Posh Chocolate Fridge Cake

The easiest cake you’ve ever made and perfect for those who are less keen on traditional Christmas sweet treats.

It is incredibly quick to mix together but remember to leave plenty of time for the cake to set in the fridge or it will crumble as you cut it.

Makes 20 pieces Preparation time: 15 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

200g (7oz) dark chocolate broken into pieces

50g (2oz) butter

2 tablespoons golden syrup

180g pack soft amaretti biscuits or 175g (6oz) good shortbread biscuits, roughly broken into pieces

50g (2oz) pistachio nuts, roughly chopped

175g (6oz) raspberries

150g (5oz) blueberries

75g (3oz) white chocolate, melted

WHAT TO DO:

1. Line a 20cm (8in) shallow square cake tin with a large square of non-stick baking paper, snipping diagonally into the corners of the paper then pressing the paper into the tin so that the base and sides are lined.

2. Add the dark chocolate, butter and golden syrup to a bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water and heat for about 5 minutes, stirring from time to time until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth and glossy.

3. Take the bowl off the heat, add all the biscuits and, keeping a few nuts and berries back for the top, stir the rest into the chocolate mix. Spoon into the paper lined tin and press into an even layer. Sprinkle with the remaining nuts and fruit. Chill for 3 hours until firm.

4. To finish, drizzle the melted white chocolate over the top of the cake in zigzag lines using a dessert spoon, then chill for an extra 30 minutes until set. Lift the cake out of the tin, peel away the paper and cut into small squares.  Keep in the fridge and eat within 2 days.

Wow! Looks absolutely delicious and quite healthy with the nuts, berries and dark chocolate! Any idea of the calorie count per slice? I'd have to run an awful lot of miles to work off the calories I'd consume eating it all within 2 days!

I will check for you Sandra. Are you using the mobile version or on your laptop? It is working on the mobile site, but there is a server error on the main page, which is being investigated now. Hope you can access the mobile version in the meantime Sandra
