About This Biscuit Cake

I have many wonderful dessert recipes on the site, from Chocolate Cake to homemade ice cream and lots of sweet goodies in between.

This is a recipe which I had seen in my childhood in one of the cookery shows on Doordarshan channel and I still remember it. I had never forgotten this one. I used to make a few changes and make this no bake cookie cake on occasions.

After several requests from readers for a no-bake cake made with biscuits (known as cookies in the US and other regions), I am sharing this foolproof recipe that’s a hit every time.

Speaking of, here are two more recipes for desserts that use biscuits and crackers on the blog:

  1. Cheesecake
  2. Mango cheesecake

Likewise, this chocolate biscuit cake is easy to prepare with nearly any sweet biscuit you like. I use glucose biscuits, but feel free to make no-bake cookie cake with Marie biscuits, your favorite digestive biscuit, or sweet crackers.

The taste is similar to a traditional chocolate cake, but has a slightly firmer and more tender texture. Cookies are briefly soaked in coffee, then layered with a delicious chocolate sauce.

This sauce is prepared made with cadbury bournville raisin and nut chocolate for even more deep flavor. You can also use cadbury’s dairy milk chocolate, couveture, or compound chocolate, if you prefer. (However, do not use cadbury’s silk chocolate. It does not work well for a smooth chocolate sauce.)

Keep reading for the simple steps to prepare the best no bake biscuit cake!

10. Next add 1 tablespoon of sugar. You can add more or less depending on personal taste and how sweet your chocolate is.

The cadbury chocolate I use is already quite sweet, but bittersweet or dark chocolate bars might need a bit more sugar.

17. The heat of the cocoa solution will melt the chocolate. Mix to a smooth glossy consistency. At this point, you can add some chopped nuts or dry fruits if you want.

Also, check the taste and add more sugar if required. But do keep in mind the sweetness of the biscuits you will be using. Set the pan aside so that it cools slightly to warm.

18. Take each parle glucose biscuit and dip in the coffee solution. If using glucose or marie biscuits or digestive biscuits, then just dip for a second and quickly remove. Do not keep in for any longer or the cookies will become too soggy.

19. You just need to coat the parle g biscuits with the coffee syrup.
