Ages ago, when I was working as waitress in one of the pubs we were selling Mississipi Mud Pie. It was the first time I ever saw it and I was amazed. Layers of chocolate and cream and more chocolate as a biscuit base- you just can’t beat it. I remind myself about this cake just a few weeks ago when I was talking with my friends. It turn out that I am so good at describing it that I had to promise to bake it. If it comes to cakes you don’t need to ask me twice. I bought some missing ingrediends and set myself to work. I used one of the Hairy Bikers recipe to start with (in a future I’m planning to fallow Martha Stewart recipe).
- 75 g unsalted butter
- 150 g chocolate digestive biscuits
- 150 g Oreo
- 135 g dark chocolate
- 135 g unsalted butter
- 3 eggs
- 150 g light soft brown sugar
- 25 g cocoa powder
- 150 ml double cream
- 250 ml double cream

Place the biscuits and Oreos in a blender.
Add a cool melted butter.
Transfer the base to a prepared tin and put it in a fridge for a 30 min.
Melt chocolate and butter in a water bath.
Leave the cjocolate on the side ro cool down.
Mix together eggs and sugar until fluffy.
Gradually add melted chocolate,
and cocoa powder.
Pour cake mix on top of the base and place in a oven.

The cake is gonna sink a bit but don’t worry about it 😊
Wait for the cake to cool down and whip the cream with brown sugar.
Spread the cream on top of the cake and decorate with chocolate sprinkles.
