                                                                              Iconic Eastick’s Golden Syrup tins.

Prince William and Kate Middleton have revived a Victorian tradition by deciding to feature two cakes at their wedding, a traditional bride’s cake and another less formal cake for the groom.

Prince William has made an unconventional choice for his groom’s cake by requesting a Biscuit Cake made with Chocolate and Golden Syrup.

For all you bakers out there why not share the occasion with your customers. Here is an old recipe we came across in the archives.

1 packet of of Rich Tea Biscuits
170g of Eastick’s Golden Syrup
400g of plain Chocolate
85g of Butter
150g of rum soaked raisins

Put the biscuits into a plastic bag and crush them into irregular pieces, the biggest piece should be no bigger than a 10p coin
Put the Golden Syrup, chocolate and butter in a pan and heated slowly until melted. Stir in the broken biscuits and raisins,
Scrape the mixture into a 12×8 tin lined with plastic and press down well.
Refrigerate until set and cut into squares
Use your imagination to decorate if required
