When my oven broke a couple weeks ago, it took a while to get it fixed (it turned out that it was only the fuse, but I kept forgetting to buy a new one!). Anyway, due to it not working, and having no cakes in the house, I turned to a recipe that a lovely work colleague gave me, which makes no-bake cakes… and they’re super yummy!
I’ve tweaked the recipe a bit, as I wanted it a bit more chocolately, so used dark chocolate for the topping, and added some oreos into the biscuit base…
There’s no measuring scales required, so it’s a useful recipe to have to hand (plus the ease of no baking!)
- 20 digestive biscuits
- 10 oreo biscuits
- ¾ block of butter
- 2 teaspoons of hot chocolate powder
- 1tbsp of golden syrup
- 300g of dark chocolate (Tesco value or whatever does the trick)
- Crush the biscuits in a bag / bowl.
- Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add the chocolate powder and golden syrup. Stir. Add the biscuit crumbs and mix.
- Pour the content into a baking tray and put to set in the fridge for 30 m – 1 hr until firm.
- Melt the dark chocolate over boiling water and pour over the base once it’s set.
- Return to the fridge to set for 1 – 2 h. (* tip – it’s better to cut the cake at room temperature rather than straight out of the fridge as it will crack! – I made this mistake because I was too impatient to taste it).
Enjoy and try not the think about the calories!!
