Barrie Summy had the fabulous idea of having a July 4th recipe exchange. So…… I live in NZ and we don’t celebrate 4th July…. and I don’t cook….. not a lot of hope for me then. But, suddenly I remembered chocolate biscuit cake, which is what I make on special occasions (not very often because I love it so much I can hardly draw breath without popping a piece in my mouth).
So….. Happy 4th July to all of you in the USA…… and if you make Chcolate Biscuit Cake I promise you won’t be disappointed. Sorry, all measurements are in imperial and not metric. Hopefully you’ll understand what all the ingredients are:
Chocolate Biscuit Cake
8oz of digesstive biscuits – crumbled very finely (I use the end of a rolling pin)
2oz butter or margarine (I use dairy free spread, just as good)
2 tablespoons of golden syrup
4½ oz plain (dark) cooking chocolate
Half an orange
Melt syrup, chocolate and butter in a pan. Stir in the biscuit. Put mixture into a greased tin. Press down all over with the cut side of the orange.
Leave to set. Cut in squares.
