Caramel Choc-Chip Mud Cakes

I recently had a girl's night sleepover with my highschool friends as a way to celebrate the end of holidays and beginning of uni.  I knew immediately that chocolate needed to be on the dessert menu.  So when I came across this recipe within my Women's Weekly "Cake" cookbook I knew they would perfectly fulfil our mandatory chocolate consumption.  They contain not only milk chocolate, but also white chocolate which is melted with golden syrup and brown sugar to create a subtle caramel flavour.  And as all good mudcakes are, these turned out moist, dense and ever so tempting.

Ingredients

90g white eating chocolate, chopped corsely
90g unsatled butter, chopped coarsely
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tbsp golden syrup
1/2 cup milk
3/4 plain flour
1/4 cup self-raising flour
1 egg
2-3 tbsp milk chocolate chips, frozen

Method
Preheat oven to 140 degrees (fan-forced) and grease a friand pan; line bases with baking paper.  Stir white chocolate, butter, brown sugar and syrup and milk in a saucepan over low heat until smooth.  Cool for 15 minutes.  Whisk sifted flours and egg; stir in chocolate bits.  Divide mixture among pan holes.  Bake for 25 minutes.  Stand cake in pan for 5 minutes; turn top-side up onto wire rack too cool.  Serve.

  10. Oh this makes me want one to go with my café but I would probably get the sugar-sleepies soon after. Each of the ingredients is worthy of its own recipe but to see them all together in one would be delish!
