Barbara Adams’s Fudge Cake *
*A real favourite for the sweet-toothed Kiwi (N.Z.)
4 ounces of butter
4 ounces of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of cocoa
2 tablespoons of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 ounces walnuts
8 ounces of crushed sweet biscuits (in N.Z. “Biscuits” are plan cookies – say vanilla wafers)
Bring sugar, butter, cocoa, milk and essence to boil. Do not boil. Add crushed biscuits and walnuts. Add anything else you like, e.g. chopped apricots or ginger. Put in tin and wait till it sets. No cooking. Ice when cold.
