No Bake, Easy Coffee Biscuit Cake
This Is All What You’ll Need
You’re in business if you have ten minutes, tea biscuits, whipped cream, sweet condensed milk, some Nescafé, and cocoa powder.
Each ingredient contributes to the delectable flavors of this decadent dessert. The coffee balances the sweetness, the cream softens the biscuits, and the biscuits have a flaky texture that distinguishes this dessert!
Nescafe or instant coffee powder: You need nescafe dissolved in hot water to dip the biscuits in.
Heavy whipping cream: Heavy whipping cream adds a creamy texture to the cake.
Sweetened condensed milk: Condensed milk is used to sweeten the cream mixture. You can also substitute powdered sugar.
Vanilla extract: Just add a tiny splash for a hint of flavor in the cream.
Tea biscuits: I use Ulker tea biscuits. You can find it at most middle eastern or international markets and on Amazon.
Cocoa Powder: Cocoa powder adds the final decorative touch to your cake.
Ulker Biscuits Are my Favorite
Why Use Nescafe?
If you want your cake to be bursting with flavor, use instant coffee or Nescafe to achieve this aromatic and deep yet refreshing coffee flavor. Instant coffee granules preserve the strong flavor of coffee beans while ensuring that the coffee powder is thick and ready to use immediately.
The condensed milk, whipped cream, and tea biscuits that go into making the Nescafe no-bake cake make it more on the sweet side; however, your instant coffee or Nescafe is really bitter. This one-of-a-kind combination of bitter and sweet flavors will result in a divine fusion of contrasting flavors.
A Great Last Minute Recipe
