It's the start of the school summer holidays here. Minibakebakegirl really enjoyed her last week of Primary School. They performed three nights of The Lion King, we went to see it on the Wednesday night - it was excellent. It has still been very hot here and the Headmistress did say that they had recreated the Africa ambiance in the hall! After the show there was the Year 6 presentation for all the leavers where they were each presented with a dictionary. There was a slide show with photos of all her year from reception to their school journey last month. I did have a lump in my throat - little diddy Minibakebakegirl - where has the last 6.5 years gone....
As I said it has continued to be hot here (apart from Saturday and early Sunday which was very cloudy) so I didn't fancy baking today. Instead I made a fridge cake. Fridge cakes are great as you can just throw in what you like: nuts, maltesers, other biscuits, chopped dried fruits - they all work well.
1 tbp water
200g chocolate - chopped
125g digestive biscuits - broken into small pieces
125g glace cherries
This can be made in any sized baking tray or even dolloped into cupcake cases. it depends how thick or thin you would like it to be. Today when I made this I halved the ingredients and made it in a loaf tin with a loaf tin liner. If you are making this in a tin it is best to line with cling film, this will make it easier to take out and slice.
Place the butter, marshmallows and water in a saucepan and stir over a low heat until melted. Add the chocolate and again stir until melted and combined. Remove from the heat and stir in the biscuits, cherries and raisins until coated.
Pour into the tin. Place in the fridge and chill for a couple of hours until firm. Slice and enjoy. This is best kept in an airtight container in the fridge - actually I might get in with it to cool down!
See you next week,
