Ritika Gupta

This quick and easy cake can be made in minutes using any sweet biscuits. It is especially good for using up any broken up biscuits and crumbs. Serves 8-10


  • 200-250 gm. malt or digestive or any other type of plain, sweet biscuits, including chocolate biscuits. Use mixed broken biscuits or crumbs if you have enough

  • 2 tsp. cocoa powder, if using plain biscuits (optional)

  • 1 cup milk

  • 5 gm. or 1 level tsp. ENO* or other fruits salt like Andrews

  • A microwave suitable baking dish.

  • A little oil or buttr to grease the baking tray

  • *Note: Each 5 gm. of ENO powder contains: 2.32 gm. Sodium bicarbonate, 0.50 gm. Sodium carbonate and 2.18 gm. citric acid anhydrous. Sodium content: 0.85 gm. It is often used as a raising agent in Indian cooking, especially Gujarati cooking.


  1. Place biscuits in a blender or chopper and make crumbs.

  2. Add cocoa powder and enough milk to the blender and mix to make a batter of dropping consistency.

  3. Add ENO and mix with a quick burst of blender.

  4. Pour in a greased, microwave proof dish and cook on full power for 5 (4+1) minutes. Check by inserting a knife to ensure that it is cooked and not too moist inside. The knife should come out clean.

  5. Cool and serve.


  • You can make two cakes and sandwich them with a cream filling (cream + fine sugar + a essence of choice, beaten together until stiff).

  • 1 tbsp. full of other dry fruits like chopped, dry apricots, dates, plums can also be added to the batter, in place of raisins.

  • You can flavour it with vanilla essence/concentrate or other flavouring of choice.

  • You can add broken up bits of a chocolate bar or different nuts of choice to the batter, before pouring it in the baking dish. You can ice it with a butter icing
