How to Make Chocolate Biscuit Cake -The Queen’s Favorite Cake

Discover how to make Chocolate Biscuit Cake, the royal dessert favorite that's perfect for any celebration.

  • Total Time: 1 hour 50 minutes (including chilling)
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x



200g Tea cookies

140g / 3/4 cup Semi-sweet chocolate

140g / 1/2 cup + 3 tbsp Sugar

140g / 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp Butter

120g / 3/4 cup Dark chocolate

120g / 1/2 cup Whipping cream


Chocolate Biscuit Cake Base 

  1. Cut your cookies into small pieces.
  2. In a bowl, whisk room temperature butter and sugar for 5 minutes.
  3. Cut your chocolate into pieces.
  4. Microwave until everything is almost melted.
  5. Mix to help the last pieces to melt.
  6. Add the chocolate to the butter mixture.
  7. Whisk some more.
  8. Add the tea cookie pieces until they are all coated with the chocolate filling.
  9. Place parchment paper at the bottom of your 7-inch springform mold.
  10. Pour all your filling into the mold.
  11. Now you have a very uneven cake.
  12. Cover with a piece of parchment paper and use a flat glass to press down on the cake.
  13. You can now place the cake in the fridge for at least an hour.

The Ganache & Unmolding

  1. Take the cake out of the fridge for 20 minutes.
  2. Use a torch to help the cake to detach from your mold.
  3. You can also pass a knife all around the cake; doing both is the best option!
  4. Unmold and place back in the fridge.
  5. Place the chocolate pieces and the cream into a bowl.
  6. Microwave for 1 minute.
  7. Stir until the ganache is homogeneous and shiny.
  8. Let it cool down a little because you want it to be warm.
  9. Place your cake on a cooling rack.
  10. I like to place a clean baking tray under to collect the dripping ganache.
  11. Pour your ganache on the cake.
  12. Use a spatula to remove the excess ganache.
  13. Place on a cake board.
  14. Decorate as you like.
  15. We decided to make a powder of the cookies and coat the bottom!
