Cake Dough

  • 1 cup organic sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter room temperature
  • 7 tablespoons milk warm
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda mix with a little splash of white vinegar
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons cacao unsweetened
  • 2 1/2 cups flour

Cake Frosting

  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 8 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 8 oz cool whip or 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (whisked until stiff peak 2-3 minutes)


How to make Chocolate Cake "Spartak"

  • Using a mixer combine sugar with egg and whisk until combined.
  • Whisk in butter & baking soda. After add cacao and flour. Beat until everything is combined. Cover the bowl and place it in the fridge for about 30 min - 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 400F. I like to prepare my parchment paper sheets ahead, so cut parchment paper sheets into desired shape rectangles.
  • Divide dough into 7-9 balls. Roll them out one at a time into a circle. Using a round subject cut a circle using butter knife.
  • Now lets continue, place your rolled out dough in the oven and bake for 2-5 min or until they are ready. When you are done baking all of the cake layers let them cook. After spread cake frosting over each layer.

How to make Cake Frosting:

  • Combine butter, whipping cream, condensed milk, and cream cheese inside the mixing bowl.
  • Wisk all of the ingredients until everything is combined. Spread each cake layer with cake frosting. Decorate with melted chocolate and hazelnuts.



Make sure butter and cream cheese are room temperature when making this cake or whipping up cake frosting. 
Store chocolate cake in airtight container, inside the fridge for up to 3 days.
Make this cake ahead by baking the cake layers one day ahead and frosting it later.
After you assemble the cake with cake frosting and cake garnish, let the cake sit 2 hours - best overnight, before serving.
