A Rustic Version of the Duke`s Cake


So as promised here is my rather rustic version of Will`s favourite chocolate biscuit cake.  I didn`t cover it with chocolate as it was just for Zaki and me and I made it with McVities` Digestives as you can`t get Rich Tea biscuits here.  It`s good.  It`s rich.  It tastes like a rather large and squidgy McVities` chocolate digestive.  Would I make it again?  Perhaps. Like all refrigerator cakes, it was simple beyond belief. Next time, perhaps I`d add some nuts, coconut or dried fruit.

Hmmm, since I don't know what kind of biscuits to purchase, I would probably pass on making this one, but if I'm ever at your house for tea, you can make it for me. Looks yummy!

Di - my American friends here say that Graham Crackers are the closest thing to a digestive. I don`t know as I`ve never seen one but I trust them! I`d love to have tea with you one day...

Hmmmm... you're not selling it well. You sound so-so about the whole thing. Think that there are too many things in the world to bake (or not as the case may be) to go for one you are not completely thrilled with. Thanks for the report.

Don`t get me wrong Susan - it does what it says on the tin...it`s a chocolate biscuit cake. Not thrilling but tasty all the same and I like recipes without lots of ingredients!

It sounds wonderful to me.
Graham crackers are often used here as a crunched up base for cheesecake.
A little bit digestive-y.
But either biscuits would work....
