Mississippi Mudslide Cake

Mississippi Mudslide Cake is a delicious chocolate cake that is typically made with coffee, chocolate, and a variety of other ingredients. Here’s how to prepare it:


  • 1 cup of unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of strong brewed coffee, cooled
  • 1/2 cup of Kahlua or other coffee-flavored liqueur
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 2 cups of chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of chopped pecans


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  5. Stir in the cooled coffee and coffee liqueur until the batter is smooth.

  1. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  2. While the cake is baking, prepare the frosting. In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over low heat until it just begins to simmer.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  4. Once the cake has finished baking, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool for at least 15 minutes before frosting it.

  1. Pour the chocolate frosting over the top of the cake, spreading it out evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle the chopped pecans over the top of the frosting.
  2. Serve the cake warm or at room temperature. Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
