Tiger Cake

This is a marble cake but in Sweden it’s called tiger cake. Maybe because we live so far away from the tigers, calling it tiger cakes makes our kitchens a little bit more wild and adventurous.


4 eggs

2/3 cups sugar

200 gram butter

1/3 cup cream

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 cup flour

2 tablespoons cacao powder

1 teaspoon vanilla paste


1 Beat eggs and sugar to a white and fluffy mix.

2 Stir in melted butter, cream, baking powder and flour.

3 Take 1/3 of the cake mix and stir in some cacao powder and vanilla paste into the rest of the mix.

4 First pour half of the vanilla mix into a cake tin, then the cacao mix and finish off with the rest of the vanilla mix. Take a fork and drag it through the cake to get the “tiger” lines.

5 Cook in oven 175 degrees for 30-40 minutes.
