Bicolour cake

A funny two colour cake

Do you like a bit of colour? Then try this double colour cake! This recipe is quite fast, but requires different bowls. You can adjust the ingredients following your own tastes and preferences. Let your mind run free and create your own bicolour cake. If you are up for a challenge you can also try to change the colours by modifying the ingredients :)


  • 250 ml water
  • 190 gr flour
  • 50 gr honey
  • 50 gr oil
  • 25 cocoa powder
  • 100 gr cranberries
  • 10 drops of almond flavour
  • zest of half lemon


  1. Start by mixing flour, baking powder and lemon zest together in a bowl. For the lemon zest, you can use either a lemon powder or you can use a fresh lemon and a grater. To mix the ingredients you can use either an electric whisk or a normal one Image 1 and 2.
  2. Now you can add the liquid ingredients to the mixture meaning the water, the oil and the honey. Whisk everything together until the ingredients are well blended and reach a creamy consistency.
  3. At this point you need to transfer half of the mixture in another bowl. A spatula can be useful in this step.
  4. In one bowl proceed with adding the cocoa powder and mix together. You might need a bit of water to incorporate the cocoa powder in the mixture Image 3 and 4.
  5. In the other bowl add the cranberries and the almond flavour. Mix again these ingredients until they are blended together Image 5.
  6. Now you have two different dough mixture one with chocolate and one with cranberries. Take a baking tray either round or square. Start by pouring inside the tray part of the chocolate mixture. Then on top of that pour the cranberries mixture. Continue with this process until you finish both mixtures and you obtain a mixed pattern Image 6.
  7. At this point you can put the baking tray in the oven at 180°C for 30 minutes Image 7.
  8. Once the cake is cooked you can serve it with marmalade or whipped cream.


  • It goes without saying that you can replace many different ingredients with the one you like better in this recipe. For example, you can replace the honey with sugar, or aloe syrup. You can substitute the spelt flour that I used with wheat flour or multi-cereal flour keeping the same doses. Moreover, you can substitute the lemon zest with vanilla, orange zest or other flavours you may like. You can decide not to put the cranberries at all. Just let you creativity run free.
