Choc Ripple Cake




This is a firm family favourite. Here's the way my mum always made it.

Ingredients
2 packets Choc Ripple Biscuits
600ml cream
2 Tbsp icing sugar
1 Flake or grated chocolate (optional)

Method
Whip the cream, then add the icing sugar.

In a dish place a layer of biscuits followed by a layer of cream. Repeat this until everything is used up.

Leave in the fridge over night to set.

Before serving crumble the flake or sprinkle the grated chocolate over that. Serve.

To make it like a log I layered the biscuits and cream in an ice cream conatainer.
The next day I scooped spoonfuls out onto a tray and shaped it into a log. I put cream over it and sprinkled it with chocolate.

Some people soak the biscuits in liquer first, but I don't drink alcohol and I don't use it in my cooking, nor did my mum.

I've also sliced banana over the top before serving because I didn't have enough cream for the top layer and it went slightly brownish, so I used the banana to cover it up and everyone loved it. So if you'd like it to be slightly different, banana's or strawberries taste good with it.
