  4. Nicked this one from Rearparty

    Chocolate truffle cake

    Meringue - either make one - really thin (cooks in 15 minutes) or just buy a box of some and crush them up

    14 oz of good dark chocolate
    2tbsps of golden syrup
    2 tbsps of rum (or good brandy)
    500ml thick double cream

    Melt alkyhole and syrup together with the chocolate in a pan

    Whip the crap out of the cream until it looks like a thick custard

    Pour chocolate sauce into cream - whip like a demon until it all looks the same colour

    Crush the meringues and put in a cake base

    Pour chocolate mix on top - stick it in the fridge to set then eat
  5. Chocolate digestive cake (no cooking required, not suitable for women up t'duff)

    8oz plain chocolate (or 50:50 plain:milk if you want it less rich)
    8oz unsalted butter
    8oz digestive biscuits
    2oz white caster sugar
    2 eggs

    Melt chocolate. Melt butter. Beat eggs and sugar together. Break biscuits into quarters(ish).

    Mix chocolate, butter and egg/sugar together. When thoroughly mixed, add chunks of biscuits.

    Pour into a bread tin. Put in fridge for 4 hours. Eat.

    Alternatively you can also use maltesers instead of digestive biscuits. The white maltesers give a slightly marbled effect.
  6. Stole this onre from RP too

    Syrup Sponge Pudding:

    4oz self raising flour
    4oz caster sugar
    4oz butter/stork
    2 eggs

    6-8 tablespoons golden syrup

    Grease a 1litre pudding bowl and put 3-4 tablespoons of golden syrup in the bottom. If you have an electric whisk/mixer use that to mix all the other ingredients together. If not, first cream butter and sugar then add eggs then flour. Pour into bowl on top of syrup. Use greaseproof paper/tin foil to cover the top of the bowl, with a pleat/fold in it to allow for the steam. Steam for 1.5 hours or whenever you are ready to serve. When ready to serve heat 4 tablespoons syrup with 1 tablespoon water and turn out pudding, pouring syrup over the top. Custard is good with this.
  7. Stole this one too :oops:

    Cadbury Fudge Cookies

    2 cadbury fingers of fudge chopped up.
    225g soft butter
    100g caster sugar
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    275g SR flour, sifted

    mix them all together then roll into golf ball size, er balls.
    heat the oven to about 180 C
    line a couple of baking trays with grease proof paper
    place in the trays about 4" apart as they melt down into biccy shape
    cook for 15-20 minutes

    when you take them out of the oven LEAVE them for a few minutes to cool as they're impossible to move without them crumbling when hot.

    leave to go cold on a rack, if you can keep your greedy little mittens off them!

  9. Penis Stew

    1 pound of penis, ram's or bull's
    3 tbls. oil
    1 large chopped onion
    2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
    1 tsp coriander seeds, crushed
    1 tsp salt
    freshly ground black pepper

    Scald the penis, then drain and clean
    Place the penis in a saucepan, cover with cold water, and bring to a boil.
    Remove any scum, and then simmer for 10 minutes.
    Drain and slice.
    Heat the oil in a large skillet.
    Add the onion, garlic, and coriander and fry until the onion is golden.
    Add the penis slices and fry on both sides for a few minutes.
    Stir in the remaining ingredients with a good grinding of pepper, add enough water to cover, and bring to a boil.
    Lower the heat, cover, and simmer for about 2 hours, or until tender.
    Add a little water from time to time if necessary to prevent burning.

    Apparently innards, including penis, once played a major role in Jewish cooking.
