Fridge Cake


  • 250g Hobnob biscuits (you can use other biscuits too, for example digestive biscuits)
  • 150g dark chocolate
  • 150g milk chocolate
  • 100g butter
  • 200g golden syrup
  • 100g golden raisins (you can use regular raisins too)
  • 140g walnuts — splash of brandy and a splash of Disaronno (enough for the raisins to soak the alcohol up)

NB: You can use or add different dried fruit and other nuts too


  • Weigh the butter, golden syrup and chocolate in one bowl together and place it into the microwave to melt in 30 second bursts until everything has melted. After each burst of being in the microwave, stir the ingredients together. Place the raisins into a bowl and cover with brandy and disaronno and leave to soak.
  • Draw around the 8×8 inch baking tin on a piece of silicon paper and then cut the square out. Cut four straight pieces of paper to fit the edges of the tin. Get a piece of kitchen paper and use the 20g unsalted butter and the piece of kitchen roll to grease the whole tin, next place the silicon or greaseproof paper in the tin.
  • Weigh the biscuits by placing them into a bowl. Put half of the biscuits into a resealable bag, unless you have a bad big enough to fit all of the biscuits in, seal the bag and then break up the biscuits using a rolling pin. Repeat with the remaining biscuits.
  • When the chocolate, butter and golden syrup have melted and are combined, add the broken biscuits, raisins (including the alcohol) and walnuts. Break the walnuts up as you add them to make smaller pieces. Mix well to combine and ensure all of the ingredients are covered with the chocolate mixture.
  • Place the mixture into the tin. Spread the mixture out evenly and ensure all of the tin is covered.
  • Place the tin into the fridge and leave to set for a minimum of 2 hours.
  • Once the fridge cake has set, remove it from the fridge and remove onto a chopping board.
  • Remove the silicon paper from the fridge cake and then cut the fridge cake into 12 pieces. Place the squares onto a plate or in a container and place into the fridge.
