Through this blog, I have got the opportunity to connect with people akin to me, who have a flair for cooking and revere desserts. I feel fortunate that they have taken time out, to share their recipes, stories and thoughts through my blog.
My first Guest writer is my dear friend Avisha Shah, an undergraduate student at the City University, London. A true dessert enthusiast, in her spare time she loves experimenting with new ingredients and techniques in order to create mouth-watering desserts. I hope you enjoy her recipe, which is easy to make and requires a minimal effort.
Ovens, ovens, ovens! That is all that we think of when we decide to make a cake. But, today I am going to share a recipe of a fridge cake that I found but changed it to my liking. It’s still as delicious and fantastic as an oven-baked cake. Yes bakers, we do not only need an oven to bake! Baking for me is trying out new techniques and experiment with everything and anything, as long as the result tastes good – to me and everyone I share my food with.
This recipe entails 4 simple ingredients that we probably all keep in our houses and although it is easy – it is still fun to make especially if you want to try out your skills at cooking/baking and love to experiment.
CHOCOLATE & RICE KRISPIES NO BAKE CAKE
SERVES- 6-8 People
* 1 teaspoon of Butter
* 1½ Cups of Kellogg’s Rice krispies/Cereal
* 3 Slabs of Caramel chocolate
* 2 Slabs of Milk chocolate
1. Cut the caramel chocolate (Dairy milk/ Galaxy) to small pieces and melt it either in a pan over a medium heat or a microwave. Once its smooth add the butter. Make sure the mixture is smooth and runny.
2.Once its melted, take it off the stove and add the rice krispes. Make sure they’re completely covered with chocolate. If necessary melt more chocolate and add.
3.To set the mixture, place it in a box (if you want a cake) or a baking tray.
4.Place in the fridge for 30-40 minutes and then remove it.
5.Melt the milk chocolate (Dairy Milk/Galaxy) in the same way as the caramel chocolate, till its smooth and pour it over the cake, thus making a thick layer and make sure it’s leveled.
6.Place it back into the fridge for another 30 minutes till it’s properly set.
My Tip-You can cut the cake in any shape you want, if you want square pieces or if you want to keep it as a whole cake. Decorations are not necessary, but you can sprinkle it with sprinkles if you want to make it look colourful!
Hope you enjoy making this. And you can mess around with the ingredients as well and experiment! Enjoy! 🙂
