Chocolate Biscuit Fridge Cake


No word of a lie, this fridge cake was so nice that when our house was burgled a few years back, the thieves stole it from our fridge! Forget the stolen jewellery and tech; I was most upset about the fact they had the cheek to take my beloved fridge cake that I was looking forward to eating when I got home!

I made this yesterday for the first time in ages, just for nostalgia’s sake, and it tasted as good as ever. The recipe comes from my favourite cook book ‘Just like mother used to make’ by Tom NorringtonĀ Davies. I recommend looking him up, as his recipes are awesome!

Anyway, I followed his recipe but used the humble digestive biscuit instead of Ameretti ones. So if you are ever craving chocolate and fancy something chewy and biscuity too, give this a try. It’s ridiculously easy to make and will hit your sweet spot instantly šŸ˜‹
