This simple white chocolate mud cake is the least healthy cake known to man: it’s basically an instant coronary.
You have been warned.
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.
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.
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!

Do you make the odd death by chocolate cake?
Or are all your cakes of nothing but dates, nuts and organic cocoa??
Don’t tell me!
