Let's make the most delicious no-bake chocolate and biscuit cake. This is my family's favorite cake recipe and we love to make it on special occasions such as birthdays, mother's or father's day. Why is it so popular at home? The taste of the creamy chocolate as it melts in your mouth is out of this world. Plus, it's incredibly easy to make and you only need pantry staple ingredients. Before you try it I should warn you that it's impossible to cut just one piece, it's seriously addictive!

For this comfort food recipe you only need three basic ingredients that you probably have in your house already: chocolate, milk and biscuits. It requires no oven are little time to make. It works great as a dessert or birthday cake but you can also dunk it in your milk for breakfast.

I'm going to show you two versions of the recipe: the strawberry one which is creamier and more suitable for celebrations and the walnut one which is healthier -has less fat- and better for every day breakfast. Both are equally delicious.

The Best Chocolate & Biscuit Cake Recipe

Ingredients:

Walnut version
300 gr dark chocolate (milk chocolate or white chocolate work too)
300 ml milk
20-30 plain rectangular biscuits
walnuts to decorate

Strawberry version If you want to make the chocolate creamier, use these ingredients instead:
200 gr of cream cheese
200 ml of cream
340 gr of dark chocolate (milk chocolate or white chocolate work too)
20-30 plain rectangular biscuits
berries to decorate

Directions:
Cook the chocolate and the milk until it becomes a thick mixture in a pot and stir constantly so that it won't stick to the bottom of the pot. Let it cool.

Line the mold with tin foil. Pour a layer of chocolate on the bottom and then put a layer of biscuits. You may need to cut some of them to fit the shape of the mold. The best is to use a loaf cake mold. Biscuits are supposed to be moistened before inserting/cutting them. You can use either milk or sweet wine for that.

Alternate layers of biscuits and chocolate until you run out of the latter. Finishing with a layer of biscuits. Put in the fridge for a couple of hours.

Turn it upside down on a tray and remove the mold carefully.

Decorate as you wish before serving. You can use nuts, berries, colorful iced biscuits or even macarons!

  16. I love this! We usually break the biscuits into pieces and also use cognac and sweetened condensed milk for the cream!

    Sounds super easy. I reckon it could also be made a bit like tiramisu and soften the biscuits in a little coffee. Delicious. #KCACOLS
