This lazy cake (some call it biscuits au chocolat or gateau froid) without doubt, will be a staple in your fridge. When talking about winning combos, we shouldn’t undermine the marriage power of chocolate and banana!

A classic lazy cake is already a hit, I always wondered how it will turn out if i stir in some bananas, and here is the day i dared trying it. Trust me it’s heaven in your mouth.

All you need is:

  • 75g butter
  • 200g dark chocolate chopped
  • 1/2 cup good quality cocoa powder
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 2 bananas ripe (mashed with a fork)
  • 40 pieces biscuit marie

Heat butter and chopped chocolate until melted, you can do it in a heat prood bowl in the microwave or simply in a pot on a medium heat. Stir in cocoa powder and sugar, whisk until sugar is melted. Take off the heat then add bananas and finally crush each biscuit in 4 and toss in the chocolate banana sauce.

Fold gently so you don’t crush the biscuits in tiny pieces until all of them are well coated. Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap to put the biscuits and chocolate, this way it will have a rectangular shape, easy to cut. Depending on how thick you want your cake to be, use the convenient mold size, mine is 11¨. With the back of a spoon (or your hand) shape the mixture in the loaf pan.

Refrigerate at least for 3 hours, take it out, unwrap, cut in slices using a sharp knife and savor!

Some people like to sprinkle over icing sugar before serving, it’s not a bad idea actually, it makes it look more festive and appetizing. You can serve with roasted walnut as well, it goes well with chocolate and banana.

It’s a new recipe to add in my creations, i am sure i will revisit more often, it’s a real pleasure to the palate. When you try it, i would love to have your opinion, don’t hesitate to write for me.

no bake lazy cake: 4 ingredients in 4 minutes


lazy cake

Lazy cake, gateau froid or biscuits au chocolat… Opt for a name, meanwhile i will be done preparing it! Seriously 4 minutes!

  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 200g nutella
  • 50g butter
  • 40 pieces Marie biscuit

In a heatproof bowl place the dark chocolate (cut in small pieces) with nutella and butter and heat it for 1.5 minute in the microwave. Take it out and mix it well until all ingredients melt and incorporate.

Crush each biscuit in 4 and toss in the chocolate sauce. Marie biscuit is similar to tea biscuits, you find it in many brands like Mcvitie’s, Tiffany, Britannia… and for Lebanese you know our famous ghandour 555!! it reminds me of my childhood and the famous “biscuit w raha”.

Fold gently so you don’t crush the biscuits in tiny pieces until all of them are well coated. Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap to put the biscuits and chocolate, this way it will have a rectangular shape, easy to cut. Depending on how thick you want your cake to be, use the convenient mold size, mine is 11¨. With the back of a spoon (or your hand) shape the mixture in the loaf pan.
