Tablet Biscuit Traybake Recipe
In the Gilmour family when we talk about favourite family bakes this is what we always mention - DE-liciois Tablet Biscuit.
It’s really hard to explain what it actually is but let me try – It’s a simple traybake, the bottom is a thick digestive base that had a fudgey tablet like consistency which is covered with a thick layer of milk chocolate.
It’s a real cosy afternoon at home with a cup of tea comfort food treat, which is easy to make. And once you give this a bash it’s sure to become a firm family favourite of yours too.
225g Unsalted Butter 225g Caster Sugar 2 Tbsp Golden Syrup 400g Tin of Condensed Milk 500g Digestive Biscuits, Crushed to a fine crumb 300g Milk Chocolate
Step 1. Line a 13×9 inch baking tray with greaseproof paper and set to one side.
Step 2.Crush your digestives into a fine crumb texture in advance of starting the recipe, I usually just do this with a rolling pin and a sandwich bag.
Step 3.Into a large heavy pot combine the butter, sugar, syrup and condensed milk. Set this over a medium heat and bring the mixture to a light boil for 3-4 minutes. It’s really important that you continually stir the mixture to avoid it burning. Do not take your eyes off the mixture because it can burn really quickly.
Step 4.You will know the mixture is ready when little brown flakes start to appear in the mixture. When this happens immediately remove from the heat, add the crushed digestives and combine well together.
Step 5.Tip the mix into the pre-prepared baking tin and set in the fridge for at least a couple of hours to set, although I like to leave it overnight.
Step 6.When the base is set, melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over a simmering pan of water. Once melted spread an even layer of chocolate over the base, and put back in the fridge for a few hours to set before cutting and enjoying.
