The best biscuit and mocha cake to taste
The biscuit and mocha cake is a delicious and easy dessert to make, since it is not necessary to use the oven to make it. In addition, the consistency and combination of flavors is a delight to the palate.
That is why below we will explain how this dessert should be made and offer some recommendations to make it perfect.
Cookie and mocha cake ingredients
300 grams of cookies (This is the equivalent of 1 and a half packages).
2 large eggs.
2 large egg yolks.
250 grams of butter (This is the equivalent of 1 cup and a quarter).
140 grams of sugar (This is the equivalent of 3/4 cup).
10 grams of soluble coffee.
200 Milliliters of milk (This is the equivalent of 1 cup).
50 milliliters of water (This is the equivalent of 1/4 cup).
Steps for making the biscuit and mocha cake
Note: We will divide the process into several phases.
Place a pot with the 50 milliliters of water on the stove over low heat and pour the 10 grams of coffee into it. Shake a little to integrate it.
Add the 150 grams of sugar and increase the heat to medium. Stir while integrating and let it cook until we notice that all the coffee beans have dissolved.
Once you notice that everything is dissolved, we will notice that a kind of foam is formed, so we will continue stirring until it starts to boil.
Remove from heat and reserve.
Making the mocha
In a bowl we will add the egg yolks and begin to beat with an electric mixer.
Once you notice that they have tripled in volume and have a foamy consistency, it will be time to add the coffee made in the previous phase. Do it little by little while beating and pouring in a thin thread. Take into account that the liquid should not be very hot.
In a bowl, add the butter at room temperature and begin to beat with the electric mixer until creamy.
Pour the buttercream into the egg and coffee mixture and beat with a paddle to integrate it.
Begin to beat with the electric mixer until you obtain a homogeneous cream, without lumps and a little dense.
Cover the cream and reserve for at least 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
Assembling the biscuit and mocha cake
Add a little coffee in a glass of milk and stir very well to integrate it.
Prepare a mold by placing transparent baking paper.
Dip the cookies one by one in the coffee milk and place a layer of cookies on the base of the mold. The idea is to cover the entire surface.
Add a layer of the cream made in the previous phase, so that it covers the entire surface of the cookies. You can place the layer of the thickness you want.
Repeat step 3, filling the entire surface with cream with the cookies.
Continue adding one more layer of the mocha cream and alternate the layers of cookies and cream until all the ingredients are finished.
The last layer should always be cream. Finally, we flatten the surface of the cream.
Take the mold to the refrigerator and let it cool for at least 4 hours so that the flavors compact and the cake hardens.
Preparation of the cream or milk cream
In a separate bowl, pour the heavy cream and beat with the electric mixer until thickened.
When the cream has a creamy consistency, reserve in the refrigerator.
Decorate the biscuit and mocha cake
Take the cake out of the refrigerator and unmold, very carefully.
Place the whipped cream in a pastry bag and decorate the surface of the cake with the design of your choice.
Sprinkle a little cinnamon, cocoa powder, or chocolate drizzle on the top as a finishing touch if you like.
Serve a portion and enjoy.
Recommendations and tips so that the biscuit and mocha cake is perfect
Take into account that the butter should be at a temperature between 25 to 30º C to make it easier to beat. A good way to do this is to heat it up before blending it.
Ideally, you shouldn't add too thick a layer of cream, so you can layer in more layers of cream and alternate it with the cookies.
Do not soak the cookies too much, as they only need to be moistened a little to integrate them into the cake. The idea is that the cookies take on a bit of tone.
If you like, you can add a little liquor, be it rum, whiskey, wine or vodka to the cream mixture so that the dessert acquires a better flavor. Ideally, it should be a hazelnut or coffee liqueur.
The cake will be much better if you leave it in the refrigerator overnight or for 24 hours.
Remember that the eggs must be very large to be ideal for this recipe. In case they are small, use one more than indicated among the ingredients.
If you do not want to decorate, you can leave the cake simple, because that way it is also perfect.
