Carrot and Gogi Berry Loaf Cake

I’ve been wanting to make a carrot cake for a little while now and I wanted to give it a bit of a twist, something to make it stand out from the crowd. Well I have done just that! Adding Gogi Berries to it has given it a lift and a flash of colour, I love it!

I’ve used Gogi berries before and was looking for other recipes I could adapt so that I could make even more use of this yummy fruit.

Easy Rocky Road Recipe

I’m going to open with a bold statement today…..this Rocky Road is the best one I’ve tasted! Oh yes our house went into chocolate meltdown when we tried these the morning after I made them.

There are plenty of ways to make this and we gave a couple of them a try before hitting the jackpot with this. So in good myrealfairy tradition, this Easy Rocky Road recipe is the one to share with you.

What you will need is:

300g Milk chocolate

75g Butter

2 tablespoons Golden Syrup

1 cup Marshmallows

1 cup Maltesers

What you need to do is:

EASY ROCKY ROAD RECIPE

Break up the chocolate into pieces so that it melts easier.

EASY ROCKY ROAD RECIPE

Place the butter and chocolate into a saucepan and put on a low heat. This recipe is all about being gentle with the heating, don’t rush it.

Add the 2 tablespoons of golden syrup and stir in while still on the low heat.

As soon as this has all melted together, remove from the heat. Crush the maltesers so that they hold some chunks to them and are not totally bashed to crumbs. Now eat a couple of the maltesers that haven’t been crushed – originally there were many more than shown in this picture, they are too tempting not to eat a few while making this. Go on treat yourself to the cook’s perks:)

Fold in the marshmallows and maltesers to the chocolate mixture. Put into a foil tin or baking tray which has sides to it so that you can get that Rocky Road look to it by having it around 1 inch (2.5cm) high.

Leave in the fridge overnight. In the morning turn out onto a chopping board and cut into cubes. Sprinkle with some icing sugar if you fancy. Product test by having at least a square to yourself with a cuppa before popping into bags if giving as gifts. I suggest leaving in the fridge until needed to keep firm and crunchy.
