If your following me on instagram, then you'll have seen my sneakpeak of an upcoming post on Mars Bar Cake. Well The day is finally here; today I'm showing you how to achieve that deviousness. This recipe is from my copy of 'The Primrose Bakery Book', as I actually can't bake unless following a proper recipe. This recipe is very easy and perfect to do as a family activity.
The recipe calls for:
70g Unsalted Butter
3tbsp Golden Syrup
6 58g Mars Bars
Line your chosen baking tin with baking paper. The recipe calls for a 20" round tin, but I felt that this square tin you work better for the purpose.
Chop up the Mars Bars in itty-bitty little pieces; the size and shape does not matter at all. Just break them down so that they are not big cubes.
Melt the butter and golden syrup in a saucepan over a low heat until both are combined. Do not stop stirring! After both are melted, add the chopped Mars Bars.
The Mars Bars will take a long time to melt down, but resist the urge to turn up the heat. Chocolate will seize up if it is melted directly on a heat that reaches too big. If hat does happen, then I'm afraid you'll have to start over from scratch.
Add the cornflakes to the butter-golden syrup-Mars Bar mixture, removing from the heat, and mix together. You'll need some muscle for this part as one the mixture begins to cool, it starts to become very sticky.
Spoon the mixture into your baking tin, making sure that there is an even layer across the tin. All that's left to do if to leave it in the fridge for a couple of hours so that it sets.
Slice and Serve!!
Doesn't that look yummy! I wish there was some left right now, as I'm a fair bit peckish. But, it felt good to get back into baking. I need to try harder to do some on a semi-regular basis. It's just difficult to find the time at the moment.
What's your favourite cake or buiscut to bake?
