My daughter, Rydhi always says
"Mumma.......Biccatte" whenever she needs a biscuit and "Mumma
Choca" whenever she needs chocolate. She is a big fan of the two. From our
kids we could see our own childhood rite? Because kidz show a mixture of what
both of us have done in those days.......which made me to think of making
something very simple and tasty. I got the recipe from Cookery guide, YWCA and I made my own
250 grams of Marie Biscuits (can be increased
or decreased during layering)
3 to 5 tablespoons of Milk
1 Egg Yolk
3/4 Cup of Cocoa Powder
1/2 Cup of Butter
1 1/2 Cups of icing sugar
Sift the cocoa powder. In a bowl beat the egg
yolk, set aside.
Take a 6 inch square tin and put plastic wrap or cling which extends to the
Heat butter in a sauce pan on low heat. When it
melts, add the sifted cocoa, sugar and combine well.
Add the beaten egg yolk and
the 3 tablespoons of milk , mix well and take the mixture off from fire.
If the batter has a very thick consistency, add
some more milk and stir well.
Arrange the biscuits in the square tin and pour
the batter above that immediately. Repeat the same for the next layer till your
Cool it completely and freeze it for at least 4
hours and cut the cake into desired shapes .
Note: Since the batter would thicken
immediately, Pour into the biscuits without delay.
Eventhough I made this, aiming Rydhi, we all
have taken this as a dessert after the meal. Since I made the batter thick enough, each cake squares
were tasted rich chocolaty.
If you do not want such a rich amount of
chocolate flavor, reduce the thickness by adding 5 tablespoons of milk.
Thankful to God for introducing me about this good new dish :-).
