A few days back, as we rambled the lanes and the alleys of the downtown simply window shopping and buying a few grocery items for a coming birthday party, my little boys asked me to make the chocolate biscuit cake inspired by Prince William’s Wedding Reception.
This is one of the simplest cakes to make, as it is extremely delicious, being so full of encrusted chocolates and biscuits glistening among layers of golden syrup.
What is even better, it does not require any baking and indeed, it is one of the finest yet easiest baking recipe of all the times.
I found this online recipe from my favourite food blogger, who often publishes the most awe-inspiring recipes on her food blogs.
So, it was done, decided and shopped for, right there, as the boys cheered at the very idea of their favourite cake recipe come to real at last.
The Chocolate Biscuit Cake Recipe first made waves a few years back when it was highlighted to be a hit success amongst the aristocratic taste buds of the British Royal Family and thus, even after years, thousands of eager food bloggers around the world have tried to catch hold of the exact recipe.
A lot of famous food websites and cake blogs have published it and this is how it got landed in my hands, using the most discoverable ingredients.
We went to the local grocery store to buy a bottle of golden syrup, a big box of McVities’ original Digestive Cookies and cornstarch syrup, as per the recipe ingredients.
Serves: 25 servings
- 2 pounds of dark chocolate
- 1 pound of Kisan oil
- A pinch of salt
- ¼ cup of whipped cream
- ⅓ cup of golden syrup
- 1 pound of digestive biscuits
For the Chocolate Ganache
- ½ cup whipping cream
- 1 tbsp. of corn syrup
- 8 ounces of chopped dark chocolate
Heat the Kisan oil over moderate heat.
Add the chocolate and salt and continue to melt them over medium low heat until the chocolate melts completely.
Remove them from heat and stir in the whipped cream and golden syrup until a rich, smooth texture is attained.
Now, fold in the broken biscuits and pour them into a 9 inch spring form pan that has been lined with plastic wrap or a piece of parchment.
Chill the mixture in the fridge for almost four hours and for better results, keep it overnight.
Remove from the pan and coat it with chocolate ganache.
How to make the Chocolate ganache
Scald the cream in the microwave until it boils well and simmers.
Pour over chocolate in a small-sized bowl and let it stand for almost five more minutes.
Stir until it is velvety and smooth then dribble the corn syrup on the chocolate.
Pour over the cooled biscuit cake using a good spatula to help cover it equally and smoothly.
As the cake is ready, move it into a good cake dish and serve it to your excited family and friends’ circle and just party away!
