Chocolate Biscuit Pudding



There are some desserts that are so frequently made when we were young. As days go by or years move on, they get forgotten. That is how I would look at the good old biscuit pudding. Thanks to the umpteen variety of ingredients available in the market, we experiment with various flavors and varieties and try not to look at the old style dishes, that graced our tables so effortlessly and we eagerly waited for them. Now, I feel that we are under pressure to make something new all the time. At home, even if I want to go back to some old favorites, the kids feel that I am taking an easy way out! πŸ˜• It is actually very irritating at times… But if there is a dessert they and HD loves if given anytime, then it is this simple biscuit pudding! I had promised I would share the recipe soon in this post, so the dessert bulldozed its way ahead to make it to the blog, frustrating all those drafts that are waiting in line! πŸ˜‰




This is one of the first desserts I learned to make. Anytime, my mind goes blank, I go ahead and make this. I don’t know why it took so long to appear on the blog, but each time I made it, the pictures weren’t good or they just disappeared in no time. This is actually a very easy party dessert too. There are hardly any ingredients required, takes so little time to assemble and you can make it in advance and allow it to get cozy in the fridge as much as you would want it to! The kids love it so much that if they see a pack of petit beurre in the pantry, they just say, “Ummi, make that biscuit pudding!” Very rarely they ask for anything of mine like that… they are definitely a hard-to-please bunch, so any request like this is always welcomed with wide arms. πŸ˜€ The quantity I am sharing here is just snug enough for a 4 x 4 inch pan. You can double or triple the quantity as you like. I normally prefer my chocolate custard to be a little gooey but when I make it for guests, I tighten it up a bit, do refer to the notes. If you love biscuit based puddings and desserts, here is a few for you to look at…

  • 150 gm pettit beurre biscuits or any square biscuit of your choice
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 1/2 tsp instant coffee
  • Grated chocolate for topping
  • 500 ml milk
  • 2 tbsp corn flour refer notes
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence


  • For the pudding base, combine ingredients from milk to salt in a saucepan.
  • Keep on low flame and cook till the mixture thickens. Switch off and whisk in the vanilla. Set aside.
  • Add the coffee into the water and mix.
  • Take a 1 ltr (4 x 4 inch) glass pan, line the bottom with biscuits, after dipping into the coffee.
  • Spread a thin layer of the chocolate mixture on top.
  • Dip another layer of biscuits into the coffee and layer into the dish. Finish off with the layer of the chocolate mixture.
  • Cover with cling film and allow the pudding to set in the fridge for a couple of hours.
  • Just before serving, top with grated chocolate.


The mentioned corn flour will give a glossy mixture. If you like your custard a little thicker, add an extra tbsp of cornflour.
As a rule of thumb, add 1 tbsp of cornflour for every cup of milk for a glossy custard or 1 1/2 tbsp for a thicker custard.
You can top with nuts as required.

  6. In contrast to you, I do not have a sweet tooth so hardly venture out into the deserts area!
    Although I have never tried any of your desert recipes – something makes me feel that it ain’t too sweet – just the level of sweetness apt for me. Liked the concept of biscuit pudding:)
    You are one superwoman – not a day goes without posts on your blog:)

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Yes Ria, my desserts and cakes are never sweet. They are always on the milder side and this is confirmed by many who have had them. People who need a little high sugar call my cooking “diabetic cooking” πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for your kind words, Ria… πŸ™‚
