Ingredients
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 1 level tsp baking powder
  • 235g butter, softened
  • 175g soft brown sugar
  • 3 large free-range eggs
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 100g pack Asda Milk Chocolate Chunks or White Chocolate Chunks
  • 175g icing sugar
  • 1 level tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
  • 85g pack Silverspoon Caramel Fudge Chunks
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 6. Line a shallow cake tin or small roasting tin, about 20cm x 24cm, with baking paper and set aside.

  • Sift the flour and baking powder together into a large bowl. Add 175g butter, the brown sugar, eggs and 2 tbsp milk. Beat until evenly mixed.

  • Stir in the milk or white chocolate chunks. Put into the lined tin and level the top.

  • Bake for 40 minutes or until the top springs back when lightly pressed. Leave to cool on a wire rack before turning it out of the tin.

  • Meanwhile, sift the icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl. Put the rest of the butter in a small pan with the golden syrup and 1 tbsp milk and heat gently just until melted, without allowing it to boil. Pour on to the icing sugar and mix to make a smooth icing.

  • Pour the icing on to the cake and sprinkle the fudge chunks on top. Leave to set before slicing into squares.
