I’ve been using this recipe for broken biscuit cake for years and it,s never let me down. My best buddy was asking me for it on Monday gone, for her little fellas birthday and I just copped that I haven’t shared it with you guys yet.
Every year for all the birthdays (all of them) I make My broken biscuit love heart cake!
I bought a love heart mould in Lidl a few years ago and put it like this, I’ve got my money,s worth.
Any of the kids I make the cake for Always say “Jolene makes us a love heart cake because she loves us so much” which is just adorable. (but the truth is im getting my moneys worth from that mold.
Lil,s talks about this cake all the time, She will ramble on about her birthday and will name all the things she’s going to get and the love heart cake is top of the list! It’s my favourite recipe, because of the great memories it has attached to it and she always help,,s make it with me.
This broken biscuit recipe will work in any 12-inch tin, lined with cling film. So it doesn’t have to be a love heart (that’s just for my guys 😉 )
The reason it tastes so good? is only 1 packet of digestives goes in, that way it has more of a toffee and caramel taste than biscuity if you get me?
I usually just top it Cadbury,s caramel spread and sprinkles. (you can get this in most supermarkets in the uk and Ireland)
Anyone who has ever had a taste will say it’s the best biscuit cake that they, ,ve ever tasted (Not to blow my own trumpet,) The Caramel spread really gives it the edge over the others

2 large bars of chocolate 200g (get the good stuff.)
around 150 mls of golden syrup,
200 grams margarine ..
1 standard pack of digestives 400g pack
Caramel spread to finish,
Top with sprinkles, and your favorite toppings like smarties, buttons, maltessers
(* note slight recipe change from butter to maragane as it melts better)
step 1, Break up chocolate and crush biscuits
Step 2, Melt the margarine, golden syrup and chocolate together in a pan over a extremely low heat.
Make sure the heat is low, and it doesn’t simmer it will take around 25 mins to melt together, Low and slow is the way to go)
Step 3, Stir to make sure all the ingredients are well mixed together and all margarine is melted.
Step 4, Add broken digestives and give a good mix
Put into a cake tin lined with cling film and leave in the fridge overnight…
top with caramel spread and sprinkles after a full night in the fridge.
AND THAT’S IT
or you can be really fancy and add chocolate fingers around the edges and add Maltesers to the top. (only for really
or for any little men in your life … This construction topping is so easy and looks amazing (I got the idea from one of the mums over on the home cooks Ireland group)
all you need to do top the cake with caramel spread, stencil out the number on paper, place the number on the cake and top with crushed Oreos or bourbon creams .. I got the tar look of the number by painting it with a mixture red and green of food coloring.
enjoy and Happy birthday x
