Mud Cake

20180510_061610_resized(1)How do you celebrate moms day..a  card, flowers, make her something special or get her an Ankarsrum mixer.As a mom of 3 wonderful boys I can guarantee all she really wants is knowing you are happy.  But making her this cake wont disappoint either, especially since the last Mud Cake you likely made her was “fresh mud” after a rain. Patricia from our office in Sweden shared this with e earlier this week. It is is the texture of a brownie but the taste of fudge….delish!! I topped mine with a thin layer of raspberry jam and meringue cookies but wouldn’t be necessary to taste awesome.

Use Ankarsrum mixer with Plastic bowl and single whips.

At this point Patricia cooled the cake and served with ice cream which would be great too!
