Biscuit Pudding: A simple recipe that uses biscuits to make a flavourful pudding to fulfill all those sweet cravings, this dessert is simply divine.

Here?s the recipe.

Prep time – under 15 mins
Cook time -Nil
Yields – a 7 inch square pan

Ingredients needed

Tea biscuits / Marie biscuits- 30 biscuits or as required
Unsalted Butter- 100 gms (at room temperature)
Icing sugar- 1 cup
Cocoa powder- 3 tbsp
Milk – approx 1 1/2 tbsp-2 tbsp
Vanilla extract- 1/2 tsp

Coffee/ Espresso powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Water- 1 cup


Prepare coffee decoction in 1 cup of boiling water. Filter it and leave it to cool.

Sift the cocoa powder and keep it aside.

Line a 7 inch square cake tin with cling film leaving a little extra on one side to fold over the top. Alternatively you can layer the whole thing in a square pan or glass dish without the cling film, if you plan to serve it directly from the tin. But with the cling film lining, it is easier to take the whole biscuit cake out from the pan and slice it as preferred.


In a bowl, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. You can use a wooden spatula or an electric hand mixer.

Add cocoa powder and continue beating until well mixed.

Add vanilla essence and mix well. Add milk little at a time and mix well. The consistency of the mixture should neither be stiff nor too watery. It should be easily spreadable, so adjust milk accordingly.

Now dip the biscuit one at a time in coffee decoction and arrange it in the pan. It doesn’t matter, if the biscuits overlap.

With a spatula, spread the butter + sugar +cocoa powder mixture over the biscuits evenly filling all the gaps and corners. Repeat with another layer of biscuits dipped in coffee decoction and top it with another layer of cream.

Continue layering biscuits and cream alternatively until all the cream is over and the cream layer is the top most layer.

Decorate it with chopped nuts or silver ball or sprinkles, cover it that extra cling film, press it gently and keep it in the refrigerator to set.

When ready, lift the pudding out of the pan, unfold it and slice it into small pieces and serve immediately.

Note – The pudding will melt if kept outside for a long time. So keep it in the refrigerator and take it out only when required.

If you want it soft, keep it in the refrigerator to set. If you prefer it a little hard, keep it in the freezer compartment of the refrigerator. Both tasted great.

Eggless No-bake Biscuit Brownies: This is the best dessert for vegetarians who do not need to compromise on their sweet cravings and can happily indulge with this eggless, no-bake biscuit brownie cake. The recipe is so simple that you will enjoy making this dish.

Here?s the recipe.


20-25 Marie biscuits
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup roasted nut of choice (I used hazelnuts)
2 tsp sugar
1/2 of a 400gm tin condensed milk (I used low fat Milkmaid)

1. Break the biscuits into fours and powder coarsely. I left small bits of biscuits in this mixture to give the brownies some extra texture.

3. Add the cocoa powder to this and mix well.

4. Add the sugar to this mixture and mix again. If you prefer mildly sweet brownies, you can omit this but I found the sweetness level perfect with 2 tsp sugar.

5. Dry-roast any nut of choice and let it cool. I had some roasted hazelnuts handy so used that. Roughly 1/4 cup should do.

6. Chop it up coarsely and add to the mixture. Mix well.

7. Add half a tin of condensed milk to this mixture. Feel free to lick up the remaining condensed milk sticking to the tin!

8. Mix well with a sturdy spoon. I would advice against using a whisk at this stage because the mixture will be very very thick and refuse to cooperate. Show it who’s boss! Mix well until all the powdery bits are combined with the wet ingredients.

9. Line a plate, pie dish, or baking tray with butter paper (or just great with some butter) and transfer the mixture to it. Press firmly with wet fingertips until the mixture is uniformly spread.

The colours all look different because of the difference in lighting. Bear with me. Whatever colour the brownies are, they will be delicious, I promise.

10. Refrigerate atleast for 4 hours or overnight if possible. This picture was taken after 2 hours of refrigeration because I was impatient. If you are like me, you will get more fudgy brownies that won’t hold its shape when you cut it.

If you refrigerate longer, then they can be cut into perfect squares and taste delicious. This was taken the day after I made them.

Biscuit Custard Pudding: This is a unique recipe made with custard powder and salted biscuits that are assembled together to make a lip-smacking sweet snack.

Here?s the recipe.


Vanilla flavoured custard powder – 5 tbsp
Milk – 3 cups
Sugar – as required [I used 4 tsp]
50-50 or Krack Jack Biscuit – 1 packet [I used Krack Jack]
Coffee decotion – 2 tbsp [optional but recommended]
Chocolate / Choc Semiya / Choc Sauce – as required to cover the top layer

NOTE : If you are not familiar with making filter coffee decotion this is for you to make coffee decotion without filter :Take 1/4 cup hot water and add 1.5 tsp of instant coffee powder (Bru, Nescafe sunrise works best) and mix well.Use this as coffee decotion it to dip ur biscuits.It works almost like filter decotion.


1.In a small bowl add the custard powder to little milk and dissolve till the custard powder combines with milk into a smooth liquid without any lumps. Keep aside.[This step should be done with out keeping in stove] Keeping in low flame, heat the remaining milk , add sugar.

2.Now add the custard milk. Stir slowly, well and continuosly.The mixture gets thickened very fast so be very careful. Stir for 2-3 mins switch off and cool down. The consistency is little thicker, but still should be in flowing consistency as shown below. Now dip each biscuit for a second and arrange it in a square plate/tin and layer the base of the plate with krack jack biscuits dipped in coffee decotion for first layer.

3.Above the first layer spread a generous spoon of prepared custard then layer another set of biscuits dipped in coffee decotion.Repeat this with another layer then alternatively stack up with biscuits and custard. Build 3-4 layers repeating the same process.Then grate chocolate/ add chocolate sauce or readymade choc semiya(which is what I’ve done) over the top layer biscuits, covering up the whole cake.

4.Refrigerate it for few hours (about 2-3 hrs). Remove from the fridge about 5-10 minutes before serving.Cut into desired squares/pieces and serve immediately.

The crunch in the biscuits with the creamy custard…Yumm! Sure to be kids favourite too.My Notes :

The amount of custard in each layer purely depends on your choice. I liked mine just covered, if you like custard then add it more generously covering the biscuit layer completely.
Build about 3-4 layers, not beyond that, as it will not hold shape making it hard to cut into desired square pieces.
Tastes best when served immediately after taking it from the fridge.
