How To Make The Best Space Cakes: The best Cannabis Recipe
There is nothing quite as sumptuous as well prepared space cake, combining a love for good food and good weed. So here is how you make one.
A space cake is as awesome as it sounds. Imagine your favourite cake, but infused with the unbridled and buzzing power of cannabis! Pretty much ever coffeeshop in Amsterdam will offer space cakes in one form or another, and they have become increasingly popular with those who want to reach that high, but in a discreet and tasty manner.
With this in mind, we have put together an out-of-this-world space cake recipe so that you can make your very own.
YOU WILL NEED:
- 8 grams of cannabis bud, or the equivalent strength in either cuttings or hash.
- 1 ¾ cups of flour
- 1 cup of non-salted butter
- 1 cup of granulated sugar
- ¾ cup of milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 ¾ teaspoons of baking powder
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- Any other ingredients you want to improve the cake with, such as cocoa powder, vanilla extract, dried fruit, icing/frosting, buttercream, chocolate chips, or anything else – your imagination is your only limit.
- A grinder
- A mixing bowl
- Spatula or mixing spoon
- A cake oven tin
- Non-stick spray or lining paper
- An oven
- A microwave
- A small bowl
- A skewer
- Optional: A wire rack
- Preheat your oven to somewhere between 104°C and 113°C. Place your weed (grinded) in an oven safe container. Heat it in the oven for 30–40 minutes. This will decarboxylate your weed, meaning that all cannabinoids become bioavailable.
- Pre-heat your oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
- Put your butter in a bowl and place it in the microwave for 20 seconds. You want it to melt into a gloopy, pasty consistency.
- Mix your freshly ground up cannabis into the butter.
- Add all of the sugar, flour, milk, cannabis butter, eggs, plus anything else you want to your mixing bowl. Mix everything together until you get a batter with a nice even consistency. This may take a few minutes, but it will ensure your cannabis is spread evenly as possible throughout the cake mix. Note: if the mix is a little bit too dry, add a splash of extra milk; if it is too wet, add some extra flour.
- Grease your cake tin with non-stick spray, or line it with non-stick baking paper.
- Carefully pour your cake batter into the tin, spreading it around so that it is evenly distributed.
- Place your tin in the oven and leave for 25 minutes to bake.
- After 25 minutes, stab the centre of the cake with a skewer. If it comes out clean, it is ready, if batter sticks to it, leave the cake in the oven for another 5 minutes.
- Allow the cake to cool for about 20 minutes in the tin; then place it upside down on the wire rack and remove the tin, allowing it to cool for a further 30 minutes.
- Once cooled, decorate the cake with anything you want.
There you have it, a super easy way to make an irresistible space cake – anyone should be able to make it, and the versatility means you can make all kinds of awesome and tantalising flavours. Just remember to enjoy responsibly and let anyone you share it with known what’s in it. You will be on your way to the outer reaches of bliss in no time at all! (allow 45-90 minutes for digestion!)

