This delicious cake recipe is one of Nigar's recipes. 
I visited her last weekend. She was very welcoming and kind as always.Thank you my dear friend.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup of regular milk
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp. of cocoa powder
  • 1 packet vanilla sugar
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of regular milk
  • 2 tbsp of all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp. of granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp of butter
  • 8 oz. cool whip

 Preheat the oven to 350F.
Sift flour, cocoa powder, vanilla sugar, and baking powder together in a bowl.
Whisk eggs and sugar in another large mixing bowl until it gets creamy. Gradually add milk, vegetable oil whisking consistently.
Add sifted flour,
cocoa powder,vanilla sugar, and baking powder to the bowl and whisk  thoroughly.
Pour this mixture to a 11" non-stick tart pan and bake it for 25-35 minutes. Check the cake by inserting a toothpick into the center. The toothpick will come out clean when the cake is done.

In a large sauce pan, take flour, milk and for the pudding and whisk. Add 1 cup of milk and turn the heat on high. Stir constantly until it starts to bubble. Turn the heat off. Add butter and sugar and whisk it. Set aside until it is in room temperature. Add cool whip to the pudding and whisk it until it is smooth.

Spread the pudding on to the cooled cake and flatten the surface. Decorate it with some cocoa powder and pistachio.
Take it in the refrigerator at least for an hour before serving.

Looks and sounds delicious! What can be used to replace cool whip since this is not available in my country? Thanks.

•You can skip cool whip if you cannot find it
•You can use whipping cream instead of regular milk and skip 2 tbsp of butter.
I hope it helps.

Salaam, love love your recipes, where can we get vanilla sugar?

Thank you Zahraa...
I get them from Mediterranean food stores. If you cannot find it, just grate some lemon zest instead.

Just saw your comment on what to do if one cannot find vanilla sugar. I was told to keep a vanilla bean (intact) in a jar with some sugar and you will have that vanilla sugar essense! Can be done with both granulated or confectionary sugar (10x)
