- Broken Biscuit Cake

In the old days, when biscuits were sold loose, grocers sold mixed, broken biscuits at a lower price. This recipe was a good way of using them up and as a cake which requires no cooking, it can be easily made by the kids as well as experienced cooks.

One pound plain chocolate
One pound of butter or firm margarine
One pound broken mixed biscuits
Half pound chopped mixed roasted nuts
One teaspoon vanilla a essence (extract)

Melt the butter and chocolate together and stir. Mix in the well broken biscuits, nuts and essence/extract and pour into a 10" by 15" baking tin, lined with greaseproof paper (vegetable parchment). Smooth to a level top and leave it to set. Cut into fingers (literally a finger thick).
