Non-Bake Flourless Biscuit Cake


Made this yummy choco biscuit cake over the weekend.  To me, it can be referred to as a non-bake cake and also a biscuit as part of the ingredients is biscuits.  For some people, chocolate can be a delicious obession and this easy-to-make biscuit cake is just lovely to enjoy!










This can be served as a dessert, kept chilled or even as a snack ....... crunchy, nutty, not too sweet and full of yummy chocolate!

  • 6 oz bittersweet couverture
  • 6 oz butter/margarine
  • 6 oz digestive buscuits  -  broken up into pieces
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp golden syrup

  2. Lightly chop up the apricots and raisins into smaller pieces.  Keep aside.
  3. Break up the chocolate into a bowl and place over a pan of simmering water  OR use a double boiler.  Stir.
  4. Add in butter and syrup and keep stirring till the chocolate and butter have melted.  Remove from heat and let cool for a while.
  5. Mix the broken up pieces of biscuits, raisins, apricots and almond flakes in a mixing bowl.
  6. Pour in the cooled chocolate mixture and mix till well combined.
  7. Transfer the mixture into the lightly greased cake tin, press lightly and level the top.
  8. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.

  9. I would love to have a slice for my dessert now. It is nice to see a no-bake cake. This would be great for very warm days when turning on the oven is not a good idea.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.
