Caramel Mud CakeThis is the second time I have made this Caramel Mud Cake in the last two weeks. The first cake disappeared before I could photograph it! I would like to be able to blame the kids, but I have to admit that I had my fair share, (okay, maybe a little more than my share).

The most divine thing about this cake is after one minute in the microwave, the white chocolate ganache becomes a syrupy sauce for the warm Caramel Mud Pudding.  Whether you eat it as a pudding or cake it is amazing.
