Nesquik Cake

Nesquik Cake

This cake is rich, moist, creamy and delicious. It’s a calorie bomb, but trust me, you’ll love it! And I loved those layers so much that I decided not to decorate it at all. Well, maybe just some Nesquik dusting over a doily :)

Nesquik Cake
(original recipe)

Biscuit

2 egg whites
2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp ground walnuts
1/2 Tbsp flour
a pinch of salt

Beat egg whites stiff with a salt. Add sugar and beat more until incorporated. Carefully fold in walnuts and flour. Bake in a 20 cm diameter spring form pan in a preheated oven on 180°C for about 15 minutes.

You need to bake 3 biscuits like this.

Nesquik Cake

Nesquik cream

6 egg yolks
340 ml milk
3 1/2 Tbsp flour
3 1/2 Tbsp + 85 g sugar
85 g butter
70 g Nesquik chocolate drink mix

Cook egg yolks, milk, flour and 3 1/2 Tbsp sugar until thick stirring continuously. Do not stop stirring for a second as it can easily burn. Let cool completely.

Beat butter with 85 g sugar, Nesquik powder and chilled egg yolk cream. Leave in the fridge.

Assembling

370 ml heavy cream
2 Tbsp powdered sugar
100 g dark chocolate
40 g butter

In a double boiler melt chocolate with butter. Allow it to cool a little bit and then divide into 3 parts and spread over the baked biscuits. Let cool completely.

Beat heavy cream with sugar and leave in the fridge.

Assemble in this order: biscuit, Nesquik cream, heavy cream, repeat two more times.

For decoration, sprinkle Nesquik powder on top. I let my cake stand in the fridge overnight, then placed a doily on top and sifted Nesquik powder over. After carefully removing the doily, a beautiful pattern appears on the cake.

    What an interesting idea! It looks delightful. Dusting the Nesquik powder over the doily is a brilliant idea – very creative, looks fancy, but is something almost anyone can do.

    Redovno pratim vas blog i hronicno sam odusevljena:)Prvi put sam se usudila nesto napraviti sa bloga i to je nesquick torta.Malo je reci da je sve poslo po zlu.Kore su mi presvetle i ljepljive..kao da se ne radi o istim sastojcima.Krema je prerijetka…iako sam dodavala vise brasna…Sliepo sam pratila receptImate li ikakve predstave sta se moglo destitiPozdrav Jasna

    Draga Jasna,Strašno mi je krivo što Vam torta nije uspela :( Ja sam je pravila samo ovaj jedan put, prema Gaginom receptu i nije bilo problema. Za koru koliko se sećam, ona i jeste malkice lepljiva sama po sebi, pošto je "pusličasta" a krem je za nijansu gušći od pudinga. Cela torta je veoma kremasta i mekana, ali meni se takve baš i sviđaju. Generalno, ako se u krem doda margarin onda je on dosta čvršći nego sa puterom, ali ja ne volim njegov ukus pa koristim puter. Stvarno nemam pojma šta je pošlo naopako :( Ovo je zaista jedna od najukusijih torti koje sam ikada jela, dajte joj još jednu šansu :)

    Svakom se desi da mu kolac ne uspije, ali par sati pred novu samo meni:))Gosti ocekuju tortu…moram nesto smisliti…Mislim da sam premalo kuhala zumanjke,brasno i miljeko..Bojala se da ne koaguliraju, pa vjerovatno se nedovoljno zgusnulo:((Probala sam je..ukus je fantastican!Jasna

    Wonderful cake, taste great, i made it today. But I thing I did something wrong with the biscuits, they came out very anemic and soft(maybe because the form was larger by 4 cm,who knows…), but I somehow managed to spread the chocolate on it, and it tasted wonderful anyway. Thank you and your great recipes!

    Interesuje me da li bi ova torta podnijela tezinu fondana?

      Samira, ovo je ekstremno meka torta. Nikako fondan! Meni nekad ispadne ovako kao na slilci a nekad mi se fil opusti pa se skoro razliva.

    does it have to be baked in a spring form pan? it looks delicious i’m dying to bake it, but all i have is cake pans

    • Marija
      November 29, 2011

      Yes, you can bake it in a cake pan. Just make sure you line it with baking paper so the biscuit doesn’t stick.

    I made this cake both stacked, but also as a trifle when the meringue didnt quite work out. I also added a bit of coffee syrup to make it a mocha chocolate cake. BEST CAKE EVER! I have renamed it “Palachinka” and my guests have swooooooned over it.
