 Cocoa pound cake


3 eggs

150g sugar

200g flour

1/2 sachet baking powder

1/2 sachet vanilla sugar

100g (melted) butter

125ml milk

+25g cocoa


We’re going through difficult times and it’s cold, so a sweet treat means joy. That’s why I decided to try Vero’s recipe, after trying out her delicious Romanian brownie recipe.

It’s true, I added less sugar and replaced the oil with butter and I did half the amounts, needed for a pound cake baking pan of 30x10 cm.


It is a fast-made dessert, as follows—

Beat the eggs with the sugar, which is added bit by bit. Using a wooden spoon, gently stir in the flour, the baking powder, the vanilla sugar (if you wish to add more spices, do so), the melted butter, and the milk.

The pound cake batter

Pour two-thirds of the batter into the baking pan and mix in the cocoa with the other third. I used my cake tester to create a nice shape after pouring the darker batter into the baking pan (but you can also use a fork).

The pound cake: ready for the oven

Bake at 200°C, for 30 minutes, in the baking pan lined with baking parchment.


I munched the fluffy slices alongside a Romanian Aronia juice. ♥
