Mississippi Mud cake , the name is given because of the resemblance of the banks of Mississippi river. The treat contains a gooey chocolate sauce on top of a crumbly chocolate crusty cake . I tried to make it without eggs and used condensed milk instead . It came out perfect and everyone in the family enjoyed each slice of it. For the second day of BM #33 under Eggless Baking theme, I prepared this cake. So let's start the recipe . Yum
