Digestive Cakes

March 28, 2013

What If?

I was once told that great minds ask questions and when it comes to cooking I ask myself questions all the time.  For example… Can black bananas be used as an alternative for mushy peas?  Can carrots become chips? And… What if there was a cake made out of digestives rather than cornflakes?  I asked myself this very question before I made my digestive beauties.  The turned out to be really nice.  This is definitely something I could develop, but I would recommend this to those of you who want an extra treat using left over digestive biscuits from cheesecake making.
