I gathered there was no actual hedgehog in it! When I make a cake and call it a 'hedgehog cake' it's cos it looks like a hedgehog. So, can you see why I'm asking where the hedgehog bit comes into this recipe?

The Tin - use a loaf tin c = Cup Hedgehog is just a name, not the animal!! It's a chocolate biscuit type sweet.

How big is the tin, don't understand the measurement for the nuts -3/4c - and where does the hedgehog bit come into it? Looks tasty though!
