  • Preparation:
  • Cooking:



  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line the base of a 22 - 23 cm spring-form tin with non-stick baking paper and spray with non-stick baking spray.
  2. Step 2

    Mix the lemon juice with the Meadow Fresh Original Milk and set aside for it to sour the milk.
  3. Step 3

    Place oil, chocolate and hot coffee in a microwave bowl or small saucepan and heat gently, stirring often, until chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Cool.
  4. Step 4

    In a large bowl, mix the Edmonds Standard Grade Flour, Edmonds Baking Soda, Edmonds Baking Powder, Chelsea LoGiCane™ Low GI Sugar or Chelsea Raw Sugar and cocoa.
  5. Step 5

    Mix the eggs and soured milk into the cooled chocolate mixture, combine thoroughly, and then whisk into the dry ingredients.
  6. Step 6

    Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 1 hour. When tested, fudgy crumbs will still adhere to a skewer. This is the desirable sticky mud cake consistency. Cool for 15 minutes in the tin, then turn out and cool further on a wire rack. When cold, cut the cake in half using a serrated knife, ice the centre and top with thick chocolate ganache icing.
