Preparation time: 10 minutes

    This cake involves no baking. It is hard to describe quite how delicious it is. All I can say is that you will not find a quicker route to chocolate heaven. Do use a high-quality cocoa powder if you can - it really makes a difference.

    Preparation time 10 minutes plus 1 hour in the fridge.

    Ingredients

    ● 4 tbsp golden syrup
    ● 125g butter
    ● 250g digestive biscuits
    ● 3 heaped tbsp good-quality cocoa powder
    ● 75g raisins
    ● 250g plain/dark chocolate

    Method

    ● Pour the syrup into a non-metallic bowl with the butter and melt in the microwave on full power for about 1½ to 2 minutes, or do it in a pan on the hob.
    ● While the butter and syrup are melting, put the biscuits in a plastic bag, seal it and bash them up but don't crumble them to a powder. The chunky bits are the best bits.
    ● Add the cocoa, raisins and biscuit to the melted butter and golden syrup. Pour the mix into a tin and spread it evenly, flattening it down as you go.
    ● Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes (do it in 30 second increments as it will depend on the power of your microwave) or melt it in a bowl sitting on (but not touching) a saucepan of barely simmering water. Spread the melted chocolate evenly over the biscuit base and then put the dish in the fridge.
    ● The cake will be set and ready to eat within 1 hour. It keeps for several days in the fridge in an airtight container.
