Lolly Cake


  • 100g butter, melted
  • 250g (1 packet) malt biscuits, crushed
  • 1/2 tin (200g) sweetened condensed milk
  • 180g (1 packet) fruit puff sweets, roughly chopped

Mix together butter, biscuits, condensed milk and fruit puffs. Shape into a log and roll in coconut. Refrigerate until firm and then slice into rounds.

Bin Inn stores are scattered around NZ and  generally have bulk bins of fruit puff sweets.

  6. I live in Melbourne and their are certain shops that sell NZ products like Eskimos!….expensive bt I buy the Eskimos and save them to make Lolly cakes for special occassions!…

  7. My Mum use to make similar called Canadian Roll.Has chopped marshmallows,finely chopped walnuts,red& green glace cherries,sultanas,dates.Moisten with a little brandy or sherry.11/2 tins room temp condensed milk,1 pkt finely crushed malt biscuits.Can be a bit dry but roll and squeeze altogether then roll in coconut and wrap tightly in greaseproof paper put in fridge to harden.Freezes well.Great as Christmas coffee treat.

  8. If you have a really sweet tooth, try replacing the lollies with chopped up pieces of either peppermint chocolate or caramello chocolate.

  9. Sponge cakes are thought to be the first of the non-yeast-based cakes and rely primarily on trapped air in a protein matrix (generally of beaten eggs) to provide leavening, sometimes with a bit of baking powder or other chemical leaven added as insurance. Such cakes include the Italian/Jewish pan di Spagna and the French Génoise. Highly decorated sponge cakes with lavish toppings are sometimes called gateau; the French word for cake.*
