A no-bake chocolate cake

This is a very simple, quick, no-bake cake for those of us who hate getting near an oven, but like delightful cheese cakes. This recipe is originally from the Yediot Achronot (Latest News) newspaper supplement here in Israel. It should be prepared a day or two before you intend to eat it, so that the flavoring fills out. Definitely not for people on a diet.


(Serves 6-8)




  1. Arrange a layer of biscuits at the bottom of a large baking pan.
  2. Mix the brandy and liqueur in a small container, and pour on top of the biscuits.
  3. Whip the cream, milk, pudding and salt until the mixture is thick.
  4. Pour the mixture on top of the biscuits. Chill well.
  5. When the cream is cold, prepare the frosting by grating the chocolate onto the top of the cake. Refrigerate before serving.


You can replace the milk and cream with 1 1/2 lb of 9% milkfat cheese. This is a product sold in Israel. The nearest equivalent in North America is is sour cream. If you do this, replace the pudding with 1/2 cup of chocolate syrup. If you are not a chocolate lover, you may replace the chocolate pudding with vanilla pudding (or with vanilla extract if you are using the 9% cheese)


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 10 minutes preparation, several hours chilling.
Precision: measure the ingredients.
