Rice Krispie Squares and Chocolate Victoria Sponge Recipe

This weekend we did some baking and made a chocolate cake and some rice krispie squares and I wanted to post the recipes for you all in case any of you want to make them too. Everything we made was so simple and quick to do, and delicious which is the most important thing.

Rice Krispie Squares

200g of butter
10 normal sized marshmallows
3 or 4 cups of rice krispies

1. Melt 200g of butter in a pan. After, add the marshmallows and wait until it is all combined and the marshmallows have melted
2. Add the rice krispies and stir and combine everything in the pan
3. Transfer to a dish and leave to set in the fridge for about half an hour
4. When set, cut into squares

Chocolate Victoria Sponge Cake

225g of butter
225g caster sugar
4 eggs
175g self raising flour
50g cocoa powder

1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees
2. Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually add the eggs one at a time
3. Fold in flour and add cocoa powder
4. Divide mixture between two cake tins and bake in the oven for 25 minutes
5. Leave to cool then add filling and topping

We chose to add buttercream for the filling, basic recipes can be found online but we just used butter, icing sugar, coca powder and melted chocolate. We then added just melted chocolate to the top of the cake. 

Baking Tip! 

When your cakes are cooling, add a slice of bread to each one. This keeps all of the moisture in the cake so it doesnt go hard or stale while it is cooling. It makes the bread go rock hard and keeps the cake nice and soft! This really did work, it was one the best cakes we had made and it was so so moist.

I never knew that tip about the bread! Thanks for sharing, I'll definitely try that out next time I bake a cake.
