Mud cake with salted caramel and dark chocolate chips

Mud cake with salted caramel

Kladdkakans dag (mud cake day) is tomorrow and I have baked a few mud cakes this week, see After eight mud cake or my previous liquorice and raspberry mud cake. This one is MAYBE my last one for this week, and it’s of course my favourite combination of salted caramel and chocolate. Mud cake with salted caramel and chocolate chips! How good does that sound?

Super easy by using dulce de leche, and the chocolate chips gives it an extra dimension of dark chocolate. Try with white or milk chocolate if you like that. I personally like dark chocolate with something salt like salted caramel. Some extra sea salt on top is beautiful and gives it a salty crunch.

Recipe for mud cake with salted caramel and dark chocolate chips (Kladdkaka med salt kola och chokladbitar)

  • 100 g salted butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 2.5 dl sugar
  • 1 dl flour
  • 4 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 0.5 dl dulce de leche
  • 1 tbsp whipping cream
  • 0.25 tsp sea salt
  • 0.5 dl dark chocolate chips
  • 0.25 dl dark chocolate chips
  • Sea salt

Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C and grease a baking tin (I use a round 23 cm).

Mix the eggs and sugar lightly. Sift the dry ingredients into the batter, add the melted butter, and gently mix it together into a smooth batter. Overmixing the batter will cause a fluffy and dry cake, so be careful.

Pour into the tin and spread out evenly. Mix the dulce de leche with salt and some whipping cream so it easily can be drizzeled on the batter. I used a spoon to drizzle it, but you can also pipe it out if you like that. Swirl around with a spoon/knife to create a pattern. Top with the chocolate chips and bake for around 18-21 minutes, depending on how muddy cake you want. I like 20 minutes, but I like crispy edges.

Let it cool for 20 minutes and top with rest of the chocolate chips and some sea salt. For best results, let it chill in the fridge for a while or for the night. Enjoy!
