This cake is the teenagers’ new birthday cake of choice, so twice a year I make it, with love.

Teen16 became Teen17 yesterday and this is the cake we celebrated with. He was delighted.  He needs to run a half marathon now to burn the calories off.

By teenagers request, there are no photos of the candles or himself blowing. These modern kids do know their digital rights.

simple white chocolate mud cake ingredients

The eggs look like the only super healthy ingredient!

The recipe is from a book called Cafe Cakes, by the Women’s Weekly. My two sisters and I have have that small recipe book and we swear by it.


Melting the milk, butter, chocolate and butter – very gently. The butter was very soft so I didn’t bother to chop it up.


Mixing it up… I’m using a longer exposure here to get the movement of my spoon, had the camera on a tripod.


Whisking all the ingredients in together.


Here’s one of the tins, the top has gone a bit hard and cracked on this one. Too hot maybe?  Didn’t matter.

At this point, I decided we’d better drizzle all over.


So there you have it. One son one year older… always a little voice at the back of my mind saying: ‘I want my baby back!!’  Last year, I was allowed to put some photos of him up and write 16 things about it.

But not this year. Fair enough, son. But the cake goes out into the world!

Please don’t make it if you already have clogged arteries. Luckily, I’d had a big swim with the Bold and the Beautiful yesterday morning… I needed some simple carbohydrates… and I got them!
