How to make Biscuit Pudding (biscuit cake recipe)
Recipe Source- mykitchenantics

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.

preparing cream mixture for biscuit cake

Now dip the biscuit one at a time in coffee decoction and arrange it in the pan as shown in the picture below. 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 (see picture below). 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. (I got 3 layers)

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.

  12. Hi, I found this recipe quite yum.. I have a friend who is not too fond of sweets but her husband is.. So to mellow down the sugar element, I mixed some toasted oats and desicated coconut into the choc mixture, and then with the layering, I added thin layers of (a mix of) roasted & crushed cashew & pistachios nuts. the sweetness was more balanced.. But thanks for the recipe Padhu.. loved it! :)

  17. One of my friend made it yesterday as per your recipe and truly it tasted yummy. But my only concern is, how can you call it a pudding? Isnt it more like a tart or pie, cause puddings are supposed to be semi solids.

    1. Where is the icing sugar used??

    2. Read the first line under METHOD "In a bowl, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. You can use a wooden spatula or an electric hand mixer." As I have already mentioned as icing sugar in the ingredients list, I have just mentioned as sugar (icing sugar) in the method.

  22. Awesome recipe. Simple but the frosting was just right. I just added a tablespoon of dark rum omitting the same of milk. Dunked the biscuits in milk, used chocolate ganache, nuts and chocolate shavings to top it up. This my signature dessert. Thanks for posting and bless you
