Chocolate Biscuit Cake

Chocolate Biscuit Cake

This recipe is one I have taken from my mums book of recipes, one that we often made as children, I remember always having great fun smashing up the biscuits with a rolling pin- perfect for anger management or getting out any stresses you may have!

One of the great things about this recipe (apart from it being really yummy) is that it doesn’t require using the oven. It’s relatively quick and easy, the only waiting is while it’s in the fridge. So go on, give it a try…

Ingredients
4oz Butter
1 dessertspoon brown sugar
3 dessertspoons cocoa powder
3oz raisins or sultanas
2 tablespoons golden syrup
8oz Rich Tea biscuits

Additional ingredients: Chopped walnuts, coconut, cherries

Method
1. Melt and mix together all the ingredients, except the biscuits, in a saucepan.
2. Crush the biscuits (this is where you get out the rolling pin! Put the biscuits in a bag before hitting them however).
3. Add the crushed biscuits to the mixture.
4. Once fully mixed place into a Swiss roll tin and press down.
5. Leave to harden (in the fridge).
6. Later turn out and cover with melted chocolate.

I actually adapted this slightly and poured on the melted chocolate before placing in the fridge to harden. Both ways work equally well, it’s up to personal preference.
