The No-Bake Lazy Cake (Only 4 Ingredients!)
Slackers, rejoice! Until now, your lack of pastry proficiency might have kept you out of those school bake sales, but no more. Your cake is here! With not an oven or Kitchen Aid mixer in sight, this recipe for chocolatey-biscuity goodness requires only 4 ingredients, one bowl, and some aluminum foil (which also makes clean-up a cinch).
– 2 packets butter biscuits (like LU Le Petit Beurre)
– 5 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
– 7 tbsp butter, softened to room temperature
– 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
Often referred to as an icebox cake, we’re betting this recipe will make you stockpile your pantry with condensed milk, just in case your sweet tooth strikes.
Cut the butter into pieces and, in a mixing bowl, combine with cocoa powder and sweetened condensed milk. (Don’t worry, this is about as labor intensive as this recipe gets).
Break the biscuits into pieces (be careful not to get them too crumbly) and combine with the cocoa/milk mixture. Mix well until all the biscuit pieces are well coated.
Spoon the mixture onto a piece of aluminum foil. With a spatula or spoon, shape the mixture into a loaf.
Wrap tightly in aluminum foil (you can shape the loaf a bit more with your hands while doing this). Freeze for 3-4 hours.
Unwrap the loaf and cut into pieces. Then comes the easiest bit of all – gobbling up the slices before they become too gooey! And if, miraculously, there’s anything left, Lazy Cake will stay good in the freezer for up to one week.
