    Younger members won't have a clue what I'm laughing about; older members who know who Sir Sidney RoughDiamond, Private Widdle et al were, will understand.


    Erm.... I never knew Tiffin was even a real cake!!! I always thought it was a humourous reference to the "activity" :D in the film...... (I owe MIL an apology.... I always smirked at her - and still never cottoned on) :o

    Me and OH went to Co$ta Coffee for a treat a couple of days ago and he got a chocolate tiffin to eat. He really enjoyed it and I was wondering if anyone had a recipe? It was chocolate, biscuits and raisins so I was thinking it might be straight forward!

    Thanks in advance :D

    It's sometimes known as chocolate biscuit cake :)

    As this has fallen from the front page of OS, I'll add this to the existing thread to give you more recipe ideas. I have a new recipe that goes down very well; I'll post it later ;)

  • we always called it refridgerator cake in our house and its a great recipe to teach young kids as other than melting the chocolate and the treacle etc (which we do in the micro for safety) theres no hot saucepans involved just a bit of stirring and lots of licking yummy chocolate of the inside of mixing Bowls.

    Its also nice to mix the recipe up a bit and if u like a very sweet version swap the biscuits for Ginger nuts and the fruit for dried appricots and the milk chocolate to white still rather yummy !!

    I don't make it too often because I'm terrible at eating it;)

    Made one the other day though, and used part shortbread, part Nice biscuits (from sburys basics pack), plus a few crumbled amaretti left from Christmas. For the fruit a few chopped apricots plus a handful of finely chopped crystallized ginger (still using a rather large bag dated 2009).
    Oh and the chocolate topping was sburys basics too, half dark half milk.
    Really yummy variation.
    I always check the recipe for the weight of biscuits & fruit, then just use whatever I have/fancy. You can swap some of either for nuts, good way to use the e.g. the last few bits of walnut pieces in a bag.

    It's still really good at its plainest, using Rich tea biscuits and some raisins.
