• 5 tbsp – vanilla flavoured custard powder
• 3 cups – Milk
• 4 tsp – Sugar

  1. Method for preparing custard: In a small bowl, add the custard powder to milk and mix well. Keep aside.
  2. On low flame, heat the custard milk. Stir slowly and continuously for 2 – 3 mins. Switch off the stove and cool it down.
  3. It will be thick, but of a dropping consistency.
  4. Method for layering the cake:

  6. Above the first layer, spread a generous spoon of custard, then layer another set of biscuits dipped in coffee decoction.
  7. Repeat until you build 3-4 layers. Then grate chocolate over the top layer of biscuits, covering the whole cake.
  8. Refrigerate for a few hours (about 4 hours).
  9. Remove from the fridge about 5 – 10 minutes before serving.
  10. Cut and serve immediately.
  11. For coffee decoction: Take 1/4 cup of hot water, add 1.5 tsp of instant coffee powder and mix well.
