I made this cake about 2 months ago with leftover ingredients. The cream turned out delicious and very airy. I didn’t soak ladyfingers because I thought it would soften with cream, but I was wrong, the bottom layer didn’t soften well, so I recommend dipping the bottom layer in some strong coffee, only half thickness, not all the way. The second layer can be left untouched or dipped very little.

No-bake chocolate cake

Refrigerate time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 30 minutes
Servings 8


  • 30 ladyfingers
  • 400 ml milk
  • 150 g sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 300 ml heavy cream
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 g vanilla sugar
  • 20-30 g chocolate chips


  • To prepare the cream, mix sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, and cinnamon in a saucepan. Slowly mix in the milk with the help of a hand whisk.
  • Place over medium-low heat and stir constantly, when the cream thickens and begins to boil, remove from the heat, transfer to another bowl, and cover the top with plastic wrap so that it touches the surface of the cream. Cool to room temperature.
  • Whip the cool heavy cream, when it thickens but is not yet completely creamy, slowly whisk in the cooled cream, and add the vanilla. The cream is ready.
  • Dip ladyfingers a little in the coffee, but do not soak too much. Lay them in a single layer on the bottom of a cake mold.
  • Spread half of the cream, then arrange the ladyfingers again, you can no longer dip them in coffee, spread the remaining cream and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Refrigerate cake for 1-2 hours.
    Bon Appetit!
