A variation on Australia's "traditional" chocolate ripple cake, only using Milo and gingernuts. Make up to 3 days ahead. Prep time does not include overnight chilling. Recipe from Nestle.
- 1⁄3 cup milo
- 1⁄2 cup liqueur (optional) or 1⁄2 cup milk (optional)
- 300 ml thickened cream
- 250 g gingernut biscuits
- dark chocolate, grated, to serve
- Beat Milo and cream together until stiff peaks form.
- Spread 1 side of a biscuit with Milo mixture and sandwich together to another biscuit. Place on a tray. Spread another biscuit with mixture and sandwich to the first 2, and continue with remaining biscuits to create a log shape.
- Optional: Dip each biscuit briefly in liqueur or milk before speading with milo mixture.
- Using a flat knife, spread remaining milo mixture over log to cover.
- Loosely cover with cling wrap and refrigerate overnight to allow biscuits to soften.
- Sprinkle log with grated chocolate. To serve, slice on an angle instead of straight across so you can see the layers of biscuit and cream.
I made this for a Christmas dessert using an alternating pattern of gingernuts & chocolate ripples, I didn't soak the biscuits & founjd that the ripple biscuits softened better than the gingernuts. This is a really nice spin on the ever popular chocolate ripple cake & I will make this again but will soak the gingernuts next time.
