Famously known as kuivakakku in Finland, is your best option of a cake you want to have alongside a mug of coffee or tea. It is a magnificent tease to the taste buds and the flavors can be manipulated as well to individual preference. My top most flavor is the lemon one where lemon juice from one half of a lemon is added to the cake mix. Hmmnn…. 50 shades of delish! But without further ado, let’s get into this one.

Drycake recipe video up on my YouTube channel (Joana’s Diary)


1.Margarine or Butter 160g

2.Sugar 2.5dl

3.Cake flour 3dl

4. Cocoa powder 4tsp—optional

5. Cream 1dl

6. Baking powder 1tsp

7. Vanilla sugar 1tsp.


Before you begin, set your oven at 170 degrees and get your baking pan ready by smearing the inside of it with margarine, butter or oil. Then sprinkle bread crumbs or flour into the pan to avoid making an oily mess.

Measure out the dry ingredients into a bowl. Cake flour, baking powder and cocoa powder if you choose to use it.

In a separate bowl add your molten margarine or butter. To it add your 2.5 dl of sugar and with a mixer beat to a smooth foamy consistency.

Add to that 2 eggs at room temperature and mix them in.

Add 1 dl of cream and mix for a minute or so.

To this you will now add your already measured out dry ingredients. Do not however add everything at the same time. Take instead a spoon and add one scoop at a time. Mix on the go.

Now that your have everything mixed in, its at this point that you transfer your cake mixture from your mixing bowl to the already well oiled baking pan.

You can now put your pan into the oven and let it bake for 50 to 60 minutes.

Attached above is the video illustration of this particular cake you can check out from YouTube.
