Quick And Easy Mud Cake


  • 250 ml caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar or essence
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 150 ml plain flour
  • 100 g butter melted
  • 2 eggs


  • Combine all the dry ingredients.
  • Add the melted butter and eggs. Do not whisk but use a spoon or wooden spatula to gently mix until all the ingredients are combined.
  • NOTE: Don't taste the mixture! You may want to eat it before it makes its way to the oven. Hahaha!
  • Pour the mixture into a lined cake pan. I use both rectangular bread form and round cake pan Ø 20 cm depending on the mood.
  • Bake at 175 °C for 15-25 minutes, depending on your oven. The cake should be set on the edges and slightly loose in the middle.
  • Let preferably cool completely before serving.
