The traditional grandmother’s cake is made from biscuits and flan. However, its popularity is such that, today, there are different versions of this same dessert. One of them is the cookie and chocolate cake that we share below.

Instead of flan we are going to make vanilla custard, which will give the cake a really incredible flavor. However, if you prefer to make it with flan, it is totally valid. In any case, read on to discover from RecetasGratis how to make granny’s cookie and chocolate cake , you will love it! Also, at the end of the recipe we share our tricks to prepare this dessert faster.

10 diners 45m Dessert Low difficultyAdditional Features: Cheap Cost, ColdIngredients:

  •  2 packs of biscuits (400 g)
  • For the chocolate cream
  •  200 milliliters of milk cream or cream to mount
  •  250 grams of chocolate
  •  1 tablespoon of butter
  • For the Custard
  •  5 eggs
  •  4 tablespoons sugar
  •  1 teaspoon of the essence of vanilla
  •  1 branch of cinnamon
  •  1 liter of milk
  •  2 tablespoons of cornstarch

Steps to follow to make this recipe:one

Prepare the custard first . To do this, heat the milk with the cinnamon stick until it boils. Remove the saucepan from the heat, let it warm up a bit, remove the branch and reserve the milk.

Tip: You can add lemon zest to enhance the flavor.


Beat the egg yolks with the sugar and add the cornstarch.

Add the beaten egg yolks to the milk and the vanilla essence, return the saucepan to the heat and heat over medium heat. Stir non-stop until it boils and, at this point, remove the saucepan from the heat again and set it aside so that the custards come to room temperature while you continue to prepare Grandma’s cookie and chocolate cake.

Now, prepare the chocolate cream . To do this, melt the chopped chocolate with the tablespoon of butter in a double boiler. Then mix it with the warm cream. Another way to do this step is in the microwave, although if we want to make Grandma’s chocolate cake and cookies, the traditional one, it is appropriate to opt for the bain-marie.

Tip: Add a vanilla bean for more flavor.

Place a first layer of cookies in a preferably rectangular mold. To assemble the grandmother’s cookie and chocolate cake it is preferable to use rectangular or square cookies, although if the mold is round you can use type Maria.6

Distribute a layer of chocolate, another of cookies, another of custard, cookies again and start again with the chocolate. The order must always be the same until finishing with a layer of chocolate.


Keep the cake in the fridge for an hour or two to finish setting and serve it by cutting into square pieces. This is an easy and delicious cookie cake, the chocolate cookie cake of a lifetime. In addition, since it is made without an oven, it is much cheaper.

If you don’t have enough time but you still want to enjoy this delicious biscuit and chocolate cake, a very effective trick is to buy a custard mix . Only with this you can save a lot of time, since you only need to dissolve an envelope of preparation in half a glass of milk, add it to the saucepan with the remaining milk (the total is still one liter), the vanilla and the sugar.

When it starts to boil, remove the saucepan and move the mixture in circular movements for two minutes, you will see that it thickens quickly. For this case, you won’t need the eggs or the cornstarch.

When preparing the chocolate cream , choose the microwave option , it is less traditional but faster, much more! You just have to place the chopped chocolate with the cream and butter in a container and heat it for 2 minutes at maximum power. Remove the container, mix and reheat for another minute if the chocolate is not ready. It is very important to heat in short intervals of time so as not to burn the chocolate.

Finally, another very useful trick that will save you time is to reserve Grandma’s cookie and chocolate cake in the freezer once it is made. In this way, 15-30 minutes will be enough for it to set and you can serve it.

Add to the bowl the soft butter and the cream or milk cream, mix. We have opted for cream to prepare a grandmother’s cake without yogurt, but it can always be substituted for this ingredient.


We sift the flour together with the yeast. We are incorporating this mixture to the dough little by little, with a spatula or spoon, until everything is well mixed.


We put all the dough in the mold and cover the entire surface with the sugar and cinnamon. We put it in the oven at 180 ºC until it is ready, for approximately 30-40 minutes. To know if the homemade sponge cake is ready, after about 25 minutes we will click in the center and if it comes out dry it will be done, if not it will be left for a few more minutes.


When it is ready we take it out and let it cool. And ready to eat! This recipe for grandmother’s homemade cake, without yogurt, is sensational, a delight that you must try. Another lifelong sweet that I advise to prepare is this recipe for fried cookies.
