METHOD

  • Line the tray with baking paper and as many crackers as you can. I managed to fit 5 rows of 5, 25 all together on the bottom of the tray.
  • To prepare the cream boil 4 cups of the milk with vanilla & caster sugars, coconut milk powder and butter.
  • In a jug combine eggs, egg yolks, flour and left over 2 cups of milk whisking everything until well combined.
  • Gradually fold in egg mixture into pot with milk, continue boiling and stirring with a whisk until cream is smooth and starting to get thick.
  • Carefully transfer half of the cream onto the cracker base and spread evenly.
  • Top with about 25 petit beurre biscuits.
  • Cover everything with the rest of custard cream.
  • Top again with crackers.
  • To prepare the glaze combine in the pot sugar, butter, cocoa powder and milk and stir constantly.
  • As soon as  the glaze is all melted and smooth pour it over the crackers, use the bush to cover all the areas.
  • Place ready cake in the fridge for couple of hours or even overnight.
  • Slice with a knife following the lines in between the crackers.

Make about 25 small portions.
