Holy chocolate cake how have we never made this before? A Mississippi mud pie is probably the ultimate chocolate recipe. Everyone in the SORTEDfood crew agreed that everyone should try this at least once in their life.
Blitz biscuits and mix with the melted butter. Press into a spring form or loose-bottomed 23cm cake tin. Chill.
Preheat an oven to 180°C.
Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Whisk the eggs and sugar in a second bowl until they have tripled in volume. Mix the coffee, vanilla and cream together.
Fold the coffee cream into the eggs along with the chocolate mixture and cocoa powder. Transfer onto the biscuit base. Bake for 35mins at 180°C then cool completely.
Warm all the ingredients for the pudding slowly in a saucepan as you whisk. Transfer to a bowl to cool once it's thickened and bubbled for a minute.
Pour onto the cooling mud pie. Whip up the cream, fold in the caramel and spoon on top. Finish with grated chocolate and a drizzle of chocolate sauce! Serves 12
