biscuit cake recipe

i had got a few recipe requests to add a no bake cake made with glucose biscuits. so staying true to the recipe request, i have used parle g glucose biscuits. instead of glucose biscuits you can also use marie biscuits or sweet crackers or digestive biscuits. two more desserts on blog where biscuits are used are:

  1. eggless cheesecake recipe
  2. eggless mango cheesecake recipe

no bake biscuit cake tastes similar to chocolate cake and is a layered cake. this is a recipe which i had seen in my childhood on doordarshan and i still remember an old aunty demonstrating the recipe in one of the cookery shows. i had never forgotten this recipe. i used to make a few changes to this recipe and make this no bake cake.

when the recipe requests came, i did remember and yes it was a very long time i had not made this no bake cake. so thought of sharing the recipe on new year’s eve.

for the chocolate, i have used bournville raisin and nut chocolate, but you can also use cadbury’s dairy milk chocolate. please do not add cadbury’s silk chocolate. you can also use couverture or compound chocolate.

  1. Wow Dassana…thank u so much…will b looking forward for your air fryer recipes…it will b helpful to many like me

    • welcome shubha. i have still not started. but yes i do remember and will eventually add the recipes.

  2. Hi dassana…this is so yummy…I will have to prepare once again…literally finger licking…thank u…
    Today I had prepared ur methi muthiya in airfryer….I did not put soda…I baked it 180 for 25 min…preheated for five min…it twas excellent…first time I prepared muthiyas..
    I had read that while preparing cake in fryer can follow the same steps of otg but should reduce temp to 25 to 30.. So I baked cake in steel vessel lined in parchment paper..at 160.n it took same time as of otg…I felt texture of cake was good…n even economical wen compared to my gas oven cos preheating requires around 20 min…wer as here three to five min is sufficient… Wat I learnt is should use bit wide vessel otherwise while raising the cake touches to coil….mine is Philips…at the same time vessel should not cover fully the pan…some space is required for air …
    I had also prepared bindi…sliced thinly put all the masalas n baked at 160 for 30 min…
    Carrot halwa I prepared using two carrots…got some idea in you tube n slightly altered…it was good but ur carrot halwa is ultimate…this is just my extension of previous comment …

    • thank you shubha for the feedback on biscuit cake and carrot halwa. today i created some space in my kitchen and removed the air fryer and kept it on the counter top. so i will plan accordingly and then add the recipes.

      also thanks for sharing the tips on air frying. i have seen some recipes on baking in air fryer, but never checked them. they just came on my fb wall and i did not see the details. even koftas turn out good. you can try them. i tried onion pakoras, but i did not like the texture. it was not crispy as the fried ones. veggie fries can be easily made. i did try with karela and it was good. nicely golden and crispy.

  3. Hi dassana…i prepared this using good day n white cooking chocolate… It was good…I stored in freezer…outside it became bit liquidy..then in air fryer I prrpared mirchi pakoda…it was good ..I also prepared carrot halwa using milk powder….can u pl guide me can v use milk to prepare halwa in airfryer..I mean so much liquid is it OK??? I did in steel vessel…i had also baked cake in 160 degrees… It came out good…….pl post oats granola bars…

    • thanks shubha for sharing the recipe feedbacks. i have never made halwa in air fryer i have no idea. i have just used air frying to make dishes which are always deep fried like samosa, pakoda etc. so i am unable to help you. i know about baking cakes, but i was scared with the idea of baking in an air fryer. thanks for letting me know. sure give me some time. i have taken a note of your request.

  4. Thankyou so much for this recipe.I made it.It was delicious.

    • welcome beena and thanks for sharing 🙂

  5. I just love your website. your recipes are just too perfect. Your pictures always motivate me to try new recipes. Also most ingredients that you use are readily available at home. three cheers.
    This recipe is just a wonderful concept.
    Regarding this cake, my question is what can I use as a substitute for coffee? We NEVER have coffee.

    • thanks sunita. nice to know. you can just skip coffee and dip the biscuits in some milk instead of water. alternatively you can use ½ tablespoon drinking chocolate or cocoa powder in the warm water and mix.

  6. Hello Dassana,

    Me and my husband are ardent followers of your blog. We love and swear by your recipes.
    Recently, I have been experiencing an issue on your webpage/ blog. Is there any way to get the list of posted recipes sorted in order of posting dates – like the last 15 recipes. I keep missing new recipes and hate that.

    Sorry to bother. May you keep sharing your wonderful collection with us. Happy 2018!!

    Regards

    • Thanks Sayanti for your kind words and positive feedback. As such we don’t maintain a list for sorting recipes in order. However you can follow us on facebook or twitter. We share the newly posted as well as old recipes there. Happy New year.

  7. Its mouth watering dassana….bit busy now…will try after two weeks….as usual m having few doubts;-)…can I place first biscuit in the pan n later sprinkle liquid…I feel it may break if I do like u….secondly my white cooking chocolate still is there can I use that here instead of cadbury????

    • thanks shubha. its better to dip each biscuit and then layer. just dip and remove. do not allow the biscuit to soak. when you dip and remove, the biscuit soaks enough. if you pour the coffee solution, the biscuit layer can be become too pasty or mushy. yes you can use white chocolate.
