I’ve only been in Germany once and just for 4 days, in Berlin. I had a lot of plans and expectations before getting there. Unfortunately, my experiences did not live up to my expectations. Perhaps, it is an excuse to visit again, who knows?However, while there, I did try some of the yummy food that was on my list, and that made me really happy!

If you know me, you know I'm not a sweet-tooth, and actually there are not that many dessert recipes in the site. So this is pretty much a unicorn-recipe. So let me know if you make it. I surprised myself with it, and how good it turned out.


200 g Butter

180 g Sugar

2 teaspoon Vanilla

1⁄4 tsp Salt

3 Eggs

10 tablespoon of Milk

200 g Flour

21⁄2 teaspoon Baking Soda

60 g Cacao Powder

50 g Chocolate Chips

100 g Dark Chocolate Bar

Butter (for greasing)

Flour (for dusting)


  1. Preheat oven to 175°C. Grease a bread-loaf shape baking dish and flour. Beat butter, brown sugar, vanilla sugar and salt in a large bowl until frothy. Add one egg at a time and pour the milk into the bowl while stirring.

  2. In another bowl, mix flour, baking powder and cacao powder. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid ones and mix together gently. Gently stir in chocolate chips.

  3. Add the mix into the baking dish and smooth the surface with a rubber spatula. In a preheated oven at 175°C for approx. Bake for 60 minutes. Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool for 30 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, melt the dark chocolate bar in a bowl over a water bath.

  5. Once the cake has cooled down, remove it from the baking dish and cover the melted chocolate bar evenly on it.


  1. Not traditional, but I cut layers and spreader strawberry marmalade in between, garnished with fresh strawberries.
