White Chocolate Mud Cake Recipe

white chocolate mud cake recipe

This white chocolate mud cake recipe is one of my favourite ever, second only to the very popular Best Ever Chocolate Mud Cake.  The addition of coconut to the mixture makes for an excellent texture.

This  recipe makes a really good sized cake and so it is perfect for entertaining. The very naughty white chocolate ganache is a treat in itself.

This recipe makes two smaller cakes, or one very large, very rich cake (the photo above shows the smaller version of the cake). I tend to go with two cakes these days as it seems to produce the perfect sized cake for eating.

If you really wanted to go all out, you could join the two smaller, flatter cakes together. Please send me a piece if you try this. 😉

This white chocolate mud cake recipe makes a very moist, decadent and sweet cake. So yummy.

White Chocolate Mud Cake Recipe


150g of white chocolate, chopped

250g of butter, chopped

2 cups of caster sugar

1 cup of milk

1/2 cup of self-raising flour

1/4 cup of desiccated coconut

11/4 cups of plain flour

1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

2 eggs


Preheat your oven to 160 degrees celsius.

Grease and line two 20cm round cake tins. (I used a heart-shaped tin this time which worked perfectly well).

Combine the chopped butter and chocolate in a good-sized saucepan. Add the milk and caster sugar and cook, stirring over low heat until melted together and smooth.

Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and allow to cool.

Whisk in the flours, coconut, vanilla and eggs.

Pour the mixture into your tins.

Cook in the oven for around 1 1/2 hours (or 2 hours if you use one large tin) covering the top with foil after around one hour to ensure that the top does not burn.

Allow the cake to cool before turning out then cover with White Chocolate Ganache.
