Royal Wedding: Chocolate Biscuit Cake recipe - Page 3

post #31 of 81
warchild......you are correct, a graham cracker is nothing like a rich tea. Any biscuit could be used for this cake, it depends on your personal preference.
For the past 50 years my family have used digestive biscuits, and thats how we like it.
I guess you could compare it to cake recipes...people tweak them all the time and new recipes are created. :^)

PTBUGZY1 what do you think about the animal crackers idea?

Karen421.....I think animal crackers would be a good substitute for the 'rich tea' biscuits, and would work great. :^)

If you can find them Social Tea Bisquits will work also. i think they are made by Nabisco. I used to use them in another version of this same type of cake.

Check World Market. They have the Digestive Biscuits online, as well as several other McVities products. Also the Maria biscuits.

If you are lucky you may have a World Market close by.

Yes of course, you're absolutely right. Everyone who wants to try the recipe should use what ever biscuit/cookie that suits their fancy. I was to quick to pounce on the graham crackers simply because I dislike them so much. I do apologize for that.

mthiberge.......the real mccoy as in made from the royals?, someone in this thread did post the royal recipe? also the chef has been on the TV this past week. I believe this thread has 2 recipes, the royal and also my 'family version'. Both alittle different but pretty much the same result, a fantastic tasting quick easy show stopper, it is delish.

Try it it's wonderful

Just so we're clear, is this what you are referring to? http://www.amazon.com/McVities-Classic-Biscuits-7-05-Ounce-Package/dp/B001EPPC80/ref=reg_hu-rd_add_1_dp

You know now that I read the recipe more closely, I have more questions:

~ Can any shortbread cookie be substituted for the tea biscuits?

~ Do you have to have a cake ring or can you use a regular 6 x 2 cake pan?




When I was in college in the US, I found digestive biscuits at the international grocery stores, and in the Caribbean grocers as well. A lot of countries outside of the UK enjoy UK products so you might find it in some of the grocery stores that carry international products. Hope that helps!

I agree social tea biscuits are similar to British tea biscuits in taste and texture!
