Lemon & Lime White Chocolate Mud Cake

I chose this one out of the Women's Weekly Bake cookbook.  I'm not much of a cake baker but thought this one sounded nice.  I've also never made a white chocolate mud cake so a good one to try out.

Really easy to make.  Didn't take long, especially with my little helper.


250g butter, chopped
2 tsp grated lemon rind
2 tsp grated lime rind
180g white chocolate
1 1/2 cups castor sugar
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup self raising flour
2 eggs

Coconut Ganache
140ml coconut cream
360gm white chocolate
1tsp grated lemon rind
1tsp grated lime rind

Preheat oven to 150 degrees (fan forced).  Grease deep 20cm round cake pan and line base with baking paper.
Stir butter, rinds, chocolate, sugar and milk in medium saucepan over low heat until smooth.  Transfer to a large bowl and cool for 15 minutes.
Stir sifted flours and eggs into mixture; pour into pan.

Bake cake for 1 hour and 40 minutes.  Cool cake in pan.
Meanwhile make ganache.
Turn cake, top-side up, onto serving plate; spread ganache over cake and serve.

Coconut Ganache
Bring coconut cream to the boil then remove from heat.  Add chocolate and rind to the pan and stir until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth.
Cover and refrigerate until ready to ice cake.

Tasted delicious.  Would make again
