    Inspired by BennyBoy65 who brought the idea back to the surface, after previous threads had been popular... but in time had disappeared without being stickied. So I thought it would be a good idea to expand on the idea, by updating the front page with links to each person's recipe and the Wiki page.
    Another big thanks to Roger_Kirk for setting up the Wiki and adding a lot of the recipies.

    In time this page will be updated with all the links to the individual recipies, but please realise this takes time :p: But will be done ASAP. But feel free to keep posting

    Involving the TSR Wiki

    Not to undermine the TSR wiki and it's food section, by posting your recipies here, you or I (if you don't want to) can then copy and paste them into the Wiki's section of the Recipe Book.
    Other TSR users can then add to or suggest ways in which to make the recipe better by using the Wiki's simple editing tool. A link to the each Wiki page will be given on this page.

    No official format to the book. Just make sure all the recipies include all the info required.

    Cadbury American Fudge Cake

    This recipe is also known as ‘Death by Chocolate’, if it is topped with chocolate ice cream and lashings of whipped cream.
    FOR THE CAKE
    125 g (4 oz) butter
    225 g (8 oz) dark soft brown sugar
    2 eggs
    142 ml (¼ pint) soured cream
    175 g (6 oz) plain flour
    5 ml (1 tsp) baking powder
    2.5 ml (½ tsp) bicarbonate of soda
    50 g (2 oz) Cadbury Bournville cocoa

    FOR THE FILLING
    40 ml (2 Tbs) Cadbury Bournville cocoa
    125 g (4 oz) butter
    150 g (5 oz) icing sugar, sieved
    Vanilla essence

    FOR THE FROSTING
    200 g bar of Cadbury Bournville chocolate
    40 ml (2 Tbs) Cadbury Bournville cocoa
    142 ml (¼ pint) double cream

    Two 20 cm (8-inch), shallow cake tins, greased and base-lined

    For the cake, cream together the butter and sugar until the mixture is light in colour anti texture. Gradually beat in the eggs, and then the soured cream (the mixture looks curdled at this stage). Sieve together the dry ingredients and fold them into the mixture. Divide the mixture equally between the tins. Bake at Gas Mark 5/190ºC:/375ºF for 30 – 35 minutes, until cooked. Turn out on to a wire tray to cool.

    Make the filling by mixing the cocoa with 40 ml (2 Tbs) of boiling water to a smooth paste, allow to cool. Beat together the butter, sieved icing sugar and essence, until light and fluffy. Beat in the cocoa. Slice the cake in half and then sandwich the halves together with the filling.

    For the frosting, melt the chocolate carefully. Make the cocoa into a paste with water as before and mix with the chocolate. Slowly whisk the cream into the chocolate until smooth and thickened. Spread the frosting evenly over the cake with a palette knife.

    Serve in slices, with whipped cream or ice-cream. If possible warm each slice in a microwave or oven, if you have made the cake in advance; it can also be served cold but is definitely more interesting hot, with the contrast of ice cream.
