200 g digestive biscuits
110 g whole pecans, roughly chopped
110 g pistachio nuts, peeled
10 glace cherries
2 ready-made meringue nests, smashed up
150 g unsalted butter
1 tablespoon golden syrup
200 g good-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
This chocolate cake is wicked! And even better, you don't need to do any baking.
Break the biscuits into small pieces directly into a large bowl. Add the pecans, pistachio nuts, cherries and smashed meringue. Put the rest of the ingredients into a second, heatproof bowl and either put this over a pan of simmering water, or into a microwave until melted.
Mix the contents of both bowls together and get yourself a container that will act as a mould. To help with turning the cake out, line the container with clingfilm, leaving plenty of extra clingfilm at the edges to fold over the top. Now spoon the mixture into the container. Put into the fridge to firm up, then turn out , removing the clingfilm, and cut into chunky slices.
This cake can be kept in an airtight container for a few days and actually improves in flavour after a few days.
If you're allergic to nuts then simply leave them out of the recipe.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
