I saw Mary Berry make a Tunis Cake on TV the other day and it brought back a memory of childhood Christmases. My dad loved the McVities’ Tunis cakes and we had one every year as a special treat. As I remember he always complained that the chocolate got thinner over the years but he enjoyed it none-the-less. More recently we have bought one from Sainsbury’s but it’s not the same. Anyway, when I saw Mary’s recipe I had to have a go. I’d suggest baking at a lower temp than the recipe says as mine’s a bit overcooked but it tastes just fine. By the way, I had to wrest the marzipan fruits from Michael – mum bought him a box for Christmas and he was very reluctant to give me the last three!
