  • 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 300-350 grams (2.5-3 cups) all-purpose flour

For the Cream

  • 200 grams (1 cup) unsalted butter
  • 1 can dulce de leche
  • 2 tablespoons cognac
  • 200 grams (1 cup) cream cheese
  • 200 grams (2 cups) walnuts

For the Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

For the Syrup

  • 150 milliliters (5 fluid ounces) water
  • 50 grams (3 tablespoons) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cognac


  • Electric Mixer

    An electric mixer will help you achieve that fluffy, well-incorporated batter. Use the whisk attachment for whipping eggs and sugar.

  • Baking Sheet

    Choose a durable baking sheet to ensure even baking. Line it with parchment paper to prevent sticking.

  • Microwave-Safe Bowl

    A glass or ceramic bowl is ideal for melting chocolate in the microwave.

  • Blender

    A blender will make quick work of crushing those walnuts to the perfect consistency.

  • Offset Spatula

    This will help you spread the cream evenly between the cake layers and on top.


Step 1

Preparing the Sponge Cake

Beat the eggs with the sugar until fluffy. Add the oil and honey, mix well.
Combine the flour with the baking powder and gradually add to the egg mixture at a lower speed.
Pour the batter onto a baking sheet and bake at 180°C (350°F) for 15-20 minutes.
Remove the cake from the oven and split it in half. Cut each half lengthwise to make 4 thin layers.

Step 2

Making the Cream

Whip the butter until it turns white. Add the dulce de leche and cold cream cheese, beating until smooth.
Crush the walnuts with a blender, then mix into the cream, reserving some for decoration.

Step 3

Preparing the Glaze

Melt the chocolate with the vegetable oil in the microwave, using short bursts.

🎉 Celebration Time:

This cake is perfect for a birthday party, anniversary, or any big celebration. Garnish it with extra walnuts or even edible flowers for a touch of elegance.

Tea Time Delight:

Pair a slice of this delicious cake with a cup of tea or coffee for an afternoon pick-me-up. The nutty, creamy flavors complement warm beverages perfectly. ☕

🍨 Decadent Dessert:

For an extra indulgent treat, top each slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

🍓 Fresh and Fruity:

Serve with fresh berries on the side for a light, refreshing touch. The tartness of the berries will balance the sweetness of the cake beautifully.


🌾 Gluten-Free Option:

Swap out the all-purpose flour for a gluten-free baking mix. Ensure your baking powder is gluten-free too. You’ll still get a deliciously moist and fluffy sponge!

🌱 Vegan Option:

Replace eggs with a combination of flaxseed meal and water, and use a vegan butter substitute and dairy-free cream cheese. Opt for a dairy-free chocolate for the glaze. The result is a cake that’s just as delightful and suitable for a plant-based diet!


  • Why did my sponge cake turn out dense?

    This could be due to over-mixing the batter or not incorporating enough air while beating the eggs and sugar. Always mix gently after adding the flour to keep the texture light and airy.

  • Can I make the cake layers in advance?

    Absolutely! You can bake the sponge layers a day ahead. Just wrap them tightly in plastic wrap to keep them moist.

  • How do I prevent my cream from becoming too runny?

    Ensure your butter and cream cheese are cold before mixing. This will help achieve that perfect creamy consistency.

  • What’s the best way to crush walnuts?

    Using a blender or a food processor will give you finely crushed walnuts. You can also place them in a zip-lock bag and crush with a rolling pin for a coarser texture.

  • How can I make the glaze shinier?

    Adding a bit of corn syrup or liquid glucose when melting the chocolate can add extra gloss to your glaze. Just a teaspoon will do!

  • What are some advanced decorating tips?

    Consider using a piping bag to create elegant swirls or flowers with the cream. You can also use a cake comb to create professional-looking ridges on the sides of your cake.
