It’s been the season of birthdays at work of late and a much-loved excuse to bake! So far I’ve made chocolate aubergine cake, a lemon polenta slice, and a fondant fancy. This weekend I decided to try something new: tiffin. Yes, I have never made this fool-proof fridge cake before – but I will again! Fortunately the recipe made more than enough leaving me a sample (or two) to enjoy…
Chocolate, apricot and ginger tiffin
4tbsp caster sugar
2tbsp cocoa powder
2tbsp golden syrup
100g dark chocolate
450g digestive biscuits, crushed
200g dried apricots, chopped
4 balls of stem ginger, chopped
Melt together the butter, sugar, syrup, chocolate and cocoa powder in a bain-marie.
Remove from the heat and stir in the biscuits, apricots and ginger.
Line a tin with cling film, then spoon in the mixture, pressing down firmly.
Place in the fridge to set before cutting into small square pieces.
