Cherry Tiffin Cake Recipe

Last week was my wedding anniversary.

Something that I always make for my husband on anniversaries and birthdays is his favourite cake, Tiffin.

This time round I decided to change it up a little by adding cherries.

The recipe below shows just how simple it is to make.

Ingredients

* 2 Tbsp Castor Sugar
* 2 Tbsp Golden Syrup
* 4 Tsp Cocoa
* 110g Butter
* 250g Digestive Biscuits
* Handful of Raisins
* 100g Natural Glace Cherries
* 300g Milk Chocolate


Preparation

* First task, grease a tin ready for the cake mixture.

* Crush the biscuits. You can do this using a rolling pin or do as I did and cheat by popping the biscuits in a food processor.

* Put the sugar, golden syrup, cocoa and butter in a saucepan and heat. Stir continually until all the ingredients have melted together.

* Mix in the biscuits, raisins and cherries.

* Soon the mixture into the tin, making sure to press down so that the mixture is nice and compact.

* Melt the chocolate. I do this in the microwave, heating 40 seconds at a time.

* Spread the melted chocolate over the biscuit mixture.

* Place in the fridge for an hour to set.

* Once set you can cut the tiffin cake into slices. I like to have small square slices but you can of course cut them into whatever size/shape that you want.


These are great eaten by themselves with and afternoon cuppa but also just a lovely served as a pudding with custard.
