Hi Ann, I have been asked to bake a birthday cake for my boss and colleagues for the office celebration so I would like to consider this recipe. There are about 25-30 people in the office. So do I double, triple or……this recipe? Also, I would to bake in a square tin so what should be the size? Or do you have other of your birthday cake recipes that you recommend? Thanks!
Hi Ai Li, This cake is quite dense if you over baked it. So better don't consider about it.
Thanks and appreciate your advice.

@My Little Space
Kristy, You made Mud cake! I bet it is very delicious as your friends love it so much. Did you post up?
Thank you Katrina for visiting. I hopping over to your blog now ;DD
Ann, I love MUD cake alot! Even my friends are addicted to it already after I sent them one during the last CNY. haha… I love your texture too very thick and moist.
Thanks for sharing.
This is really a beautiful creation! Happy blogiversary!!
I came over here from Baking is Hot. I hope you stop by my blog – I'm a newbie blogger, just a couple of months old! ♥- Katrina
Hi Yammy, of you can use the chocolate you like. Hope you like this cake 🙂
can i use chocolate flavoured whipped cream to subsitute chocolate soft cream?
Liz, my cake is a bit crumbly not too dry but you can store the cake in the fridge for next day, it tastes better after you thaw the cake for a while.
Someone like Janz (her comment is on top) told me her cake is soft and I think maybe the oven varies.
thks for sharing this recipe. I baked it today. It was abit disappointing cos the texture is dry and crumbly. Is this how it should be? Liz
Hi Jing, 1/2 tbsp is correct.
is it 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda rather than 1/2 tablespoon? (the recipe calls for 1/2 TBSP)
thank you! really appreciate your generous sharing.
Hey I'm no way as compare to your baking skills.I really admire your bakes and wish I'm as good as u are Ann….."salute 2U".I just love to try out new recipes.Nope, the sinkage puts me off and I did not bother anymore to coat it with the choc cream.Anyway,I'll give another try n see the outcome.
Janz, clever you that your cake is soft and moist plus no cracks at all!
I also don't understand why?? Did you coat the cake with chocolate cream? Even without the cream, the cake can goes with vanilla ice cream also very good!
Thanks Mrs. P :))
No wor,the center was fully baked.I even baked it at an additional 5 mins after testing it with a skewer for doneness, just that it has a slight dent/sinkage in the center. The cake is still very soft and slightly moist in texture even today….sigh…dunno wot went wrong…hehehe!!!
congratulations!!! 371 posts in two years!! wow that's amazing! I'm only on my way to my 100th. But I love your blog so please keep up with it!! Thanks!!
Janz Pg, Sorry to say that your cake is not cooked 🙁 I'm sure after you cut the cake, the center is still a bit wet. You might need to bake another extra few minutes when you bake this cake again.
Thanks for your prompt reply regarding the soft choc cream. I tried baking your recipe this afternoon using a 7" square pan. The cake rose nicely and evenly without any cracks during baking but after leaving it to cool on the wire rack,the center sank. Do you have any idea why this happened. The texture of the cake was soft though. Pls advice.
Thank you everyone for leaving your lovely comments :))
