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!

Ingredients
  • 6 oz bittersweet couverture
  • 6 oz butter/margarine
  • 6 oz digestive buscuits  -  broken up into pieces
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp golden syrup
  • 1.1/2  oz raisins
  • 1.1/2  oz dried apricot
  • 3 oz flaked almonds -  slightly roasted
Method
  1. Lightly grease an 8 inch round springform cake tin.  Keep aside.
  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. Keep refrigerated.
Variation

Use other biscuits like crackers or petit beurre biscuits.

  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.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it! Wool Roll Bread ~  毛线球面包 (adapted from 'here' with adjustments) Ingredients 300 gm high protein flour or bread flour 30 gm sugar 1 tsp seasalt 1 egg  (55 gm or 65 gm) 70 or 80 ml milk 25 gm melted butter Egg wash (1 whole egg + 1.1/2 tsp water to dilute) Meat floss or whatever you wish to use as filling 80 ml warm mil

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle. Marble Butter Cake ~   大理石牛油蛋糕      Ingredients (A) 230 gm butter 150 gm vanilla/caster sugar 200 gm self-raising flour 4 egg yolks   (I used 68 gm eggs with shell) 60 ml milk 1 tsp vanilla essence 8 gm chocolate powder a pinch of salt (B) 4 egg whites 30 gm vanilla/caster sugar Method 1.     Line the base of an 8 inch square pan with parchment paper, grease and dust the sides of the pan with flour.  Set aside. 2.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
