Yes! This recipe really includes BROWN BREAD! You wouldn't know it unless someone told you though, because the end result has no hint of bread flavor in it! The taste was fantastic and sooo much like a moist and delicious black forest! Only with a slightly healthier twist to it. Plus it literally takes moments to prepare!

loaf of a day-old brown bread
3/4 cup
grinded sugar
1/2 cup
assorted nuts
1 1/2 cups
Cadbury's drinking chocolate powder
1/4 cup
cocoa powder
2 tsp.
vanilla essence
1 ½ cups fresh cream mixed with half cup whole milk and 2 tbsp. icing sugar
Additional Ingredients
1 cup whipping cream plus 1 tbsp. icing sugar, whipped to soft peaks
sliced strawberries or strawberry sauce
Ingredients for Strawberry Sauce
2 cups
fresh or unsweetened frozen strawberries
1/3 cup
1-2 tsp.
1/3 cup
red food colouring

Wash and hull fresh strawberries. If using frozen strawberries, thaw before using. Chop the strawberries into small pieces. Reserve a third of the chopped strawberries.

Mix water and cornstarch until dissolved, pour into a pan and add the strawberries and sugar. Simmer until the sauce thickens. Pour the sauce into a blender and blend until smooth, then pour it back into the pan.

Add the reserved third of chopped strawberries and simmer for another minute. Finally add the vanilla essence and some drops of red food colouring if you like.

Refrigerate until chilled before serving over your dessert.

Now on to the making of this AMAZING dessert.

Grind the bread slices and pour them into a bowl. Add the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, drinking chocolate powder, nuts and 1 tsp. of the vanilla essence. Stir these dry ingredients together well.

Take a dessert dish or individual bowls. Put half the bread mixture into the dessert dish, drizzle half the fresh cream/milk over it and then press it down into a layer using the back of a spoon. Add some strawberry slices or sauce and half of the softly whipped cream. Repeat with the remaining bread mixture, followed by the fresh cream/milk mixture and the whipped cream. Top with some more strawberries/sauce and some grated chocolate.

Chill for a few hours, tastes even better the following day.

Serve and enjoy! :)

W/Salaam, yes you can if you want, but it gets light and fluffy when whipped.

salaams...the recipe says 1 1/2 cup fresh cream with 1/2 cup whole milk...for drizzling, for that can i use the whipping cream? Or do i hve to use double cream? I am a bit confused.

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, you can use the whipping cream.

Can i use ready strawberry filling can , is it same like sauce?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes you can.

dear Fauzia,how do you make Cadbury's drinking chocolate powder?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

It is a ready made powder. Like cocoa powder, only sweetened.

ASAK Sr. Fauzia, could you please tell me approximately how many slices of bread is needed? cos in U.S the size is pretty big. Thanks

can we use strawberry crush in place of strawberry sauce...???

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes you can.

salaam sister.regarding sugar,you ask for grinded sugar, do you mean icing sugar.

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, no just grind normal sugar to a powder. Icing sugar normally contains cornstarch which is not needed for this recipe.
