Pomegranate Choc Mudcake V

A very yummy chocolate cake with a twist of pomegranate juice. I’ve never been a great fan of pomegranates as I just haven’t found a use for them. But I was tempted by this cake seen in a magazine from our local supermarket Coles. The cake is a bit heavy and will be best suitable for a day where you have company stopping by.

Serves 10




Preheat the oven to 170C (forced fan 150C). Stretch a piece of baking paper between the bottom and ring of a 20cm springform tin and grease the sides.

Have a bowl with a sieve over it. Cut the pomegranate in two and squeeze the juice out so that the juice comes into the bowl and the seeds and the bits of white pieces are caught in the sieve. Remove the white stuff from the seeds when you’re done.

Melt chocolate, butter and 50 ml pomegranate juice over a water bath. Stir the mixture regularly. When the mixture is smooth remove it come the heat. Add cacao powder and stir until it is dissolved. Add sugar and eggs and stir. Fold in the sifted flour. Stop folding as soon as the flour has been incorporated.

Pour the batter into the springform tin and bake the cake for 55-60 minutes, or until a wooden skewer comes out with crumbs, not batter. Cool the cake completely in the tin.

Topping: Heat up the cream to boiling point. Pour the cream over the chocolate. Put it aside for a few minutes. Stir the mixture until it becomes smooth. Add butter and stir until the butter is dissolved and nicely blended into the topping.

When the cake is cold, turn it upside down and place it on a dish. Spread out the topping on the top and sides of the cake, sprinkle the pomegranate seeds over the cake and you are ready to serve.
