Ingredients

  • 300 g Tea Biscuits typically 1 Pack
  • 1 can Condensed Milk 397 g
  • 7 tbsp Cocoa Powder unsweetened

Instructions

  • In a bowl, mix the condensed milk with the cacao powder very well.
  • Crumble in the biscuit using a mixture of small pieces and crumbs, and combine well, ensuring all the biscuits are coated.
  • Spread out a large piece of plastic wrap on the counter, and spoon the mixture in the middle.
  • Mould it into a log shape by wrapping the cling film around it and twisting at each end. 
  • Cover the log with foil and freeze for at least 8 hours or preferably overnight (depending on the power of your freezer, the 8 hours may not be enough).
  • To serve, unwrap the foil and start peeling the plastic wrap up to the point you want to cut, then cut ½ inch to 1 inch thick slices with a sharp knife that has been dipped in hot water. Serve immediately

Notes

  • If you struggle to create a log shape, you can line a cake pan with cling film and spoon in the mixture inside for square/rectangular shapes.
  • Don't skip the plastic wrap! If you only use foil it will stick to the cake once frozen. The plastic wrap however will peel right off before you cut it.
  • If the plastic wrap starts sticking to it, it means you need to freeze it for longer. Pop it back in the freezer and try again. Optimum freezing time is overnight.
  • The lazy cake can stay in the freezer for a few months. Just ensure that you return it to the freezer after you're done cutting
