The most simple cake you'll ever not bake.
A fridge cake made with layers of biscuit, chocolate, coconut and whipped cream. The cake I made came about when I was wanting to make a cake, but couldnt be bothered to bake it. I love nutella and thought I could incorporate it.
Prepare 1 cup of instant coffee or plunger coffee. Whip up 300mL of thickened cream until stiff. Careful to over beat the cream as it may curdle and turn into butter.
Line a meatloaf tin with cling wrap then lay one layer of the plain biscuits in the tin. Pour prepared coffee over the 1st layer of biscuits to soak. Spread about 3 tablespoons of the nutella spread over the soaked biscuits. Spread a layer of the whipped cream followed by a sprinkling of the dessicated coconut.
Continue to layer in the order of biscuit, soak with coffee, layer with nutella, layer with whipped cream and finally dessicated coconut.
Repeat until the tin is full to the top. Cover with cling wrap and leave in the fridge for 4 hours, preferably overnight.
Remove the cake from the tin and remove the cling wrap. Sprinkle the cake with dessicated coconut and chocolate shavings.
Serve with strawberries and a hot cuppa of coffee.
I prefer to use morning coffee biscuits as they go well with the coffee. If you use a larger square cake tin, just double the amount of biscuits and cream. There should be some nutella spread and dessicated coconut left.
