate and place aside.

In another bowl whisk the cream to soft peaks.
