About this recipe: A deliciously different cake.
An easy recipe but I think I took it out a bit early as its very stodgy (my trademark state of cake!) I attempted to spin sugar to go on top but failed, so smashed the solid caramel in the bottom of the pan with a mallet and chucked it on top instead. Will let you know how it goes down. - 08 Jun 2013
Followed recipe to the letter and cooked in the time stated. Very heavy texture, but the caramel icing tastes great but will use it on a lighter sponge next time. - 31 Oct 2016
While I have made a cake or twenty in my time, it was also my first time making a mud cake of any kind. All I can say it was very easy, and the result is fantastic. Only one hint is if you plan to use a spring tin, make sure when lined it is water tight as this mix is very very wet. - 05 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
