Lazy Cake (Biscuit au Chocolat)

I love chocolate. I mean, I think I am addicted to chocolate. I always have some in the house. Every week, I have to make a chocolate cake, cupcake, biscuit with chocolate or anything else! My children also love it, especially my quadruple chocolate cake (maybe I’ll post it someday). Today I made this biscuit au chocolat, popularly known as Lazy Cake. Why did they call it lazy? Maybe because it doesn’t require any oven cooking, or maybe it can be made with simple ingredients. In any case, what counts is that it is DELICIOUS! 😀


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cup of icing sugar
  • 8 tablespoons of cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 200 grams butter
  • about 250 grams of biscuit ( you can use any kind you like, I used petit beurre biscuit)


  • Beat the eggs until pale yellow, then add the vanilla and sugar while mixing
  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan and add it to the egg mixture, then add the cocoa slowly
  • Snap the biscuits into pieces by hand over the mixture and fold with a spoon to cover all the pieces of biscuit with the chocolate
  • Line a cake tin with plastic cling film and pour the cake mixture in. Press the cake down with a spoon while pouring
  • Cover the tin with cling film and refrigerate for at least 5 hours until set
  • When the cake is hard enough, remove the cling film and take out from the cake tin , place in a serving plate and slice it and you’re ready to enjoy. As simple as that



  1. Are the biscuits like a shortbread?

  2. No they are not.. It is like tea biscuit.

  3. I bet your kids loved this one. What’s better than chocolate and a biscuit crunch!

  4. Wow that really is easy! I gotta try that.

  5. Cool! I could definitely see enjoying this as is, or dressing it up with some fresh fruit, or ice cream.

  6. This looks like something my grandmother used to make.

  7. Sure you can enjoy eating it the way you like.. Eat well!

  8. Wow, love how simple it is. Plus it looks cool when you cut it!

  12. Dark chocolate is good for you – this sounds delicious!

  13. Oh my god! My mom used to make for us when we were kids! I just love it and I’ll be making it for my boys today. So Happy I came across your blog. Thx
