This rich, dense chocolate cake, also often called a pie, is adapted from "New Southern Cooking" by Nathalie Dupree, an award-winning author of eleven cookbooks about the American South. Ms. Dupree says that the cake's top should be cracked and dry-looking like Mississippi mud in the hot dry summer, from which it gets its name. It is covered with a buttery cocoa and pecan icing to really take it over the top. Similar recipes, like the Muddy Fudge Pie, were likely named after this classic dessert.
