  • for the layer
  • eggs - 6
  • sugar - 1 cup
  • oil - 2/5 cup (100 ml)
  • flour - 1 1/2 cups
  • baking powder - 1 packet
  • for the cream
  • cream cheese - 4 - 5 small packets
  • powdered sugar - 2 cups (500 g)
  • jam - 1 jar, figs
  • for the glaze
  • dark chocolate - 1
  • white chocolate - 1
  • margarine - 2 tbsp, or oil
  • for the syrup
  • water - 2 cups (500 ml)
  • sugar - 2 cups (500 g)
  • vanilla - 2 packets


Beat the eggs with the sugar, until doubled in volume, add the oil, baking powder and beat again, then pour in the flour and stir with a spoon so the mixture doesn't flatten.

Grease a cake form and pour in the mixture, bake at 356°F (180 °C) for about 40 min.

Make the syrup and the cream (beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar with a mixer).

If necessary, add 2-3 tbsp of the cooled syrup, leave it in the fridge to harden.

Divide the layer into 3 separate ones and then stick them together with the cream using syrup. You have to have enough cream for all 3 layers, and after you apply it, smear with fig jam (put some in every corner).

Put the cake in the freezer until it hardens.

In the meantime, melt the chocolates in a water bath with 1 tbsp oil (separately).

When you take the cake out of the freezer, remove the form and form it with a spatula, smooth it out on the top and sides with the cream.

Decorate with the melted chocolate in a checkerboard pattern (use the dark chocolate to make the darker squares).find similar recipes here
