How to make No-Bake Chocolate Cold Cake: Step by step instructions:
Instructions for making chocolate cake sauce
In a mixing bowl preferably glass or steel mix sugar, cocoa powder and eggs with wisk. It will take 5-10 minutes to completely dissolve the sugar and cocoa.
it is definitely more easy to dissolve sugar and cocoa powder with eggs then mixing sugar with butter. I experiment with different sequences and I found the mixing granular sugar with butter will take ages to mix.
Let it settle and mix completely. Add coffee and mix again till get a thick consistency in sugar and egg mixture. You can add dry nuts like walnut, pistachio, cashew if you like for making it more crunchy.
Now on medium flame cook this mixture on a double boiler for 7 minutes to get thickened paste.
How to make double boiler at home?
Well! Its simple take a pan a little larger then your mixing bowl. Pour in some water approximately 1-2 inch. Place your mixing bowl on it .
Turn on the flame and let it simmer, when steam from it will trap under your mixing pan and start cooking the mixture slowly and gradually. Till a thick paste form. Now add butter and mix again.
why we use double boiler to cook chocolate sauce?
we use double boiler to cook chocolate sauce to prevent chocolate from burning as direct heat can burn the chocolate or make the sauce lumpy and fats will get separate in turn ruined its taste.
After cooking 5-10 minutes turn off the flame. Let it cool for 2 minutes. Now add crushed Marie biscuits. Mix throughly so that all biscuits get coated with chocolate sauce. Pour this mixture into cupcakes mould or plastic bag.
we can use traditional cake mould to make cake shape and then cut into triangle shape pieces. If we are using steel cake mould don’t forget to grease it with the butter so that after cooling it can come out easily.
Let it cool down in the freezer for 4 hours.After 4 hours remove and cut it into pieces. To remove no bake chocolate cake slices from plastic bag first cut it into slices then remove plastic coating by cutting it in the middle.
serving suggestion of chocolate cold cake:
We can servev as it is but many people like it with chocolate icecream or whipping cream can be for garnishing.
