Fine mascarpone cake

Does it ever happen to you that you buy ingredients and don't know how to use them? I often have this problem with mascarpone or ricotta cheese. Since I got stuck with mascarpone again, I was looking for a cake recipe where I could use it. I ended up finding a great recipe for a mascarpone cake and enriched it with plums, walnuts, and dark chocolate. Since the dough was very airy, the added ingredients fell to the bottom of the cake pan, which gave the cake a great flavour. I’ll definitely keep this recipe.




4 large eggs

180 - 200 g sugar

80 ml vegetable oil

125 g white yoghurt

250 g mascarpone

250 g flour (flour type 50 or spelt flour)

15 g baking powder

a pinch of salt

a teaspoon of cinnamon

a handful of sliced plums

chopped nuts and chocolate





Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees, grease a cake springform pan Ø 26 cm with butter and sprinkle with flour or breadcrumbs.

Beat the eggs and sugar with an electric mixer until foamy. (This may take a few minutes.) Add the oil, yoghurt, and mascarpone and mix in slowly on low speed. Add a teaspoon of cinnamon.



Finally, mix the flour with salt and baking powder and add it to the mixture. Stir the dough until it’s smooth. Fold in the plums, chopped walnuts and chocolate. Pour into the prepared cake pan. Bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes. Use a toothpick to check if the cake is baked through.

Let the cake cool down in the pan for a while, then carefully turn it out onto a wire rack.  Once it has cooled completely, you can sprinkle it with powdered sugar.
