Process:

Bake the Cake: 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F
  • Grease a 9×13 inch cake pan with some butter and line it with some parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cake enhancer.
  • Mix well. Keep Aside.
  • In a bowl add sweetened condensed milk, milk, oil, vanilla extract. Mix well.
  • Add in the flour mixture gradually and keep mixing with spatula or a hand blender.
  • Mix everything until smooth and lump free. Do not over beat.
  • Now transfer the batter into the cake pan
  • And bake for 15 mins or until toothpick inserted at the center comes out clean.
  • Cool the cake in the cake pan resting it on a wire rack for 10 mins.
  • Transfer the cake onto the cooling rack after 10 mins and let it cool completely.

Custard:

  • Into the separated 1/4 Cup of milk add in the corn starch and make a lump free milk mixture.
  • Add the remaining milk into a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Add in the sugar and butter.
  • Add in the prepared slurry into the milk and cook until the mixture thickens.
  • It takes about 5 mins.
  • Keep whisking all the time so that no lumps form, and you get a smooth custard.
  • Once done, strain the mixture if needed.
  • Now you have the custard mixture. Cool the custard to room temperature and refrigerate so that it becomes thick.
  • You can make the custard a day before and use in the recipe.

Making Espresso using traditional Contraption:

  • In the top cup with the perforated holes, add in the coffee powder.
  • Press with the lid genlty and add 3/4 Cup of water.
  • Let it brew for 10 mins.
  • So you get strong coffee collected in the container beneath.

  • Add heavy Cream into a clean glass bowl.
  • Add sugar, vanilla and whip it till soft peaks.

  • Add the chilled custard.
  • Beat well into the cream.
  • Cover and refrigerate. We use this while assembling the dessert later.

Assembly:

  • Place one of them onto the tin (I used an 8×8 inch suare glass container) and poke with a fork all over.
  • Carefully spoon in half of the espresso.
  • Add half of the cream mixture.
  • Spread the cream evently all over the cake.
  • Grate some chocolate or dust it with some cocoa all over the cream layer.
  • Top it with the other half of the cake.
  • Press the cake slightly.
  • Poke it all over and spoon in the remaining half of the decoction/ espresso.
  • Add in the remaining cream mixture, spread it all over.
  • Grate some chocolate all over the cream mixture.
