Do you want to make an impressive cake with no time?  Here you have my "Bolo de Bolacha" which was described to me as " A Bite of Happiness" when I recently made and gave it to someone.  

I can assure that once you grab a bite you will be delighted by the smoothness and rich flavor. It will be for sure your  “bite of happiness”.

Don´t be suspicious on the easiness of preparation or ingredients used. 
No baking time needed, and you can also give it any shape you want.  
Just follow the instructions below and, best served straight from the refrigerator.

  • 300g to 320g Maria Biscuits
  • 2,5 dl coffee (plus 2 TBSP of coffee liquor )
Coffee Cream:
  • 150g powder sugar
  • 250g unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1 coffee spoon of instant coffee

  • 2 eggs
  • 100g almonds, toasted
Coffee Cream:
1.       Beat very well the butter with the powder sugar; add the eggs one by one mixing very well after each addition.
2.       Mix in the instant coffee and stir very well.
Assembling the cake:
1.       Select the plate for assembling and serving the cake; in another recipient (flat bowl) put the coffee (with the coffee liquor- optional).
2.   Soak the biscuits one by one in the coffee (don´t put more than one at a time or they will become soggy, it´s necessary for them to be wet outside but still dry inside), and place them in stacks in the plate where you are going to serve the cake. Put the first biscuit in the center and 6 more (or as many as you want to make the shape you want) around it.
3.       Spread some coffee cream over the top of biscuits, smooth the surface very well and place another layer of biscuits also soaked in coffee. Repeat this procedure until finish all the biscuits, being the last layer of coffee cream.

4.       Decorate with almonds (Slivered or chopped or a mix of both).
5.   Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
