So when I came across this recipe I was eager to try it. First, I decided to find out what the difference is between a regular cake and a mud cake. My research gave me the answer, in regular cakes you add chocolate powder whereas in mud cake you add melted chocolate.

Adding Melted Chocolate adds that richness to the cake and perfect with a cup of tea! I can just enjoy this cake all day 🙂

So, I started to prepare the cake and I used Ossoro’s Chocolate Bourbon Essence to enhance the flavour and trust me it did more than just enchanting it . It made the cake amazingly richer.
