Biscuit Cake with step by step pics. Biscuit cake is one of the easiest and yummy cake one can make. This no bake biscuit cake has chocolate in it and tastes too good.

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

This no-bake chocolate 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 chocolate biscuit cake.

When the recipe requests came, I did remember and yes it was a very long time I had not made this no-bake biscuit cake. So thought of sharing the biscuit cake 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.

10. Next add 1 tablespoon sugar. Sugar can be added less or more. Since glucose biscuits are already sweet, I have not added much sugar. The bournville chocolate I used was also sweet. If using bittersweet or bitter chocolate, then add more sugar.

  1. Wow Dassana…thank u so much…will b looking forward for your air fryer recipes…it will b helpful to many like me5 stars

  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 …5 stars

    1. 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.
