A few weeks ago I made Cadbury Space Invaders from a 1980s Cadbury novelty cook book. This recipe for Cadbury Scottish Fingers is from the same book. I really love millionaires shortbread (check out my millionaires muffins) and these have all the components with a little twist.

The shortbread in theses Cadbury Scottish fingers has a lovely orange flavour from the zest and extra texture from chopped nuts and dried fruit. And instead of a layer of chocolate on top, there’s a piece of
Cadbury Flake on each finger!
Preheat the oven to 160ºc.
Cream the butter and sugar together. Sift the flours into the mix with the orange zest, nuts and fruit mixing well. Press evenly into a greased baking tin (about 28x18cm). prick with a fork all over and bake for 25-30 minutes. Leave in the tin.
Prepare the topping by dissolving the other ingredients except the flack in a pan. When the sugar grains have dissolves, bring to the boil and cook for 5 minutes, stirring continuously. Pour over the shortbread, spreading evenly all over. While still warm cut into 16 pieces and top with pieces of Cadbury flake. Allow to cook completely before eating.
