I'm sure that we are not the only people who use IKEA as a kind of free drop in play centre but it's just so handy. Freddy especially likes playing in the little mock up children's bedrooms that they use to showcase the furniture and toys.
We usually just point him in the direction of those areas and then retreat to a distance far enough that it might not be immediately obvious he is ours but close enough that we can step in if things get ugly.
But I digress.
The point of the post is to say that we love IKEA food and the Daim cake is a favourite not least because it is egg free and dairy free (if you use dairy free butter and chocolate).
So as requested by Sandra on Facebook and as made by Rachel here is how to make the delicious Daim cake from IKEA.....
- 2 tbsp flour
- 2 tsp cocoa
- 2 tbsp golden syrup
- 2 tbsp butter
- 4 tbsp sugar
- Handful peeled and chopped almonds
- 100 g or 1 cup milk chocolate
Cook on low heat until the mixture thickens.
Spread the mixture on a greaseproof paper and leave to cool.
Sprinkle on the almonds.
Melt the chocolate and spread on top of the crunchy almonds.
This is Rachel's attempt at it and I think it looks fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
