Chocolate Fridge Cake

Total Time:
22 min
5 min
2 min
15 min

4 servings

  • 5 1/4 ounces (150 grams) digestive biscuits
  • 3 1/2 ounces (100 grams) pecans
  • 3 1/2 ounces (100 grams) pistachio nuts
  • 10 glace cherries
  • 2 ready made meringue nests, crumbled into small pieces
  • 5 1/4 ounces (150 grams) butter
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup
  • 7 ounces (200 grams) good quality chocolate
  • Cocoa powder, for dusting

Break the biscuits into small pieces directly into a large bowl. Add the pecans, pistachio nuts, cherries and bits of meringue. Put the rest of the ingredients, except the cocoa powder, into a bowl and put over a pan of simmering water on low heat to melt.

Mix the ingredients together and place in the container which acts as your mold. To help with turning out, line a 12 by 8-inch (30 by 20 centimeter) container with cling film, first leaving plenty of extra film at the edges to fold over the top.

Leave in the refrigerator to firm up then turn out and cut into chunky slices. This cake can be kept in an airtight container and actually improves after a couple of days.

I saw the episode were Jaime was making this about 6 years ago and back then I didn't know I could get the recipes of of, or maybe they didn't have this service back the. However, I made the chocolates right after I saw the episode and it was all gone within an hour after it was ready. Since then I lost the recipe and now after doing much research in foodnetwork's website, I'm glad that I found it again. Thank you Jaimie, I really miss your shows. item not reviewed by moderator and published
