Nothing says I love you like cake

Another year goes by, another Valentines day arrives. It seems to be one of those days that gets forgotten, especially since Gracies' birthday is so close to it.

I do however always like to get daddy Hazelden a nice card and this year I decided to make him his favourite cake, using the lovely cooking chocolate that was in my Dr Oetker goodie bag.

Incase you were wondering, his favourite cake is Tiffen cake, here is the recipe I use :


110g (4 oz) buttter

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 4 teaspoons cocoa
  • 225g (8 oz) Rich Tea biscuits, crushed
  • 1 handful of raisins
  • 225g (8 oz) cooking chocolate - half milk & half dark


Here is a picture of the finished product before my lovely husband started eating it all :

And as the chef I had to have a little taste test ;) and I give this cake a big thumbs up!!!!
