Recently I had a pal coming round for dinner and realised that I didn’t have anything sorted for pudding – there was no ice cream in the fridge, no custard in the cupboard and I’d definitely not baked a cake. So I rummaged around in the kitchen and basically threw everything I could find into a bowl and mashed it together – this fridge cake was finished and ready to set in the fridge after less-than 5 minutes. I’d got the basic recipe from “Justin’s Annual” that my husband had bought me for Christmas because he knows how much I love Something Special, and then added anything I could to make it extra yummy.
- Melt 125g butter and 225g milk chocolate and 2 tablespoons of golden syrup in a bowl over hot water or in the microwave.
- Crush up digestive biscuits and cookies and mix into the chocolate mixture – you could add anything else you have in the cupboards too – cornflakes, rice crispies, penguin bars or any biscuits you like.
- I then added in chopped cherries and some mini marzipan chocolate bars, but you could add anything you like – a handful of raisins, white chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, even jelly sweets etc.
- Line a tub or tray with cling film and press the mixture into the tub then sprinkle on some hundreds-and-thousands.
- Set in the fridge for at least an hour until firm, then remove from tub (the clingfilm will make this easy) and slice into squares.
I really was the quickest sweet treat I’ve ever made and we all enjoyed helping ourselves to a square of fridge cake after our dinner. Let me know if you give this recipe a go and tweet me your photos @CassiefairyTutu.
