Chocolate-Mocca pieces (Mokkapalat)

Baking tray with a 3 cm lip

Bake for 15 minutes in 200 C temperature

Ingredients for the cake:

  • 200 g butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 dl sugar
  • 5 dl wheat flour
  • 3 tbsp dark cocoa powder
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tl vanilla sugar
  • 2 dl milk

Ingredients for the icing:

  • 50 g butter
  • 500 g powdered sugar
  • 2 tspb dark cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 1 dl strong coffee


  • Nonpareils, sugar crystals, miniature marshmallows or anything you like

Baking the cake:

  1. Melt the butter in the microwave owen and let it cool.
  2. Mix the eggs and sugar into thick foam.
  3. Combine the dry ingredients and add the mixture into the egg foam alternately with milk.
  4. Add the melted butter into the dough.
  5. Cover a baking tray with a sheet of baking paper and pour the dough on it. Spread it over the baking tray smoothly, e.g. with a silicone scraper.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes in 200 C temperature.
  7. Let the cake cool.

Preparing the icing:

  1. Melt the butter in the microwave owen.
  2. Brew one cup of strong coffee (2 spoons of ground coffee for one cup of coffee)
  3. Combine powdered sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla sugar.
  4. Stir the coffee into the sugar mixture little by little – add coffee only so much that the mixture is smooth. If the mixture is too stiff, very carefully add more coffee. (If you add too much coffee, the mixture turns into liquid-like, and it can only be saved by adding more powdered sugar which you naturally don’t have any left.)
  5. Mix the melted butter into the sugar mixture.
  6. Spread the icing quickly over the cake – it stiffens fast!
  7. Decorate with nonpareils, sugar crystals, miniature marshmallows or anything you like.

Tip: if you don’t care for the icing so much, make only a half portion of it.
