Lazy Cake

It’s called a lazy for a reason!

With an estimated preparation time of 20 min, easy to find ingredients and tools, and a no-bake feature, this dessert is definitely one of the most student-friendly ones I make.

I refrained, on purpose, from using fancy ingredients like vegan condensed milk, or even chocolate cooking bars; it’s budget-friendly as well.

So next time you’re invited over to a friend’s, and would like to make something quick and easy, this is your guy. Enjoy!


Ingredients: (25cm/9.8”) 🛒

  • 200gr vegan margarine
  • 3/4 cup raw cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar (vg)
  • 1/4 cup plant milk (I use soya)
  • 130g vegan tea biscuits (Lebanon: go for Gandour’s ‘Biscuits Marie’)
  • 40cm/16” tin foil

👩🏽‍🍳Preparation👩🏽‍🍳:

  1. Using your hands, break the tea biscuits into smaller pieces (picture for reference) and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, melt the margarine completely. You want to proceed with steps 3 & 4 as quickly as possible, before the margarine cools! Otherwise, the cacao and sugar won’t melt well.
  3. Sift through the raw cacao powder into the melted margarine. Mix well while sifting.
  4. Add sugar to wet ingredients, mix until homogenous.
  5. Add plant milk, mix well.
  6. Gradually add biscuit pieces to the mixture, slowly mixing with a spoon or using your hands, until all biscuits are in, and well coated (picture for reference).
  7. Spread the tin foil on the table.
  8. Using your hands, mold the mix into the shape of your cake on the tin foil. Option to use the scraps of chocolate mix as external layer of your cake.
  9. Wrap up the lazy cake.
  10. Freeze overnight.

Serving 🍴:

Take off the tin foil and enjoy!
Store in fridge.
