Beating bowel cancer together

Nadia Sawalha’s Chocolate Refrigerator Cake

Nadia Sawalha is amongst the celebrities calling on the nation to put the kettle on and host a Brew Together fundraising event from Monday 7 - Sunday 13 October.

Held at home, in a community hall or at work, it's a chance to catch up with friends, family and colleagues over a cup of tea and make a donation to the charity to help stop people dying from bowel cancer.

 

Ingredients

  • 450g butter
  • 450g dark chocolate, broken into pieces (or for a softer more dessert-like cake, half and half dark and milk chocolate)
  • 4 tbsps milk
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 4 dsps caster sugar (or coconut sugar is nice)
  • 450g broken biscuits
  • ½ cup chopped mixed nuts
  • ½ cup chopped glacé cherries
  • 3 tbsps raisins or sultanas
  • Some extra whole cherries for decoration

 

Method

  • Lightly grease a 20cm loose-bottomed cake tin.

  • Melt the butter slowly.
  • Melt the chocolate with the milk in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, being careful not to let the bowl touch the water.
  • Whisk the eggs with the sugar and then, drip by drip, whisk in the melted butter.
  • Whisk the melted chocolate into the egg mixture until it is completely absorbed.
  • Stir in the biscuits, nuts and dried fruits (reserve a few of the biscuits for the top of the cake). Scoop into the cake tin.
  • Push the reserved broken biscuits halfway into the top of the cake and add a few glacé cherries. Place in the fridge until set. Can easily be made the day before
