Digestive Biscuit Cake with Pistachio Pudding

A very moist cake made with powdered digestive biscuit topped with a rich pistachio pudding. 

I love making cake with pudding on top. I have posted many other cake recipes like this before. And all of it are amazing and I make them regularly for parties. It never fails to impress the guests. If you want to check them out, click on the cake names, Lotus Pudding Cake, Chocolate Biscuit Cake with Pudding, Chocolate Cavity cake with Oreo Pudding, and Pudding cake with Kinder Ganache.

I usually make this kind of cakes in a center raised cake pan, like a tart pan. In this pan, after baking the cake, there will be a cavity in which you can pour ganache or pudding or fruits. I really like this pan. I got mine from Tavola. I have seen this type of pans in Amazon too. If you don’t have this pan, you can still make this cake by frosting the cake with this pudding or by making a cavity in the center of the cake after baking in an 8 inch pan.

Hope you’ll give this recipe a try and will love it as much as we did.
