Servings 6 people


  • 350 gms Amaretti biscuits
  • 175 gms Dark chocolate 70 to 75 percent cocoa solids
  • 425 ml Double cream
  • 7 tbsp Brandy
  • Cocoa powder (to dust over the cake)
  • 1.2 litre pudding basin lightly greased with any flavourless oil


  • Break up the chocolate into a heat proof bowl.
  • Pour in the double cream.
  • Put the bowl over a pan of barely simmering water and leave, until the chocolate has melted.
  • Take the bowl off the heat and with an electric hand mixer, whisk the mixture, until you have a cold creamy mixture.
  • Pour the brandy into a shallow dish.
  • Dip the biscuits, one at a time, first into the liquor, then into the chocolate cream and arrange a layer of biscuits in the base of the pudding basin.
  • Spread a layer of the chocolate mixture over the first layer of biscuits.
  • Repeat the whole process, until you have 4 layers.
  • Place a saucer (one that fits inside the rim of the pudding basin) on top of the mixture, put some weight on top and leave in the fridge over night.
  • Before serving, dip the basin in hot water for a few seconds and turn the pudding out on to a flat serving plate.
  • Put the cake back into the fridge for 15 mins to allow the outside to get firm again.
  • Finally, dust with cocoa powder.
