All the energy of ginseng and plenty of taste with this simple, quick and delicious recipe!!! All you need is a cake pan with a diameter of 20-22 cm and a whisk.
Did you turn on the oven already? Go!



  • 300 gr of 00 flour
  • 150 gr of caster sugar
  • 1 glass of peanut oil
  • 50 gr of bitter cocoa
  • 50 gr of sweetened cocoa
  • 1 sachet of vanillin
  • 1 sachet of baking powder
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 4 cups of soluble ginseng (i.e. 4 coffee cups); you can choose from here 
  • 1 pinch of salt


  1. To make your ginseng cake, put all the “powder” ingredients into a bowl, so the flour, cocoa, sugar, salt, baking powder and vanillin, and mix them with a spoon.
  2. Pour the oil, mixing well with the whisk, add the eggs and continue to mix; at this stage, you will have to put in a little effort because the mixture is not yet soft.
  3. But don’t worry, because now it’s time to pour the 4 cups of hot ginseng coffee that you will choose according to your taste and according to the machine with which you’re preparing it.
  4. Pour the ginseng into the bowl while it is still hot and mix well with the whisk. Now the dough will be nice and soft!
  5. At this point, pour this mixture into the cake pan and place in the oven (pre-heated) at 180°C for 50 minutes.
  6. Before finally removing from the oven, do the toothpick test, as always: insert a toothpick into the cake, and if it comes out dry, this means that the cake is well cooked (if not, leave it in the oven for a few more minutes).
  7. Once your ginseng cake is baked, let it cool, then remove it from the pan and place it on a cake plate.
  8. If you want to add a creative touch, sprinkle some icing sugar on top: you can use stencils to create shapes, or a simple strainer to create a smooth effect on the cake.

It’s great for everyone, especially when you want something that would satisfy your craving for good, wholesome and energetic food!
