This is an excellent cake for all the coffee lovers. No bake, easy to make, quick and delicious. My husband’s favourite. His grandmother used to make this cake for the family, but she passed away 20 years ago and didn’t left the recipe. I was trying to recreate the recipe for several times until I hit the jackpot. It goes great with a cold glass of milk, it is so good and creamy, it may not be the most representative or photogenic, but the taste is all that really matters. Try it, you will be thrilled.

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 500 ml strong coffee
  • 240 gr butter biscuits
  • 100 gr sugar

Soak another batch of biscuits in the coffee and arrange them over the cream. Spread the rest of the cream over and finish with another layer of soaked biscuits.

For glaze, chop chocolate (I have used 50 gr.) and pour hot cream over. Wait for 30 sec  and stirr. Pour over cake and spread gently with spatula.
