Grannies chocolate biscuit cake

A favourite family recipe from my mum, much loved by my nephews. They swear nobody makes’CBC’ (chocolate biscuit cake) like Granny can!

It’s a no bake easy recipe, ideal to make with children.

Once you’ve tried it, I’m sure it will become part of your family too!


115 grams unsalted butter

1 tablespoon sugar

2 tablespoons golden syrup

225 grams crushed digestive biscuits

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

1 tablespoon of full fat milk or cream

200g good quality milk chocolate


Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan.

Add the crushed digestives, cocoa powder, milk/cream and mix well.

Press into an 8 inch/20cm square non stick baking tin and chill in the fridge.

Melt the milk chocolate until pouring consistency and pour over the cake, spreading evenly.

Return to the fridge until set.
