No-bake desserts are perfect for making ahead of time as you can keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to serve it to your guests. This no-bake Biscuit Cake is no different. It’s easy to make, and you don’t need an oven! It’s a simple dessert made by layering chocolate cookies with a homemade pudding and then topping it with a chocolate-nut mixture. After refrigeration, the cake is ready to be cut and served. The result? Crunchy bits of cookies mixed with creamy pudding—a balance of textures in each bite!  You can also customize the recipe, so make sure to check out our tips below!


Use any of your favorite cookies, for this specific recipe we recommend using chocolate cookies, but you can also use digestive biscuits (like graham crackers) for a less chocolatey taste. If you want a more intense chocolate taste, then you can use Oreos.

Short on time? Instead of making a custard, you can also use chocolate or vanilla pudding, or banana for a twist on a banana pudding.

Instead of hazelnuts, you can use pistachios, walnuts, pecans, almonds, or peanuts. You can also top it with rainbow sprinkles, M&Ms, dried fruits, or chocolate chips.

How to Store Biscuit Cake

Store the biscuit cake in the fridge (in an airtight container) for up to 4 days. This cake is perfect for making ahead of time. Simply assemble the cake in the cake tin, and place it in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.

What To Serve With Biscuit Cake

Serve the biscuit cake on its own, or add a few pieces of fresh fruit.
