Four-ingredient biscuit pudding recipe
A treat that takes less than half an hour to prepare – your taste buds will thank you!
Until quite recently, I always thought of chocolate chip biscuits (or Hide & Seek biscuits, as they're known in India) as just a good snack option. A thing to have between meals. A thing to keep the stomach warm. That was until yesterday, when my mother transformed them into a deliciously creamy dessert. I’m starting to like the lockdown. ..
It turns out, chocolate chip biscuits work great with whipped cream. And you can make it taste even better when you add layers of cream, with the biscuits sandwiched in between. So that’s precisely what we did.
A very simple dessert dish, prepared with just five ingredients. Intrigued by its simplicity? Even I was staggered by the minimal effort needed to make this tasty pudding. I believe you would also be equally amazed to give this a try and realising how un-challenging it really is. And trust me, the skills required to make this is equal to filling a water bottle. Motivated enough? Give it a try!
- 10 chocolate chip biscuits
- 1 cup whipped cream
- Chocolate sauce
- 1 tsp coffee powder
First layer of the pudding
- Whip the cream and put it in a container.
- Put the coffee powder in another, smaller container. Add some water.
- Dip the biscuit in the coffee water mixture.
- Place the dipped biscuit in another bowl.
- Add a layer of whipped cream on top of the biscuit.
- Dip another biscuit and place it above the cream layer.
Final layer of the pudding
- Now add 3 tsp chocolate sauce into the whipped cream container.
- Mix it well and use it as the final layer (to make the dessert more chocolatey).
- Drizzle chocolate sauce on top of the creamed layer for taste and decor.
- Refrigerate for a little over an hour, then serve.
Dip the biscuit for only about 2-3 seconds, not more. Don't let it melt in the water-coffee mixture!
