Mississipi mud pie

DSC_2207

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
