Biscuit Cake

I got this recipe for the first time from a friend who used to make it in a pressure cooker.

I tried making this cake myself with some variations and in microwave oven,and it turned out really well!My friend used to describe this cake as an emergency treat for all possible situations like guests arriving suddenly or kids winning a school competition.

This cake is made from biscuits or cookies.But if you think logically,you will realize that all biscuits are made of flour,sugar and some raising agent.So here we just add milk,some more baking powder and cook it.The result is a soft and delicious cake.

Preparation time:10 minutes
Cooking time:5 to 8 minutes(in  microwave oven)/20 minutes (in preheated convection)
Serves:2 to 4


  1. 20 to 25 glucose biscuits (try parleG )
  2. 5 tsp cocoa powder
  3. 2 cups castor sugar
  4. 2 tbsp melted butter
  5. 3 cups milk or as required
  6. 2 tsp baking powder
  7. Icing sugar for dusting
  8. Butter and all purpose flour for dusting bowl or cake tin
  1. Crush the biscuits in a bowl with hands or in a mixer till they are powdered.
  2. Add castor sugar,butter,milk,cocoa powder and baking powder to the biscuits.Mix well till you get a dropping semi solid consistency.
  3. Take a microwave safe bowl or a 6 "cake tin.Grease it well with butter and a little all purpose flour.Pour the mix in bowl.The bowl should be big enough so that cake batter doesnt exceed 3/4th of  bowl or cake tin.
  4. Microwave for 5 to 8 minutes or put in preheated oven(at 180 degree celsius) for 20 minutes.
  5. The cake is ready if on poking a toothpick in cake,tooth pick comes out clean.Remove the cake from oven.
  6. Let the cake cool on cooling rack.Dont try to invert the bowl.Otherwise the cake will break completely.I have gone through the trauma of breaking cake when I made it for the first time(in hurry of removing from bowl).
  7. Once the bowl is inverted and cake is out,dust it with icing sugar.Slice it and serve.Enjoy!!!
