Kitchen Stories. Cocoa Cake.

by Cashmere Wrap & Macadamia Nuts

The recipe for Cocoa Cake “runs in my family” and is in the background of many childhood memories, which is not a coincidence, as it is so easy to make that even a busy mother of two found time for baking. Needless to say each and every time to a delightful result.

Cocoa Cake.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 glass of sugar
  • 2 ss. of cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 ts. of cinnamon
  • 4 ss. of strawberry marmalade
  • 1/2 of a margarine or butter stick (counting whole stick as 200 g.)
  • 1 glass of milk
  • 3 glasses of all purpose flour
  • 1 ss. of baking soda
  1. Mix all ingredients together until they form a consistent dough. There is no need to follow any special order, except adding baking soda at the very end.
  2. Pour the dough into a baking form that was greased with butter and sprinkled with breadcrumbs.
  3. Bake the cake at 180 C degrees for around 45 – 50 minutes (or a little longer if needed) until a stick that you spike the cake with is clean when you remove it.

Cocoa Cake can be baked in all forms used as a base for more elaborate cakes, layered with chocolate, cream or marmalade, so this recipe should be treated as a base that even without extras is quite delicious.

Bon appetit!
