Recipe by bshemyshua

Another recipe I found on which is resourceful, easy, rich and makes a huge amount. Hope you enjoy this. This is the description of this on their web site. In the old days, when biscuits were sold loose, grocers sold mixed, broken biscuits at a lower price. This recipe was a good way of using them up and as a cake which requires no cooking, it can be easily made by the kids as well as experienced cooks. (Cooking time is set up time)
