As I mentioned before one week before my birthday I pre-celebrated it with my friends from college. I invited them over thinking we could all enjoy the good weather in my garden and that I could make something very Spanish like paella. My first paella. For 12.
Not surprisingly things did not go as I had planned in my head. It was actually cold outside and my paella... well... we ate it but it wasn't like a real paella, it was more like a lot of overly cooked rice with vegetables on it.
Given the fiasco in the main dish we were all entirely relaying on the cake. You see… I seem to have a problem repeating recipes and thus, I tend to try something new almost every time I bake so I had no idea how this would turn out.
I completely fell in love.
I have no words.
Well... I do have words, I always do but this was seriously too good to be true.
I had never tried a Mississippi mud pie before so I have no idea if it turned out like it should have but it was amazing! It has a layer of chocolate cake, another one of chocolate pudding and all of that hold by an Oreo crust and, to top it all up, whipped cream.
The pictures don’t really make justice and you can’t see the pudding but it was there!
I did change something though: I didn’t add the coffee powder as I hate, really hate coffee. What I did was that I substituted the amounts with cocoa powder, yes, more chocolate is always a great option.
Here's the recipe, despite the amount of work it has I think it's totally worth it and something that I will (and that's for sure) make again, and again, and again.
