Marie Biscuit Gateaux

Ramadan started and so is the late night prayers, fasting from dawn to dusk, reciting Holy Quran, attending religious majlis and then to break the fast at the time of sunset. Alhamdulillah, we are blessed with this holy month. May Allah accepts our prayers and bestow His gracefulness and forgiveness upon us.

Yesterday, I decided to make my brother's favorite dessert for Iftar. It is a simple and tasty pudding. Here I share with you, my Iftar special dessert recipe. You are most welcome to nibble with me. :)


150 g Marie Biscuits
1 cup Milk
2 tbsp Custard powder
2 tbsp Cocoa
¼ cup Sugar
100 gm Unsalted Butter

Little milk to dip the biscuits
Crushed Biscuits or Chopped Nuts


Blend well the cocoa and custard powder in little milk. Make sure there are no lumps. Boil the remaining milk in a saucepan adding sugar. Add the blended cocoa mixture and cook till thickens, stirring all the time. Remove from fire and keep aside to cool, stirring occasionally.

Separately in a bowl, beat the butter till creamy. Now add little by little, the cooled custard to the butter and beat well. When the cream has cooled a bit, it is time to start the layering.

Dip the biscuits one at a time in the extra milk. Be careful not to soak the biscuits too much as they will just fall apart.  Arrange neatly in the bottom of the greased casserole dish. Spread the chocolate cream for about ¼ inch thickness. Then sprinkle crushed biscuits or chopped nuts. Then start the second layer with dipped biscuits. Repeat the same till the biscuits and cream are used.

Sprinkle the crushed biscuits on the top and freeze it for an hour. Serve chilled.

I served the Gateaux with Vanilla Icecream.

Variations - Instead of cocoa powder, can use instant coffee for the coffee flavor.

This delicious gateaux is smooth, crunchy and cold dessert.

Happy Eating!
