This four-ingredient chocolate fridge cake is fit for a king, and no baking is required. This easy-to-make chocolate biscuit cake was chosen by Prince William as his wedding cake.
Chocolate Fridge Cake
Serves 8 – 12
• 8 ounces digestive biscuits or supermarket cookies of your choice
• 4 ounces of butter
• 10 ounces of dark chocolate or chocolate of your choice
• 5 ounces of light corn syrup, honey, or golden syrup
1. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. (You can also use a spring form pan or 9 inch cake pan.)
2. Put the cookies in a Ziploc bag and break them up with a rolling pin or similar. Stop when you have a mix of differently sized broken pieces — you’re not aiming for crumbs here.
3. In a large pan, melt the butter over medium heat. (Optional: Keep the butter on the heat a few minutes longer, until it has foamed up and browned.)
4. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate and syrup. Stir until well combined.
5. Reserve a few tablespoons of the chocolate mix for your glaze.
6. Add the broken cookies to the pan, stirring until they are well combined and coated.
7. Pour the mixture into your pan, gently pressing down into all sides. The cake will be jagged and lumpy.
8. Drizzle your reserved chocolate glaze on top.
9. Chill at least one hour. Bring to room temperature before unmolding and serving. Ascend to the throne.
