This is going to be the shortest intro/recipe ever. I’m currently at the library, taking a break from uni work, snacking on inca berries and drinking tea, and I was thinking – hey I’m really busy but I also need to put this recipe out because everyone needs to know about it. It is delicious, and really easy to make – proven by my brother who helped me with the video making (check it out below)! Also don’t worry, at the end of the post is one fab mixtape to freshen up your life from this weather/never-ending rain.



  • 310g plain flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate soda
  • 100g cocoa powder
  • 380g caster sugar
  • 200ml oil, plus for the tin
  • 200ml black coffee, hot
  • 250ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 500ml whipping cream
  • 500g mascarpone
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar




  1. Preheat the oven to 180C, line the bottom of a 25cm cake tin with baking paper and oil the sides.
  2. Brew coffee.
  3. In a medium bowl, sift the flour with cocoa powder, baking powder and bicarbonate soda.
  4. In a larger bowl, beat the eggs with sugar, vanilla extract and a salt, until you have a foamy mixture.
  5. Add oil, milk and coffee to the egg mixture and stir.
  6. Gradually add in the dry ingredients, mixing until everything is fully combined, and the mixture is smooth.
  7. Pour into a prepared cake tin, and bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  8. After the cake is done, leave it to cool for around 2 hours, because if you slice it warm – it will fall apart.
  9. For the filling, in a large bowl, place mascarpone, whipping cream and sugar, and beat for a couple of minutes, until it is deliciously creamy and there are no larger chunks of the cheese.
  10. Slice the cake in three equal pieces, and spread the filling between them, leaving some of it for coating.

And there you go! It’s really not as difficult as it may seem, and I fully encourage you to make it a s a p as possible. A super good friend of mine made this for her birthday, after trying it at my pre-Christmas gathering, and it was her first bake ever, and apparently it left everyone speechless because it truly is an amazing cake! : )

Dobar tek!
