Birdies Perch Malteser Slice

I recently made a recipe called Birdies Perch Malteser slice for my belly dance group BD4U's event. I made it before; almost a year ago (didn't know it had been so long!). I decided to post the recipe on here.

The Malteser slice is a Malteser/cake slice with Maltesers, golden syrup, digestive biscuits and milk chocolate in and white chocolate on the top. It's a recipe from Sam Stern's Student Cookbook and he got it from a teashop he goes to in Yorkshire called Birdies Perch.

Update 26/5/14- I realised that I shouldn't have copied the whole recipe because of copyright laws, so I'm going to change what I wrote. I came across this article about sharing recipes:

Update 21/3/16: This is a type of cake that's known as a "fridge cake" or tray bake in the UK and I've found similar recipes online which I thought I'd link to here (since I can't post the recipe in full and it's harder to read in the picture in Sam's book):

Here is the recipe:

Birdies Perch Malteser Slice


100g/3 1/2oz margarine/butter
100g/3 1/2oz golden syrup
150g/5oz milk chocolate
225g/8oz digestive biscuits
175g/6oz  bag Maltesers


2x 150g/5oz bars white chocolate
Grating of milk chocolate

I found a link to the recipe page in the book (Page 259). It's small but you can still read it:

Note: You bash the Maltesers bag 3 times but I bashed them a bit extra to crumble them up more.

There you go! Hope you like it, if you make it. :)

Hove Park in summer

I thought I would post some pictures I've taken throughout the seasons and decided to start with Hove Park, where I like to go for walks. Here are a couple of photos I've taken during the summer:
