For Joe's birthday I decided to make him a brick cake. Unfortunately, I don't know how to make brick cake and I've only had one bite of this cake in my whole life. After an exhaustive internet search I decided upon the following recipe.
Kiksekage – Danish Biscuit Cake
1 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup powdered sugar
8 oz. 70% chocolate
7 tbsp salted butter
7 oz biscuits
Line a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with plastic wrap or foil.
Combine whipping cream and powdered sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Slowly pour the hot cream mixture over the chopped chocolate. Stir the mixture until shiny and smooth. Let cool for 5 minutes. Cut butter into small pieces and add to chocolate mix, stir until completely melted. Place mixture in refrigerator for 10 minutes to cool.
Cover bottom of loaf pan with chocolate, then place a layer of biscuits, repeat chocolate, biscuit, ending with a layer of chocolate. Cover the top of chocolate with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator overnight.
