Bournvita fudge cake

Bournvita fudge cake

Bournvita rock — this is something that happens to me quite often. I love drinking a cup of hot Bournvita in winter. In summer, however, I prefer cold milk with Nesquik. By the time winter rolls around again, the Bournvita is a lump of hard brown rock.

Usually, I throw it away. This year, I decided to try and use it.

I poured boiling water over the lump and left it to soften. A couple of days later, it had melted into a thick syrupy liquid. I used it to make fudge cake.

Fudgy and delicious

Ingredients

(Serves 5 persons)

All-purpose flour 1 cup
Butter 180 g
Eggs 2
Baking powder 2 tsps
Bournvita syrup 1 1/2 cups

Method

Using a stand mixer, cream the butter. I used Amul salted butter, so there is no need to add salt. Add the eggs one by one. Sift the flour and baking powder and add a spoonful at a time. Add the Bournvita syrup.

Grease a 9” round baking dish and pour in the batter. Bake in a 160 degree C preheated oven for 60 minutes.

Cool and slice into squares. Makes 13 pieces.
