Ever considered having the good old marie biscuits for desserts? No, right? Well, this chocolate biscuit pudding will change your entire perspective of marie biscuit or rather any normal biscuit and will certainly become one of your all time favorite desserts.
It has been so long since I posted recipes regularly and also very long since I posted any dessert recipe. So, this chocolate biscuit pudding has been lying around in my archives for a very long time now. I have been wanting to share the recipe ever since I clicked a few photos of it.
I made this chocolate biscuit pudding earlier last year for a special occasion and had included with a vegetarian thali meal. If you have been following me on Instagram, you would have known about it. Anyways, I didn’t find the time back then to click any photos of it. But, later during last year, I again made this recipe just for the sake of photos.
Yeah, I did make this recipe again and I would even make it a hundred times just for the fact that it comes together so easily in no time. You see, this chocolate biscuit pudding is not demanding at all. It neither requires any baking skills nor does it require any cooking. You just have to put everything together and layer, chill and devour it.
So, the next time you think about making a cake for birthdays or for any special occasions but would rather not do it just because it is time consuming and also quite difficult (okay, that is obviously in comparison and not literally, lol), just do this pudding. I mean, no second thoughts at all, because it is so damn easy. And why would you ever want to give anything that is so easy to prepare yet very tasty, any second thoughts?
Okay, I know that I keep saying it is very easy, so let us talk about the actual ingredients involved in making this chocolate biscuit pudding. So, first of all, the main ingredient is of course biscuit. Marie biscuit works very fine but I guess any other non-cream biscuits will also do the trick. But, I would not suggest digestive biscuits just for its texture.
Apart from this, choco chips, chocolate whipped cream, caramel, nuts and everything that you would want in your pudding cake can go inside it. You just need to dunk your biscuits in some instant coffee mixture first. Then, arrange it in a dish and then top it with a layer of whipped cream. Just keep alternating this until either your baking dish becomes full or you run out of any other ingredients. Lol!
I even spread some caramel and choco chips in between layers. But, it is totally upto your preference. You can add a few other ingredients too or even keep it very simple by limiting it to the use of chocolate whipped cream only. That is what I love about this chocolate biscuit pudding! You can alter the recipe to your taste buds or your creative level. Awesome, right?
Oh yeah, this “awesome” just made me sound like DEAN (if you guys can really relate to what I meant)! So, yeah, back to our pudding, you can even call this a cake. I mean, for any lockdown parties, this would definitely make a beautiful and tasty cake. What’s not there in it. Layers of biscuit and cream, it would never fall short of a cake.
Another thing that I wanted to share is that, I have used chocolate whipped cream here which you can replace with a chocolate custard or even chocolate ganache. If you want to make chocolate custard, then boil some milk, add cocoa powder and stir until well combined and then add some corn flour to thicken it. For every one cup of milk, add 1-1.5 tbsp of corn flour depending on the consistency of the custard you want. Chill it and then use as directed in the recipe!
So, enjoy having this delicious chocolate biscuit pudding with your loved ones on any special occasions. Celebrate each day of your life with some good food. Stay safe; stay healthy! Happy cooking and eating!
