Gluten Free Chocolate Mud Cake with Caramel Ganache

Wednesday 8 May 2024



I wanted to make this gluten free Chocolate Mud Cake with Caramel Ganache for ages. Then last week I made it because I am about to start on Ozempic and I wanted a good last treat before I began as I am only allowed 100 gm of carbs per day!

I changed the butter to margarine to reduce the lactose in the cake. It is ridiculously delicious. Its one of the best cakes I have ever made and eaten. The ganache is ridiculously delicious too. 
I also added small chocolate eggs on top as I made it for Easter Sunday. The original recipe calls for caramel popcorn but you can add any toppings you like.  

Once it goes in the fridge it gets very hard so I recommend heating it up in the microwave for 25 seconds per slice. Then it warms and softens as it came fresh out of the oven.

This cake gets very solid once you put it in the fridge so zapping it in the microwave for about 25 seconds per piece makes it soft and delicious as if it came fresh out of the oven. 
You're welcome!

200g dark chocolate, chopped

4. To make caramel ganache, place the chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (don’t let bowl touch the water). 

Stir with a metal spoon until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Place in the fridge, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour or until ganache thickens and is a spreadable consistency.

5. Place cake on a plate. Spread with ganache and enjoy.
