Tiger Cake (Chocolate and Vanilla filling)

I love animals and I do love cakes so why not baking a Swedish Tiger Cake?!! 😀 For all you chocolate lovers out there… this is a cake you must try to bake! You will not become disappointed!!   😀

A tiger can consume up to 40 kg of meat at one time… I do wonder how much tiger cake we need to feed him with to make the tiger satisfied… 😀

Recipe (makes 10-12 slices)


  • 200 gr butter
  • 2 ½ dl caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 dl plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 dl whole milk


  • 2 tablespoons cacao
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla sugar

Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C.

Grease and base line a 1 kg loaf tin or use a round pie plate.

To make the sponge cake, stir the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, and thereafter add the baking powder. Continue to stir until you get a smooth mixture.

Add  the flour and continue to whisk until everything is just incorporated. Then pour the milk into the bowl and whisk it all together. The mixture should be pale and smooth in the end.

Pour 1/3 of the mixture into a bowl and mix it with the cacao.

Flavour the rest of the mixture with vanilla sugar.

Pour half of the light mixture into the pie plate.

Thereafter the dark mixture and finally the light one again.

Drag a fork through the cake mixture to get a marbled appearance.

Bake the cake at the bottom of the oven for about 45 minutes.

Allow to cool before you take the cake out from the pie plate.

Cut it into 10-12 slices.

How many of these do you think a tiger needs to become satisfied?!

Happy Tiger Baking! 😀
