This is a little forgotten recipe for an excellent cake, tasty and quick to prepare. Doesn't require much material nor time. Looks great and tastes great! The pyramid cake!

  • 300 g biscuit (the best are Petite beurre about 40 biscuits)
  • 800 ml of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 3 tablespoons of starch
  • 1 cup of sugar (cup size is 200 ml)
  • 1 tbsp butter or margarine
  • 2 teaspoons of cocoa
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 cup of ground nuts
  1. Put flour, cocoa, starch and sugar in a pot and mix. Gradually add the milk and stir all the time until you get a mixture without clumps. Put the pot on the stove, heat it until it starts boiling stirring all the time. When it starts to boil, add a butter or margarine and cook for a few more minutes.
  2. On a plastic or aluminium foil, arrange three rows of biscuits (length as desired, the picture is 3 × 4 biscuits). Apply a hot filling on biscuits, then add a biscuit layer, then filling. The third row of biscuits are aligned only at the ends, and in the middle you put bananas. The fourth row of biscuits and filling is also applied only at the ends. Leave some of the filling for coating the cake above.
  3. Gently lift one end of the cake together with the foil and then do the same with the opposite side. Connect both sides to form a pyramid shape, tighten the foil well, tie or fasten with rubber at the ends and cool in the fridge for a few hours.
  4. Remove the cooled cake from the fridge, remove the foil and apply the remaining filling previously warmed up. Sprinkle chopped nuts on top.
