This is the ultimate mudcake not for the faint-hearted! I received this recipe from a chef I used to work with at the Left Bank restaurant in Melbourne on the weekends in my high school dayz.. Family & friends say it's the best and richest they have ever tasted , probably for CHOCOHOLICS only! *Use any simple chocolate icing recipe, it's the cake that is the main event!
