Chocolate & Vanilla Mud Cake

Warning! Sweetness overload! Serve in brownie size portions – so naughty but so very nice.
Serve smothered in ice cream, hot or cold!


Chocolate sauce:
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup hot water
2 tsp vanilla essence 
1 tsp cinnamon

Vanilla cake:
2 cups cake flour
1 & 1/2 cups sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk powder
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup oil
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence

160g milk chocolate
80g dark chocolate
100g walnuts


Pack 15 briquettes onto the coal grid inside your PotjieKing. Put a couple of firelighters into the bottom section and get that going.

  • In a bowl, add the dry ingredients together for the vanilla cake
  • Make a well in the middle and mix in the wet ingredients.
  • Mix until smooth
  • In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients for the chocolate sauce and then mix in the wet ingredients.
  • Line a no 12 flat bottom potie pot with heavy duty tin foil
  • Grease the foil with spray and cook or butter
  • Pour in the vanilla cake mix
  • Slowly pour the chocolate sauce over the vanilla batter.
  • Cover with the potjie lid and space 10 briquettes evenly over the lid
  • Spread the remaining 5 briquettes evenly inside the PotjieKing
  • Place the potjie pot onto the PotieKing
  • Turn the potjie pot every 15 minutes.
  • Cook for 40 – 50 minutes
  • In another bowl crush up the chocolate and nuts into small bits
  • Remove the potjie pot off of the PotjieKing and gently blow the ash off of the lid – leaving the coals there
  • Carefully remove the lid – out of the wind so the ash doesn’t blow onto the cake
  • Cover the top of the cake and chocolate sauce with the bits of chocolate and nuts
  • Replace the lid and leave for another 10 minutes so that the chocolate melts

Serve a scoop of hot cake with ice cream or allow to cool and slice into squares.
