Author Notes: A no bake confection made with classic British Ingredients (well, almost except for the Godiva.. since I could not get my hands on some Traditional Cadbury's Bourneville dark..) —Panfusine
Makes: 1 small loaf tin
No Bake Cake
7 oz (2 bars) Godiva orange flavored dark chocolate
1/2 cup orange Marmalade (I used Keillers )
7-8 digestive biscuits crumbled into big pieces
1/4 cup confectioners or icing sugar (adjust as per your sweet tooth)
2 tbsp unsalted butter
tablespoons Ribena Blackcurrant syrup
Optional Chocolate Ganache Icing
1 bar (3.5 oz) dark chocolate
tablespoons heavy cream
tablespoons unsalted butter
teaspoon Sea salt crystals
slivers of candied orange peel
- Line a small loaf tin with cling wrap, leaving some extra wrap to hang over the edges
- Heat the marmalade, Ribena blackcurrant Syrup, and icing sugar (I chose to omit this since I prefer to under sweeten my desserts, but you may add it as per taste) on low heat till it melts into a thick syrup.
- Remove from heat, Add the crumbled biscuits and mix well to coat the biscuits completely with the marmalade mixture. Allow to sit for 10 - 15 minutes for the marmalade mixture to soak in.
- Break the chocolate up into squares. Combine with the butter and heat in a microwave for ~ 1 minute. Stir well till the chocolate is completely melted, shiny & combined with the butter.
- Add the chocolate to the biscuit / marmalade mixture and stir to ensure that the biscuits are completely enrobed with in the chocolate.
- Pour the mix into the lined loaf tin. Smooth the surface with an offset spatula. Cover the surface of the cake with the overhanging cling wrap and leave in the refrigerator to chill for ~ 2 hrs.
- Heat the ingredients for the ganache icing (except for the sea salt and candied orange peel) in a double boiler and mix well until smooth & shiny.
- Once the cake has chilled, remove the cling wrap and drizzle with the ganache. Sprinkle with the sea salt crystals and the bits of candied orange peel.
