  • 125g caster sugar

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • 500g dark cooking chocolate

  • 1kg condensed milk

  • 1 tbsp syrup

  • 500g digestive biscuits crushed

  • 230g margarine (or butter)

  • 170g raisins


  1. First, make 'Janet's fudge cake' - saves washing the pot.
  2. Melt 125g butter or margarine with the caster sugar, a tablespoon of syrup and half of the condensed milk.
  3. Boil for 4 minutes, until it turns brown.
  4. Add half of the crushed digestive biscuits.
  5. Put in a swiss roll tin and cover with melted chocolate.
  6. Second, make 'Lesley's Choc Cake'.
  7. Melt the rest of the butter or margarine and 170g cooking chocolate.
  8. Add the rest of the crushed digestive biscuits, 170g raisins and the rest of the condensed milk.
  9. Spread in to a swiss roll tin and put in the fridge for several hours.
  10. Cut into small squares.

Handy Hint

You can of course just do one of the traybakes; simply half the ingredients. They are easy to make with the kids, if you are careful with the hot condensed milk. Get them to press the mixture into the tins.

    Just got 2 traybakes cooling in the fridge...very easy and quick to make. I don't know if Swiss roll tins come in different sizes but I don't think you could make it in the one I have, you'd never spread it thinly enough. I used trays roughly 7x10 inches and it was fine.

    I made these in less than half an hour ready to take to school tomorrow - the fudge cake is fantastic (it's v rich, I do feel a bit sick now lol!), and the choc cake looks amazing, it's in the fridge setting hopefully. To clarify, there is only one size can of condensed milk available - the one referred to as large ie enough for two trays and the trays need to be pretty small (I don't have a proper swiss roll tray), I used 8oz digestives in both recipes as my packet had 25% free and I couldn't work out what half a normal packet would be! The only caveat would be that the mixes will get very hot so this is not one for making with the children I wouldn't think.
