These recipes come courtesy of my mum. I have had the pleasure of trying out the fifteens and the fudge squares. Let’s just say they are extremely more-ish.

FIFTEENS

15 Digestive Biscuits (Crushed)                  15 Pink & white Marshmallows (Halved)

15 Cherries (Halved)                                       Small can of condensed milk (400g)

Desiccated coconut

Method

Mix all ingredients together and form into a roll. Sprinkle coconut onto a piece of greaseproof paper and shape into a roll approximately one and a half inches in diameter. Leave rolled in the paper and leave in the fridge for an hour or till it hardens. Cut into slices and put into bun cases.

FUDGE SQUARES

2 dessertspoons of golden syrup                  4 ozs (120 g) soft brown sugar

6 ozs (170 g) margarine                                   8 ozs (225g) of digestive biscuits (crushed)

Small tin of condensed milk                           Chocolate to cover top (2x 100g bars)

Method

Bring syrup, marg, sugar and milk to the boil. Boil for 5 min. (be very careful as it burns very easily). Add biscuit crumbs. Press into a greased swiss roll tin. Pour melted chocolate on top. Cut into squares when cool.

 

(A medium sized tin of condensed milk will make the squares and the fifteens)

 

ALL IN ONE CUP CAKES

These only take a few minutes to make in a food processor. (Make sure the butter or margarine is soft, especially if you are mixing it by hand).

4 ozs (120 g) of butter (chopped)       4ozs (120 g) of castor sugar

5 ozs (143g) of Flour                                2 eggs

1\4 teasp. baking powder                    1\4 teap. of vanilla essence

Pre heat the oven to 220 C, 425 F, regulo 7

Method

Chop the butter into small pieces it should be fairly soft. Put all the ingredients into the  food processor and whiz for 30 seconds. Clean down the sides and whiz again (30 seconds approx) till the mixture is nice and creamy. Put a large dessert spoonful into each bun case in bun tin and place in oven. Turn down the oven after 5 minutes to 190C, 375, or Reglo 5. Bake for a further 15 minutes till the buns are nicely browned. Cool on a wire tray.

BUTTERFLY BUNS

Cut the top off the buns when they are cold. Cut this piece in half and leave aside. Whip some cream. Put a spoon of jam on the bottom half of the bun, then a spoon of cream. Arrange the cut pieces of the bun like wings on top of the cream and jam and dust with icing sugar.

    I tried the fudge squares and I didn’t follow the recipe exactly and the caramel didn’t set. Remembering to boil the caramel mixture for 5 minutes is key. It needs to be a thick consistency. The taste was divine but consistency was woeful.

    I also tried the fifteens. I added some chopped nuts and dried cranberries instead of the glace cherries as I’m not a major fan and it turned out great.
