BISCUIT CRUNCH PUDDING, a simple and delicious pudding made with layers of sweetened cream, lotus biscuits, bread and nuts.
You all, how can I emphasize to you that this BISCUIT CRUNCH PUDDING is one dessert that you have to…HAVE TO make immediately. Don’t have any sort of doubt in your mind if you will like this or no. I get the feeling that this is soon going to be each of your faav pudding.
This is my top favourite at the moment. Like, I wish I had made more of this because it ended up being such a hit and I literally couldn’t stop eating it. The people I made this for couldn’t stop eating too. It was all gone in a jiffy. 😀 And that made me very happy.
I have to thank my love, my bestie Nimeena for this amazing recipe. I knew that it would taste good as this recipe came from this great cook. Love everything she makes, seriously she has got magic in her hands. Check out more of her recipes in my blog, like this Shahi Tukra, Naan Khatai, Indian Chicken and Rice with an Arabic Flavor, Shish Tawouk and Prawn Stew.
I have used my favourite lotus biscoff cookies in this. Its getting viral all over the middle east now. So it is easily available here. But if you don’t get it in your place you can use any other sweet cookie. You can use chocolate cookies too. If you really love chocolate flavour, you can mix in Nutella in one of the layers of cream.
So here is the recipe for you. Enjoy! 🙂
For the crunch part:
- 1 handful of almonds crushed (not powdered)
- 15 lotus/ Hide and seek biscuits
- 4 slices bread (sides removed and tear into small pieces with hand)
- 25g butter
For the Cream:
- 2 sachet dream whip powder
- 1 1/2 tin nestle cream
- 2 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
- 1/4 cup milk
- Lotus biscuits tastes best in this. But you can substitute it with hide and seek biscuits or good day biscuits if lotus biscuits are not available in your place.
- Instead of the dream whip powder, you can use whipping cream. In that case don’t use the milk and increase the amount of sweetened condensed milk.
To make the crunch part:
- In a pan, melt the butter and add in the almonds. Stir it for a minute.
- Then add in the bread and crushed biscuits.
- Roast it for about 15 minutes till everything gets crispy.
To make the cream layer:
- Beat the dream whip powder in milk.
- Add in the condensed milk and cream and beat again till creamy.
- Divide the whipped cream into two parts.
- In one half add in half of the crushed biscuits.
- Leave the other half plain.
- In a tray spread a little roasted nut, bread, biscuit mixture as base.
- Then add in the plain dream whip mix.
- Again a layer of roasted mix.
- Then spread a layer of the biscuit and dream whip mixture.
- Finally again a layer of the roasted mix.
Refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Serve cold.[yumprint-recipe id=’158′]

u hav magic in ur hands
Can we use digestive biscuits instead?
Digestive biscuits wouldn’t taste very good in this. Would hide and seek biscuits be available where you stay? Glucose biscuits would be okay too I feel. Didn’t try with it though.
I will check the Indian store. I guess I have seen hide and seek biscuit there. Will definitely try this one. Looks delicious. Thanks
Assalamu alaikum sadia,
I love ur ideas…here we don’t have dream whip powder…what we use instead of this?
Thanks dear. Instead of dream whip powder, use whipping cream. But then you don’t have to use the 1/4 cup of milk. Instead use 1/4 cup of whipping cream, whip it up till firm, then follow the remaining procedure as it is. The other thing you have to keep in mind is that dream whip powder has sugar in it, that is why I added just few tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk. But as whipping cream is unsweetened adjust the sweetness according to your preference.
Thank you…and jazak Allah ,sadia
Hi Sadia, A little confusion here. In the beginning you roast only half of the crushed biscuits and use the remaining with whipped cream? or you crush another set of biscuits for the whipping cream later?
You have to use half crushed biscuits in whipping cream and the other half while roasting.
Yum yum yummy!That pik makes me droll!
Thanks a lot Shazia!
Such a perfect dessert! We loved it. Definitely into my family’s favorites!
Yaaay! Thank you Sonam.
Hey! You didn’t mention where Nutella would be incorporated?
Hey Saba! Nutella can be mixed into one of the cream layer.
Hi Sadia ! Will the cream melt if I keep the pudding outside for long? I’m planning to make this pudding for a party which is outdoor ..obviously desserts are served last! I hope it’s not going to be a flop?
Hello Fathima. It will get a little loose if kept outside for a long time. It won’t melt completely though.
just bumped in to ur site when looking for easy dessert recipe. I need to take this for tom’s lunch at cousins place. Is it ok to make it tonight? Would the biscuit part turn too hard by tom? Please helpn
Hello! Glad that you found my blog. yes, you can make this ahead. The biscuits wont turn hard. Hope this becomes a hit for you. All the best. Hoping to see you often here.
Assalam alaikum sadia.. here i cant find nestle cream so instead of this can i use amul fresh cream..
Walaikumsalaam Faiza. Yes you can use Amul fresh cream for this.
Assalamu alaikum, Sadia. Thanks for a great recipe. Question: does this amount really serve only 4-6 ? I want to make for Eid — so should be enough for about 30 people.
Walaikumsalaam meem. Yes this will be enough only for 5-6 people. You may have to triple this recipe for 30 people.
Assalamualaikum sadia..! Can u tell me how many grams have you used whip powder for this recipe..
Walaikumsalaam Fatima. That is 72 grams whipping powder.
Biscuit crunch pudding turned out yummy…my friends relished it… Thank you so much
yaaay! So happy to know that you all enjoyed the pudding. 🙂 Thank you for the feedback and sorry for the delay in reply.
Hi Saadia.. Liked this recipe and wish to try it for a picnic this weekend. It will be left at room temperature for about 5-6 so I am afraid if it will turn runny.. What do you suggest? any other safe recipes…
Hey Rini. Yes dear, it will melt a bit if you keep it out for that long. A cake would be the best thing to take to a picnic especially in this summer time.
Thank you so much for this recipe..i have tried this recipe..its very tasty..everyone liked this desert..Thank you once again..
Thank you for trying and the feedback. 🙂
Hi dear, thank you for the recipe looks amazing!
Will plain tea biscuits work for this recipe? Have a bunch of them in stock.
Lotus or biscuits like hide and seek would be best.
hi..actually making this tomorrow for a dawat and i have everything except bread..any quick fix..would be rly thankful
Hey Tamanna. I am extremely sorry for replying so late. Hope you found a solution.
Your serving plate has it cut into a perfect round mould , how did u do that?!
I used a round cookie cutter and slid the pudding carefully onto the serving plate.
Looks very delicious….for 10 people is it enough to double this amount??
Yes, you can double the ingredients.
Awww.. Sheesh I followed recipe and added the full crushed biscuit in the roasting mixture. It didn’t say to keep half the crushed biscuit aside for the whipped cream.. While I was doing it I realised u mentioned it again, n den i reached comments section. I..
Hope the final outcome turned out good. Btw the comment is not complete.
Sorry, the comment wasnt complete. i was reading recipe while doing it.. so as i said i added the whole crushed biscuit into cream mixture,.
Anyways, the pudding turned out a great hit, as it wasn’t very sweet , but just perfect. So ppl asked for second serving
Only thing was that cos of the extra biscuit in cream mixture, it wasn’t as creamy , turned little dry – but still yumm.. my mom who usually doesn’t enjoy sweets much, ensured to ask me to pack a little extra for her to take back home. So definitely approved.
That’s amazing. Soo happy. Thank you for the feedback.
