Pudding Cake with Kinder Ganache


This cake started innocently with a simple, basic vanilla cake made in a tart pan, and then a custard whipped cream on top. But something happened along the way when i realised that there are some of my favorite kinder maxi bars lying in my kitchen shelf.


So i quickly made a nice thick ganache out of the kinder chocolates and kept it far away from my sight till i was getting the cake and the pudding ready……maaaan, the ganache tasted so damn good that i would have finished half of it before i completed the recipe.

The cake recipe is so so very simple, that you can just whip it up in 10-15 minutes. Perfect type of recipe when u don’t have enough time in hand, or like me, when you have a crying baby who is holding your leg and not letting you move around.


The cake just takes 20 minutes to get baked. Meanwhile, you can make the pudding part, which is again very simple. Take your electric beater and with the whisk attachment, just whip nestle cream, whipping cream powder(dream whip) and the caramel custard powder till you get stiff peaks.


Then just assemble the cake by adding a little ganache as first layer, then cream and finally lots of ganache on top. Garnish it with crushed lotus biscuits and chocolate shavings.


Make this for a party and I’m sure it will be a crowd pleaser. Why won’t it be!! it has got the looks, the taste and kinder ganache…yummers! 😋😋
Ingredients:

For the cake:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup butter milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

For the kinder ganache:

  • 160 g kinder maxi (8)
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream

For the custard whipped cream:

  • 225 ml thick cream/nestle cream
  • 18g dream whip powder sachet (1/2 of 1 sachet)
  • 25g caramel custard powder (1/2 if 1 sachet)

For garnish:

  • Chocolate shavings
  • Crushed lotus biscuits


NOTES:

✔️ You can replace the buttermilk with regular milk.

✔️ Make sure you make this in a tart pan like the one in this picture, so that the cake can hold the pudding.  If you can’t find this type of pan, its ok, just make in a normal round pan. If you want the cake to hold more pudding, scrape out a little cake from surface to make a well, keeping the sides as such.

    1. Hello .. I must really say a big thank u ….I tried this out…and it was a crowd pleaser….and also like your new design of your blog…. classy I would say!!

  1. Ma Sha Allah the cake looks amazing..!

    Just want to know how do I scrape out the top of the cake if I’m using a normal pan? can it be done neatly? :/

  2. Hi Sadia, do you think if I did a chocolate cake instead of vanilla it would taste as good as your original recipe here? There are not many takers for vanilla in my house. I thought I will borrow your chocolate cake recipe and follow the rest of the instructions here for the pudding cake. Do you think that these flavors will complement each other?
