Kräsupea – An Estonian Cake That Everybody Loves

Have you ever dreamt of a cake that is fulfilling yet not too fat? Tasty, but not overwhelmingly sweet? After experimenting with some tasty recipes by veganizing them I’ve come up with this tasty, fulfilling cake recipe that originated in Estonia – a traditional Estonian cake veganized! Kräsupea translates as (someone with) curly hair; and it’s a popular cake on children’s birthdays. However I have not met an adult that would not like it! Get ready for a whole lot of awesomeness :) 



- two 750 ml of Alpro soy yoghurt (either plain or with lemon, I prefer lemon)

- 250gr sugar

- 600gr of flour

- 1 tsp of baking powder

- 5 tbspsof cacao

- a tiny bit of dark chocolate (for decorations)


The yoghurt I normally use



Mix about 250ml of soy yoghurt together with sugar, flour and baking powder. You should be getting a nice-smelling, relatively thick dough. Bake about 2/3 of dough for 25 minutes at 180ºC until ready. Take the layer from the baking tray and let it cool. Meanwhile, add cacao to the leftover dough, mix well and bake it in the tray for 25 minutes at 180ºC. Once the while layer is cooled, cut it in small cubes and mix it with the rest of yoghurt. If you like it sweeter, feel free to add extra sugar or vanilla sugar, however I normally don’t add these as the cake turns out yummy, sweet and fulfilling enough without any extra additions. Add the dough-cube and yoghurt mixture onto the cacao layer and let it cool overnight. The next day melt the chocolate and decorate the cake. Enjoy!
