Sorry Monty. Tempting as your butty is, I just can't resist Jamies chocolate dessert. There's only one thing better than chocolate, and that's chocolate with alcohol.

I beg to differ! Chocolate with alcohol after something with chicken, preferably chicken breast fried in garlic butter, with new potatoes and maybe some side salad. A half decent bottle of wine to accompany as well. Chocolate with alcohol (rum, for my preference)... Quite good. Chocolate with alcohol as the first course of dessert... Chuffing marvellous!

Morty, for your Kaff, a rceipe my ol Mum used to make in the East End when times were good. I have been making it since I was old enough to let my little brother lick the spoon (grr grr).

GOOD FOR VALENTINES DAY TOO!
Try this yummy choclolate cake and add RUM! YUM yum yum yum yum yum yum! And for some reason Men really like it. :o

NO BAKE CHOCOLATE CAKE:

450g preferred type of chocolate* (broken into pieces)
110g unsalted butter (sliced - melts quicker)
450g madiera cake
25g digestive biscuits
50g raisons soaked over night in 4 tablespoons of orange juice OR RUM
75g Maltesers(chopped)
A slack handful of chopped glace cherries (or nuts if peferred).
2 tablesoons of golden syrup
vegetable oil, for greasing
Decorations (your choice) 8)

* Carob chocolate also works.

With vegetable oil grease a 1.4 litre loaf tin and line with baking paper or greaseproof, whatever you have to hand.

Melt chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water add a small drop of rum if preferred.
Meanwhile, using your fingers, crumble the cake and chop the biscuits into slivers.
Keep back some melted chocolate.
Place cake crumbs in a large bowl with melted chocolate, syrup and other ingredients.
Mix until combined but not all squished up.

Pour into the loaf tin and pour remainder of melted chocolate over the top.

Place in fridge and leave overnight.

Turn out onto a plate or serve already sliced and wait for the hoards to descend! You rarely have to keep this more than two days! 8)

Try making it instead of the usual Birthday cake.
Kid's love it because they think they are drinking alcohol (remember you can replace the rum with orange juice and, what the little ones don't know won't hurt them). Teenagers love it!

OK, some of this stuff y'all are posting is making my arteries harden just by looking at them. For as many years as I've been chatting with UK friends, this is the first time I've ever heard of a bacon buttie... :shock: ...and as visions of ambulances and emergency rooms danced through my head, my Second Thoughts said, "You forget, the Texas State Fair has some of the unhealthiest food in the world."

I have never eaten these items, but each year they try to outdo themselves on fried things that can cause massive coronaries.

Last year, the winner was....Fried Butter:

Deep Fried Butter – 100% pure butter is whipped till light and fluffy, then specially sweetened with a choice of several flavors. The tantalizing mixture is surrounded by a special dough and quick fried. Served on a stick.

No sticks in the picture, but I think the powdered sugar more than makes up for it:

In 2008, the winner was Chicken Fried Bacon with Cream Gravy:
