Yesterday evening some friends called and they said they wanted to visit us the following day. We accepted without hesitating as we didn’t meet for a long time. After replacing the receiver, I started to think what to serve them with tea. We didn’t want to go shopping to buy some ingredients at that time of the day because we just came from work. My dear husband went to kitchen and came back with two packages of tea biscuits (we use Turkish Eti Petit Beurre), and I got the message: Making mosaic cake!
The name of this cake is coming from mosaic stones. When sliced, it seems like mosaic stones. You don’t need so many ingredients for this cake, the only thing that matters about this cake is that you should wait it in refrigerator one night (at least 8 hours). Altough it’s very easy to prepare, it has a fascinating taste and it goes very well with tea or coffee.
Mozaik Pasta Ingredients • 2 packages tea biscuits (400gr) • 100gr butter • 2 cups milk • 6 tbsp cacao • ½ cup sugar • ½ cup crumbled walnuts or hazelnuts • Grated coconut for garnish Melt butter in a pot and add milk, sugar and cacao. Stir it continually and bring it to boil. It becomes like pudding. Take it from fire and pour this mixture in a large tray to get cool.
Crumble all biscuits in a cup and pour it on the cacao mixture before it gets cold (shouldn’t be too hot or too cold). Add walnut or hazelnuts and mix them to combine. Wait for 10 minutes so that biscuits absorb the mixture.
When it gets cold enough, put this mixture in small bags with a spoon. Do not put all in one bag. I put it in 4 bags evenly. Then roll the bags. Put these bags in refrigerator and wait them for at least 8 hours.
30 minutes before serving, put the bags in deep freezer to maket hem colder. After taking them out, remove the mosaic cake from the bag by cutting the bag with a knife. Now you can slice the cake and garnish it with coconut.
Our friends loved it so much that I gave them one of the bags so that they would go on eating at their home.
