This Kentucky Mudslide Cake is a homemade version of the popular layered dessert featuring chocolate, instant coffee and whipped cream. The cake's aesthetic is meant to look slightly unkempt and overflowing with gooey chocolate earning it its mudslide name.
The cake is made from three different tiers of homemade chocolate cake containing cocoa powder, eggs, sugar flower, oil, baking soda, vanilla and instant coffee. The inclusion of coffee will give the chocolate sponge an aromatic and robust flavor that gives the chocolate flavor a bit more sophistication. The three layers are stacked together using a thick layer of boozy whipped cream made from bourbon, heavy cream, sugar and gelatin. The gelatin will keep the whipped cream in tact so it doesn't fall apart. Then the cake is topped with chocolate cookie crumbs and chocolate sauce.
