PRINCE WILLIAM'S GROOM'S CAKE


It seems the whole world is obsessed with the impending royal nuptials scheduled for this Friday. Although I will not be watching, I am still interested in the cake! What does royalty serve on such an occasion?  While the royal wedding cake recipe is yet under lock and key, the groom's cake has been revealed.

I certainly wouldn't have expected this cake.  Sure, the groom's cake is usually much less fancy than the wedding cake... but this?  This refrigerator cake is simple and easy enough for common-folk like myself to whip up in no time flat.  I'm not even sure why it's called a "cake".  It's fairly dense, intensely chocolaty, and reminds me more of a candy bar.


I decided to make this on a whim, and I wasn't sure I'd be able to locate the McVities Rich Tea Biscuits called for in the recipe.  My best option locally was World Market, and ten minutes later I was walking out of the store with McVities in hand. 


If you can't find McVities brand, any plain, crispy cookie would work. 


Enjoy!



Chocolate Biscuit Cake

Lightly adapted recipe from Eating Royally by Darren McGrady

1/2 tsp. softened butter for greasing pan
8 oz. McVities rich tea biscuits, broken into pieces
1/2 stick (4 tbsp) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup extra find granulated sugar
4 oz. (about 1/2 cup) chopped chocolate or chocolate chips
1 egg, beaten
8 oz. chocolate for icing
Cinnamon for dusting

Lightly grease a 6" spring form pan.  Set aside.  Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl until mixture has lightened in color.

Melt 4 oz. chocolate in a double boiler. Add butter and sugar mixture to the chocolate stirring constantly.  Add the egg and continue to stir.  Fold in biscuit pieces until they are all coated with the chocolate mixture.

Spoon the chocolate coated biscuits into the cake pan.  Press firm with the back of a spoon to fill in any gaps - the bottom of the cake will be the top when turned out.  Chill the cake in the refrigerator for 3 hours.

Remove cake and unmold on a wire rack.  Melt the 8 oz of chocolate (I did this in the microwave) and pour over the cake.  Spread smooth with an off-set spatula.  Allow chocolate coated cake to sit at room temperature until chocolate is set.  When set, run a spatula under the cake to remove from wire rack (chocolate makes it stick a little).  Transfer to a fancy serving platter, slice and serve.
