Fiesta Friday #16 ~ a little bit of choccie for anyone?

So here we are rocking on to Fiesta Friday #16

This weeks entry is entirely my choice, but oh wow the kids love it. I made it with my youngest and oh boy, it is a powerful chocolate cake, really is, unless you are completely hard core it will last you ages.

I cannot really eat it on its own unless I just take the teeniest chunk off, but however, tadah, OH MY with ice cream it is simply divine, it is a must, please try it, it is so simple!

I would however be more inclined to call it “Rocky Choccy Cake”….

The visuals as always first πŸ™‚ – We had a little break inbetween as of course for an 8 year old a game of Toot and Otto is a must whilst delights cool off in the fridge!

Β Rerigerator Chocolate Cake

Refrigerator Chocolate Cake

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients

  • 225g/8oz plain chocolate
  • 225g/8oz unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 3 tbsp of black coffee
  • 55g/2oz soft light brown sugar
  • a few drops of vanilla extract
  • 225g/8oz digestive biscuits, crushed

Method

  1. Grease and line a 450g or 1 lb loaft tin. Β Place the chocolate, butter, coffee, sugar and vanilla extract in a saucepan over a low heat and stir until the chocolate and butter have melted, the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is well combined.
  2. Stir in the crushed biscuits, the raisins and walnuts and stir well.
  3. Spoon the mixture in to the prepared loaf tin. Β Leave to set for 1-2 hours in the regrigerator, then turn out and cut in to thin slices to serve.

As always thank you for reading, I hope you have a fandabby dosie weekend lined up, anything exciting planned?

    what you are now submitting FF a day ahead, isnt that just a teensy bit overly smug dont you think???’ Greetings from Poli in Switzerland with a to do list of 1) write inspirational quote for publishing on a website (not mine) (and its about work so harder), 2) review about 30 documents by today for a conference

    Or more likely: take brain out and put into a pickling jar with some electrodes to recharge (oh wait, that doesnt work does it..) or open a bottle of wine and put feet up or go out for dinner.

    FF – I am thinking about you, but will celebrate first and hopefully post tomorrow – or manana
