as there seemed to be some interest in the above mentioned cake i will give below the receipe which was given to me about 10 years ago (as you can see by oz and not grams!) by a very dear friend and has been made literally hundreds of times - its great to do because its no cook! just put in fridge - hurrah!
4 oz butter
2 tabs golden syrup
8 oz rich T (or digestive) biscuits
1 oz raisins
2 oz quartered glace cherries
5 oz chocolate (cooking choc is fine)
1 loaf tin
melt butter , chocolate and syrup in saucepan (or in a bowl in microwave). mix well - put in larger bowl and add biscuits which have been crushed (plastic bag and rolling pin!). stir well and then add fruit. press into loaf tin (lined first) and place in fridge for at least 3 hours - the longer the better. then eat! wonderous!
if i had mastered the pics side of things i would post one but have not got that far yet!
the pic of the two dogs are my two cavalier king charles (my daughter put that one on for me)- the little one is molly and is the newest addition to our family - she's like a tasmanian devil and you need eyes in the back of your head!
but she's so cute. latest thing chewed was a tube of savlon - luckily she did not get much! loves to get in with my knitting which explains why i have not got much done lately!
she loves it when i go through my stuff, especially yarns - on one of my rare tidying up days (don't do that to stash too often as suddenly realise how much i have) i found some wool i had spun years ago - i used to have wensleydale sheep - she loved the smell of that (i would hasten to add that it had been washed, but spun wool does retain a slight sheepy smell for a while) - only enough for a scarf but thought i would do it as a pick up when i have a five minute window!
well, talking of dogs, time to take the little dears out for a belt around. hope you enjoy the cake.
