    • 6 eggs,
    • 1.5 cups of sugar,
    • 1.5 cups of wheat flour,
    • 1.5 cups of potato flour,
    • 1 teaspoon of baking powder,
    • 1 margarine (250g/8.75 oz),
    • 3-5 tablespoons of cocoa.


    1. Whisk the eggs together with the sugar (so as to make a Kogel-mogel).

    2. Mix the wheat flour with the potato one. Then add baking powder. 

    3. Add mixed flour with eggs and sugar. 

    4. Melt margarine – do not cook.

    5. Add slowly the hot margarine into the mixture.

    6. You can also add cocoa. Then, add cocoa to 1/5 of the mixture and stir until a sticky dough. 

    7. Then add it to the remaining dough. 

    8. Put the dough into a pie dish.

    9. Place the pie dish in a preheated oven to 180 C degrees/356 F degrees, and bake for about 45-55 minutes.

    10. After cooling, if you’d like to, decorate a delicious Easter cake with icing sugar or glaze.