How to make marijuana cake in 7 steps
marijuana cake in 7 steps
Making a sponge cake is one of the easiest things in the world, and also the funniest, if we add a little marijuana, but always keeping in mind that eating and smoking marijuana have very different effects.
Shall we make a marijuana cake?
Today, I woke up looking forward doing something special in the kitchen, and told myself: “I’m going to prepare something easy and funny” and… Is there anything better than a marijuana sponge cake?… spending very little time in the kitchen, you can enjoy after, for a while, a delicious cannabic candy. ??
And that is precisely the secret of one of humanity’s oldest desserts, the sponge cake, or “bizcocho”, as it is called in some Spanish-speaking places, has lasted for so many years or, rather, centuries.
Yes, yes, yes! I am not stoned yet! I have said well, CENTURIES, because the first data, according to historians and curious gastronomists, the sponge cakes, which evidently were made without marijuana, date back to the tenth century BC.
The sponge cake was one of the soldiers’ staple foods, as this type of food lasted longer.
Nowadays the recipe has been simplified so much (although it is still so rich) that it is usually one of the first recipes, or maybe the first recipe that children make. So if they can do it… you and me too! So, then, What do you say? Do you wanna join us?…Well, let’s get to work!!???
👾 Ingredients and material for making a marijuana cake
Unless you’re a real mess, I bet you that everything I am gonna ask for you to make a marijuana cake is already available at you home, Isn’t it? Take a note and then you tell me:✍️
- 1 plain yogurt
- Sugar (2 glasses, you may use the yogurt glass)
- Flour (3 glasses measured with the yogurt glass)
- 3 eggs
- 1 packet of yeast
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 glass of previously melted cannabis butter (about 80 grams)
- 5 to 8 grams of marijuana buds
Ingredients for making a marijuana cake
This is a first option if you have already made marijuana butter, but if it is not your case, you can also choose to use normal butter, without salt, and add the marijuana later. In any case, the recipe hardly varies, although it’s true that the second option is softer than the first one and, perhaps, the most recommendable if it’s the first time that you or any of your guests try marijuana sponge cake.
As for which type of marijuana choose to make a cake, the truth is that the range is very wide, but among others, I recommend the CBD Nebula II, a true delight for the most gourmet palates, whose buds, completely covered with resin, make it ideal for cooking.
Nebula II CBD has a ratio THC: CBD close to 1:1. With 7% CBD and 6% THC, this gene can be used for therapeutic purposes and produce a balanced and relaxing effect…
Of course, you know that sponge cake, besides being very easy to make, also has the advantage that you can add almost everything: nuts, chocolate, fruit... Gives us a wide range of possibilitiesl! I, as I have a sweet tooth, have thought that today I am going to prepare a chocolate marijuana cake, so using the ingredients above, I will add chocolate to melt. You’re gonna lick your fingers like you did when you were a kid!!?
And, well, don’t forget to take notes about the stuff you need:
- 1 bowl
- 1 spatula
- 1 baking pan
- 1 knifebaking paper (if you don’t have any, and there is butter or flour left over, also serves you)
- 1 casserole dish
- 1 grinder
- 1 mixer (optional)
And now that you’ve got it all, leave the paper and pen down, and change it for an apron! let’s get started!

🎬 Recipe for marijuana sponge cake step by step
1-As this recipe is very easy and quick to make, the first step is to start the oven and pre-heat it to 180 degrees, so when we finish our mixture, will be ready to start baking.
pre-heat oven to 180 degrees
2-Secondly, we will melt the butter in the microwave oven (either regular or cannabis butter) for about 10-20 seconds, depending on the power of your device. If you’ve decided to make chocolate cake, like me, cut the ounces with your hand and pour them into a casserole, when it’s already a little hot. Remember to keep the temperature low so it doesn’t burn. If you want, you can also add some milk.

3-As the chocolate melts, you can move on to the third step of mixing the remaining ingredients: yogurt, eggs, flour, sugar and pinch of salt and stir it until you get a smooth dough, with no lumps. TIP: If you want to go even faster, you can pass it all through the blender.
mix the remaining ingredients: yogurt, eggs, flour, sugar and pinch of salt
4-Next we will pour the butter, the marijuana buds that we will have crushed with the grinder, and the chocolate. We do the same mixing operation, either with a spatula or a blender (seriously, I think the second one is the best, even if the kitchen gourmets want to kill me).

5-Another option, especially if we use normal butter, is to melt it in a saucepan and when half melted, mix it with the crushed marijuana buds.

6-And, all right!…we’ve got our dough ready to use! Now just put the baking paper in the mould we have chosen to bake our biscuit, or spread butter o flour over the edges and bake it in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
7-When this time elapses, to know if It’s ready, it will suffice to insert the tip of a spatula, if it comes out clean you can afirm that it’s ready, otherwise, we will have to wait a little, but watching that we do not overcook or burn the top of the cake, which happens to many people. A normal mistake for beginners that sometimes happen to any of us!
🎯 Tips before eating a marijuana cake
If you are a loyal fan of this blog, you know it for sure: smoking marijuana is not the same as eating it. In the first case you get stoned faster, but its effects last less. On the other hand, if you consume marijuana edibles (intake), the effects take a long time to be noticed (they can take from 30 minutes to 2 hours, it depends on the entire food intake at a time), but the duration of the high is prolonged during more time.
So if you think it does not give you a good high, wait a little longer, because you might get scared later if you are over dosing yourself, eating more marijuana sponge cake than you realize.Start by half or one serving, then, let it act for a while. Also, if you have to work later, to drive your car or, in short, to do something that means keeping all your senses alert, be very careful of when and how much marijuana cake you’ve eaten, since THC dosage, is now running through your veins.
On the other hand, eating marijuana sponge cake may be funny, and even someone could feel like drinking wine or other types of alcohol, but it is not recommended, so I advise to change it for a juice, water, coffee, tea, milk… which, in addition, it suits much more than a glass of wine.
