Celebrating the Royal Wedding?

With all our various connections to the 'Mother Countries' (England, Scotland & Ireland), here in the Bay of Fundy region, there is certainly lots of interest in the impending nuptials of Prince William and Kate.

For example, during a trip to Saint John, New Brunswick today I got this 'royal treat' at the Homeport Historic Inn. It's a sampling of said Prince's favourite biscuit cake in honour of their wedding.

Here's the authentic recipe if you'd like to whip up the groom's choice dessert in time for the wedding tomorrow:

Will's Chocolate Biscuit Cake Recipe
11 oz packet McVitie's Rich Tea biscuit
6 oz Golden Syrup
14 oz Cadburys Bourneville dark chocolate
3 oz butter
5 oz raisins soaked in 4 Tbsp Caribbean rum

Put biscuits in back & smash til they are a mix of crumbs and postage stamp-size pieces. Stir in melted chocolate, butter & raisins. Scrape into lined cake pan. Refriderate until set. Cut into squares. Cuts best if you let it sit out of the fridge for an hour. No baking required!

According to this article in The Telegraph, London
, 'twill apparently be served at the wedding as an alternative to traditional wedding cake!

If you live in either of the Fundy provinces and need Bourneville chocolate or McVitie's imported from the UK, try Pete's Frootique at the Saint John, NB, market or at the Bedford Mall in Halifax, NS. Enjoy!
