Mississippi Mud Pie Cake - Recipe


Supremely luxurious chocolatey, squidgy cake. Yum!
This chocolate lovers dessert will make enough for at least 8 people. Each slice is richly satisfying and is a cross between gateaux and a pud. It keeps well in the fridge for for a good week (if you can resist it for that long) so should provide you with second helpings!

Ingredients:

For the cake
- 200g pitted dates, chopped
- 250ml boiling water
- 1 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
- 250g low-fat yoghurt
- 60g cocoa powder
- 150g high cocoa content dark chocolate, gently melted
- 75g ground almonds
- 175g rice flour
- 1 tsp of Vanilla Paste
- 2 large or 3 small eggs - separate the egg yolks from whites- retain both in separate bowls.
- 115g-120g of Xylitol

For the topping/ 'icing'
- 125g reduced fat cream cheese/or 50% less fat creme fraiche
- 40g Clear Honey or Xylitol
- 1 Tbsp Cocoa, plus a little extra to dust the top.
- 1 tsp Vanilla Paste

How to Make the Mud Pie Cake

1) Pre-heat oven to 170°C/Fan 150°C/Gas Mark 3.

2) Put the dates, water and bicarbonate of soda in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave on high for 3 minutes or until the dates are soft. When cooled/luke warm, puree the dates to a smooth paste, either with the back of a fork in or a food processor. N.B. Some inner fibres from the dates may not grind down, so remove these by hand.

3) Put the date puree, yoghurt, melted chocolate, cocoa powder, ground almonds, rice flour, salt, vanilla paste and egg yolks into a large bowl and mix to a smooth batter.

4) In separate bowl, beat the egg whites, gradually adding the sugar until the mix is stiff and glossy. Fold into the batter mix until just combined.

5) Pour the mixture into an oiled, circular cake tin - approximately 23cm/9 inch diameter. Bake in the middle of the oven for 50-60mins or until there is a slight spring in the middle of the cake. Leave to cool for 10 minutes before turning out.

For the topping or 'icing'

1) Sift the cocoa powder into the same bowl as the cream cheese/creme fraiche.

2) Add the honey or Xylitol, and Vanilla Paste and mix thoroughly.

3) Using a palette knife/butter knife or the back of a dessert spoon, spread the topping evenly over the top and around the side of the cake. Create whatever pattern you wish e.g.: concentric circles, soft peaks, etc.

4) Gently sift a little cocoa over the top of the cake then serve. Optional: You may also like to garnish the middle of the cake with loosely piled chocolate shards or quills.
