When you want to make a light, quick, yet delicious dessert that your family will enjoy, this is the dessert for you!! I've used Marie biscuits for this one, but you can use just about any good solid sweet tea-biscuit that you like.

tea biscuits
whole milk
6 tbsp.
pinch of salt
1 tsp.
vanilla essence
2 tsp.
instant coffee mixed in 1/2 cup warm water
3 tbsp.
corn flour/cornstarch
3 tbsp.
cocoa powder

First, prepare the coffee mixture. Let it cool to room temperature. Now remove half the biscuits from the packet (100gm) and proceed to dip each one on both sides then lay them out in a dish. Set aside.

Start preparing the pudding. Mix the corn flour and cocoa powder in a small bowl, add a few tbsp. of milk and stir together until you have a smooth paste without any lumps. If you add too much liquid at once, you won't be able to mix these well so go slow and add only enough milk to get the mixture into a paste.

Pour the rest of the milk into a pot and add the sugar n salt. Bring to the boil then lower the heat and add the vanilla. Then add the cocoa+cornflour paste and keep stirring. The pudding will start to thicken very quickly. Once it is of the consistency of custard...not too thin but not too thick, turn the heat off and take the pot off the stove.

Pour half the hot pudding onto the layered biscuits. You can sprinkle some nuts over this if you want. Now continue dipping the remaining half packet of the biscuits in the coffee as you did before and make another layer over the pudding. Finally pour the remaining pudding over the soaked biscuits and garnish with some nuts of your choice.

Let the biscuit pudding come to room temperature then cover and refrigerate until well-chilled. You can have it as it is, or serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

If you want a coffee-free version, dip the biscuits in some milk instead of coffee and proceed with the remainder of the recipe as directed.

Enjoy! :)

W/Salaam, sounds like a great idea!

Slms i wanted to knw if i can add melted chocolate to the cornflour paste instead of cocoa to give a rich flavour

assalamualaikum fauzia,
i tried this recipe twice, and am encountering a problem.after mixing the cocoa-cornflour mixture very well, when i add it to the milk, there are lumps that don't dissolve even after stirring for long....... please help

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, when you mix the cocoa-cornflour, do you add a few tbsp. of milk like I've directed in the recipe? The cocoa-cornflour mixture has to be a loose 'paste' for it to dissolve into the liquid. Adding any powder directly to liquid inevitably will result in lumps. If you're doing this and you still have lumps, then I think you should try a different brand of cornflour for better results.

jazakillahkhair, will try n let u knw in shaa Allah.....


I had the same issue,when I added the choclate corn flour paste in the milk I still had lumps that did not dissolve. I tried it twice, once while on the stove, once off the stove and still got lumps..But I have to add that the taste was awesome and everyone loved it,so thank you very very much!!

try making the corn flour and cocoa mixture shudnt be a very thick mixture but rather a very thin and liquid like when u add it to the milk wont from lumps..i had the same problem the first tym i made it but later i made it into a very thin paste and it worked..gud luck! :)


You use whole milk in your recipe...would semi skimmed milk work just as well?

Ramadan Mubarak!

PS. your recipes are going to help me soo much this Ramadan so jazakhallah in advance!

Hi and thanks. Cornflour is also known as cornstarch, you need it for thickening of the pudding.

Can i use nutella instead of cocoa powder???? Plz help thanks in advance

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Have never tried that, not sure how the results would be.

Aasalamualiekum Fauzia

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, basically any plain biscuit (like milk biscuits) that one would enjoy with their tea.

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, 4-5 people.

in the above commnts..someone askd dat can v use chocolate insted of coffee..wat chocolate is it? i hv bought drinkng chocolate powder..can i use dat ??and can i use nutella insted of cocoa pwder?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Chocolate powder of any sort. I would not recommend nutella in place of cocoa powder, one is powder the other is paste, two different things. Best to try the recipe as is first and then make adjustments the next time. :)

hi Fauzia, i tried this recipe on Eid and its taste went too good, however it didn't thicken to the level i expected. Secondly can u tell me what this "whole milk" is? i mean is it normal milk or packaged one??

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

You can add more cornflour to thicken it next time. Whole milk means full fat milk, it gives thicker results.

Can u please tell me name and brand of the biscuits u used. They look crunchy not at all soggy even after a dip in coffee. U r great.

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

I used Marie tea biscuits. :)

AOA hru?? what if i use kishta cream instead of cornflour??

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam am well thanks. Kishta will not have the same thickening effect as cornflour. Best to use cornflour or even custard powder.

Tried this recipe the other day... Ended up consuming the whole thing within 24 hours, lol! I didn't have enough cornflour at the time - only 1-2tbsp - but still it turned out fine.
Some of the coffee-dipped biscuits tasted "karwa" - I guess 'cause I didn't coat them properly with enough chocolate pudding.
But all in all, it was great!
Jazaakillaah khayr. May Allaah reward you with good :)

A favourite dessert on my mind ever since i was a young girl... easy peasy dessert and yummilicious too. I've tried so many other ways to prepare this dessert, but nothing's as easy and tasty as your recipe. thnx again. Recently i made it for A christmas party,..and the entire dish was wiped off in seconds.... everyone went for second serves happened for my son's b'day too..

Made it exactly according to recipe and turned out super yummy. Kids ate the pudding straight from the pan it was sooo good! I dipped tea biscuits in milk which gave a perfect soft texture in the layers. Super duper like! Will add cherries, white chocolates shavings and nuts to serve for guests on Eid.

Made it like u said... Its awesome...
