How to Bake the Best Chocolate Vanilla Cake

by C├ęcile Muller


  • 180 gr. sugar
  • 200 gr. butter
  • 200 gr. Raising flower
  • 1 gr. Salt
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Mix the sugar with the butter ( room temperature)

    Step 2

    Should look like this

    Step 3

    Then put 1 egg in at the time. ( egg-> mix -> egg-> mix etc.) IMPORTANT: don't mix too long! 10 sec each egg! Otherwise the eggs won't rise!!!

    Step 4

    Should look like this ( I know it looks disgusting!!)

    Step 5

    Once you're done with the eggs, sieve two teaspoons baking powder over it. Then sieve the 200 gr. raising flower on top! It's very important that you sieve!!

    Step 6

    Step 7

    Add salt and mix the whole thing!

    Step 8

    Should look like this! YUMM

    Step 9

    Then separate it into two bowls. One is for the chocolate and the other one is for the vanilla.

    Step 10

    Add two teaspoons at the left bowl and SIEVE two tablespoons cacao powder in the other bowl!

    Step 11


    Step 12

    Start mixing with the vanilla dough!

    Step 13

    IMPORTANT: flip the cacao powder in the dough! When everything is a bit mixed up you can use the mixer! If you don't flip everything together you get an explosion of cacao powder in your kitchen.

    Step 14

    You can mix now :)

    Step 15

    When everything is mixed you can put it into the cake shape. I put the cacao under the vanilla, but you can do it however you like :)

    Step 16

    This is an optional thing to give your cake a nice twist! But it's a bit hard to explain i will make a little clip for you!

    Step 17

    Sorry, at the end I was busy with my twisting so i forgot to point the camera at my action! Haha hope you understand! ( theory on the next page)

    Step 18

    Theory: take one table spoon, put it all the way to the bottom of your cake. Twist a bit and pull it up again. It will have a great effect on your cake!!

    Step 19

    Before putting it in the oven you have to take a knife and draw a line at the top of your cake. It looks nicer when the cake is done.

    Step 20

    Put your cake in the oven. It variates how long and wich temperature. Every oven is different! Mine 50 minutes on 180 degrees. Only heat from below. Because upper heat will burn my cake.

    Step 21

    You can check after a half hour with a thin knife or whatever is thin and long. Don't open your oven too much! It will ruin your cake! When your knife comes clean out of the cake the cake is done!!

    Step 22

    End result! DELICIOUS!!!!!

    Step 23

    If you have any questions about the guide you can ask me! Hope your cake will be better than any cake you've ever made!!! <3 Goodluck :) xoxo Cecile
