No-Bake Traybakes

No-Bake Polish Cake

It’s another no-bake chocolatey biscuit traybake this week – No-Bake Polish Cake. Nope, I have no idea why this is called Polish Cake either. Perhaps it’s because you can ‘polish’ off a whole tray in one sitting? Bad puns aside, it’s another straightforward recipe. (One of these days, I’m going to have to make something more complicated! But I guess that’s the joy of traybakes, they are generally easy to make.)

This No-Bake Polish Cake has a soft, chocolatey biscuit base and is simply topped with a layer of chocolate. I decided to mix some white chocolate in with the milk chocolate in my topping this time. It’s all Rock n Roll here!

And this was another big success in the Traybakes’ household. Thumbs up all round and a ‘you can make that one again’ from Mr Traybakes. High praise indeed!


4oz/110g/1 stick butter

1 egg

1 tbsp golden syrup (or honey or maple syrup)

8oz/225g/2 cups crushed Digestives or Graham Crackers

2 tbsp sugar

melted chocolate to cover


1.  Melt the butter, cocoa powder, syrup and sugar in a medium saucepan over a gentle heat.

3. Remove from the heat and stir in the crushed biscuits.

4. Press firmly into an 8″ square traybake tin and set in the fridge for 30-60 minutes.

5. Cover with melted chocolate. Cut into squares when set. Enjoy!
