Baking Club - Fridge Cake

We were very fortunate that during the last few weeks of Ruby's school, all the children in the foundation stage were given the opportunity to take part in the 'Baking Club'. During Ruby's time at baking club she made some cakes, cookies and some very tasty fridge cake. I have to say the best thing that she made was the fridge cake and at Ruby's request I am sharing the recipe with you so that you can make it too.

Ingredients



 250g Digestive Biscuits
300g Milk Chocolate
100g Unsalted Butter
150g Golden Syrup
100g Dried Apricots
75g Raisins

Method

Put the Biscuits in a plastic bag and bash them with a rolling pin


 Break up the chocolate into bits


Add the butter to the bowl of chocolate


Melt the butter and chocolate over a pan of simmering water, add in the golden syrup and stir well


Chop up the apricots and place them into a bowl with the raisins


Remove the bowl from the heat and add in the broken biscuits and fruit


Make sure you stir everything really well


Line a 20cm (8in) tin with cling film and place the mixture into the tin


Use a potato masher to press down the mixture into the tray


Set the cake in the fridge for 1-2 hours or overnight.


Remove from the fridge when set and cut into pieces and enjoy!


As the fridge cake was such a hit, Ruby decided that she would like to make some as thank you gifts for her teachers; I placed the fridge cake into a mug and wrapped it in cellophane and tied it all together with a bow. I was quite impressed with the end result.



Ruby's Fridge Cake has even appeared on BBC Radio Leicester...... twice!
