Since today is Easter Sunday I thought I’d simply wish you all a happy Easter and allow you all to look upon the wonderful creation that is my Easter cake. There really isn’t much to say regarding this creation, it’s made of copious amounts of chocolate and that’s all the information one needs. However, see if you can spot the little not-quite-so-secular Easter themed nod hidden within. Have a lovely day and don’t binge too much.

Easter Tiffin Cake
Makes one 18” cake
• 200g digestive biscuits, finely crushed
• 230g dark chocolate, melted
• 100g butter, melted
• 150g raisins
• 4 tbsp golden syrup
• 2 tbsp dark cocoa powder
• 2 handfuls of cornflakes, roughly crushed
• 12 mini eggs
1. Grease an appropriately sized cake tin. In a pan melt together the butter, 30g of the chocolate and 3 tbsp of golden syrup. Mix this with the biscuit, cornflakes, cocoa powder and raisins. Push this firmly and evenly into the bottom of the cake tin. Melt the remaining chocolate and pour it over the top. Press the eggs into the molten chocolate using the design depicted in the photos. Chill for at least an hour before eating.
Cost: This really and truly is a frugal Easter treat, you may forget overpriced chocolate moulded into inexplicably large eggs. This cake shall set one back a mere £1.60, the price of a single, extortionate, Easter egg.
