Nutrition: (optional)


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 12 chocolate-covered biscuit sticks
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • Gummy pig candies, for decoration
  • Chocolate sprinkles, for decoration


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla extract. Mix well until all the ingredients are combined.
  4. Gradually add the boiling water to the batter, stirring continuously. The batter will be thin, but that’s okay.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. While the cake is baking, prepare the chocolate ganache by combining the chocolate chips, heavy cream, and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  7. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Once the cake is completely cooled, pour the chocolate ganache over the top, allowing it to drip down the sides. Spread the ganache evenly using a spatula.
  9. Break the chocolate-covered biscuit sticks in half and insert them into the cake at an angle to resemble pigs stuck in the mud.
  10. Sprinkle chocolate sprinkles on top of the cake to mimic dirt and place gummy pig candies on the sticks.
  11. Sift powdered sugar over the cake for a final touch.
  12. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
