About Me!

Hi, thanks for stopping by, my name is Anna Kosti and I am 17 years old. I live in Larnaca, Cyprus, with my family and I am still going to high school. I fell in love with baking since the age of 9! I started with simple recipes to making complicated and fascinating desserts. I am planning to join university next year, overseas, to become a professional pastry chef.

This recipe is by far one of my favourite childhood recipes! This chocolate biscuit cake, also called Greek Doukissa, is a no bake chocolate cake with layers of cookies in between to give that crunch effect.

It’s just so good and so delicious. Also, adding Nutella takes this cake to another level.

This cake can be made in many situations like casual afternoon coffee, birthday cake (using different mould) or even chill it (scoop and roll truffles after).

This recipe is very flexible and can be also combined with different types of nuts or even dried fruits. You can also decorate it with a simple ganache or fondant.

This cake can last up to 5 days in the fridge covered with plastic wrap or in room temperature in a cool spot.
