Kiksekage~ Chocolate biscuit cake Secret Recipe Club Challenge 13th October 2014


This is my assignment with the Secret Recipe Club.The aim of the club is that you are allocated a blog from which you have to select a recipe and try it and blog about it. 
I have been part of SRC for almost three years now and I really enjoying looking through my secret blog assignment  and choosing a recipe to cook from. This month I am going to do the challenge twice as I am doing an extra one for group B to help out. The blog I am cooking from today is called Sid's Sea Palm Cooking. Looking through Sid's blog I noticed she is a member of the boat club and shares her creations with her friends. How lovely is that.  

Being a vegetarian I always head over to the vegetarian friendly recipes and in Sids blog I found she had 34 recipes that were vegetarian. However my sweet tooth took the better of me and  fell in love with the Aebleskivers -danish pancake balls and the  Kiksekage Chocolate Biscuit cake . I tried both but the photos of the chocolate cake won the toss so I am sharing it here:

The cake was easy to make and really tasted delicious. The only changes I made were that I left out the alcohol since I don't drink.

    4. I wanted to add, that Rich Tea biscuits are my preferred biscuit for this, when I can find them, on this side of the pond. And I also put a picture of me on there today, cause you're not the only one who called me a guy. LOL.

  12. Hello Nayna,

    I like the idea of the Secret Recipe Club - what a great way to find delicious new recipes like this! Thanks for sharing. When I need to bake a cake, I'll head back over here.

    I think I'd have to exercise four hours a day if I had a food blog :-)

    In peace and passion,
    Laurie

  20. Is there more to the recipe Nayna? There's no mention of the biscuits. are they just layered up with the ganache? Do you you spread it on or brush it? Looks good anyway.

    1. You can use any biscuit such as rich tea, morning coffee, ginger biscuit , malted milk. There is no strict rule. Ideally if biscuits are rectangular or square its easier to layer them in square or rectangular tin and you dont have to do a jigsaw of trying to fit round biscuits in square tin.
