I got this idea of making this simple recipe when I received a message by one of our viewers saying she wanted to make a cake for her daughter and husband for their birthday. She does not have an oven and also she doesn’t eat eggs. I know that no one of us can go out or order a cake at this moment but this shouldn’t stop us from making that special day of our close ones from being special for them. This recipe has basic ingredients and I have mentioned enough substitutes for each ingredient, if you still feel you don’t have the ingredients and need substitutions let me know I will try to repo dar with other options! I have made the simplest version by not using a cooker or steamer also because some cakes require baking powder or something or the other and I wanted to make this really simple. So prepare this cake for your loved ones, video call all of your friends and family and you could have a cake cutting by staying at home and also maintain social distancing. I hope this would help you guys. Trying my best to prepare the easiest recipes for you guys! Stay at home and stay safe!

Lock down No Bake Chocolate Cake

* 20-25 glucose biscuits (Crushed biscuits should be around 3 cups, which ever biscuits you use)
* 3-6 tbsp sugar (use powdered sugar or grind the granulated sugar if you don’t have powdered sugar at home, add sugar as per your taste, I added just 3 tbsp)
* 4 tbsp cocoa powder (any chocolate drinking powder should work like bournvita, milo etc)
* Butter 125-150 grams (softened, you can also use white butter)
* Nuts 1/2 cup (optional, you can use any nuts available like walnuts, almonds, cashews, just toast them before adding)

Method:
* If you are using granulated sugar, grind the sugar using a mixer grinder.
* Take a ziplock bag or a clean cloth and crush the biscuits. You could also use a mixer grinder but just coarsely grind the biscuits.
* In a mixing bowl add powdered sugar, cocoa powder, crushed biscuits and softened butter.
* Mix well until it turn into doughy-fudgy consistency.
* Now line a cake tin or any bowl with butter paper, aluminum foil or butter (butter is sometimes tricky to de-mould) cling film also works.
* Now add the batter and press to shape well.
* Now refrigerate for at least 15 minutes
* De-mould the cake and now it’s time to decorate
* Decorate with cocoa powder, chocolate shavings or whatever is available and whatever you like. Jam, chocolate sauces, caramel sauce, chocolate ganache, fruits, nuts anything can be used.
* The idea is to use what you have at home and stay at home while you can still make that cake!
* Enjoy the cake with your loved ones

PS. I know that these times are very challenging and there is a lot more to be done, I have been supporting the people who work with me and as well as people who come to our houses to collect our waste and who are still working right now by some of the other means. This video is just a positive note in these terrible times! Let’s stay safe and stay as positive as possible!

We must really appreciate this chef for “ actually “ understanding the situation and crisis and trying his best to help people. Not many youtubers try to help their viewers. He could have just asked her to google no bake cake but he instead made a detailed video regarding it. Bravo chef!!!!
