Hetty’s May Cake


Hey everyone!

It’s Friday, and what’s more perfect than a good chocolate cake to celebrate the weekend is finally here again? This is my all-time favorite chocolate cake. I’m going, to be honest, and say that I’ve never baked this cake myself, my mom always makes it for my birthday every year. But I will be learning how to bake it soon, and according to my mom, it’s pretty easy to make. I’ve posted this recipe before but are now reposting it as requested. I hope all of you love this recipe as much as my family and I do.


1 Cup  Butter

1 Cup Granulated sugar

3 Eggs

1 Cup All-purpose flour

0,5 cup Cocoa powder

2 TBS Cornflour

2 Tsp baking powder

1 Tsp vanilla sugar

0,5 Cup whipping cream

1 Cup applesauce


0,5 Cup Applesauce


1/2 Cup Butter

3 TBSP Cocoa powder

2 Cups Powdered sugar( icing sugar)

2 Tsp vanilla sugar

1 Egg



Instructions on how to make my May Cake:

Start by Pre-heat the oven to about 350 degrees. Then mix sugar and butter until smooth. Add one egg at a time, and mix it well together. Add the flour, cornflour, baking powder, Cocoa powder and vanilla sugar and mix it all well together. Then you ad the whipping cream and the applesauce. When you’ve mixed everything well together, pour the mix into a grated baking form that holds about 1  ½ L. Cover it up with baking paper. Bake the cake in the oven for about 45 min. When you take the cake out of the oven put it aside and let it cool down completely.

Melt the butter for the frosting and let it cool. Then add Cocoa powder and vanilla sugar. Whisk one egg together, and add it to the mix. Then whisk it all good together until you have a smooth frosting.

Cut the cake in half, so you end up having two layers.  put one layer of applesauce on the bottom layer of the cake, then add 1/3 of the frosting on top. Gently place the top layer on top and cover the whole cake with the rest of the frosting.

Cut strawberries in half(sideways) and decorate your cake with fresh strawberries. It will look fresh, and tasty. We all know how well Chocolate and Strawberries go together.

I hope all of you have an amazing Friday so far, and I hope to see you back here tomorrow for a new post.
