Submitted by Sandra Blainey. This cake won the Diverse Abilities Plus recipe competition. Not surprising as it tastes incredible – chocolatey, crunchy and chewy – what more could you want?

No cook chocolate cake

300g plain chocolate

75g butter

2 tablespoons syrup

405g tin of sweetened condensed milk

175g dried fruit (apricots, etc)

125g sultanas

200g rich tea biscuits

Break chocolate into pieces and place in a saucepan. Add butter, syrup and condensed milk.

Heat gently until the chocolate has melted, stir well.

Cut the fruit into small pieces, add this together with the sultanas to the chocolate mix, and stir thoroughly.

Crush biscuits in a bag until you have lots of chunky pieces. Stir into the chocolate mix.

Tip the mixture into a loose-bottomed cake tin and press down.

Chill for 4 hours. Remove from tin and slice.
