This fridge cake by Jamie Oliver is a wonderful way to prepare ahead for dessert. Assembled and refrigerated until firmed up, all that is left to do is slice the fridge cake. This cake contains cookies, meringues, nuts, and dried fruit. It is a delicious treat.

Notes: Break up the cookies and nuts into very small pieces to make your dessert easier to slice. Line your container with extra cling film; it will make it easier to remove the cake from the mold.

serves 16 and takes 15 mins to prepare


  • 200 g digestive biscuits finely chopped
  • 110 g whole pecans finely chopped
  • 110 g pistachio nuts peeled and chopped
  • 10 glace cherries you can replace with 20 dried sweetened cranberries as I did
  • 2 ready-made meringue nests smashed up
  • 150 g unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup replace with honey, corn syrup or maple syrup
  • 200 g good-quality dark chocolate 70% cocoa solids


  1. 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 microwave until melted.
  2. Mix the contents of both bowls together and line a 12 x 8 inch container that will act as a mould, with clingfilm.Leave 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. You can top with cocoa powder or chocolate shavings.
  3. This cake can be kept in an airtight container for a few days and actually improves in flavour after a few days.
  4. If you're allergic to nuts then simply leave them out of the recipe.
