  • Butter for greasing
  • Refined flour for dusting
  • 500 grams vanilla/ white cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 flax eggs or 3 tbsps flax seed powder + 9tbsps water (egg substitute)
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tsps instant coffee powder
Coffee Syrup:
  • ¼ cup coffee
  • 1 tbsp coffee flavoured liqueur
Cheese Filling:
  • 200 grams mascarpone cheese
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsps coffee flavoured liqueur
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsps coffee flavoured liqueur
  • 2 tbsps unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 30 grams semi-sweet chocolate slab


  1. For the cake, preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease three 9-inch baking tins with butter and line them with flour.
  2. In a large bowl, beat flax eggs until light and fluffy. Add oil and beat for a minute or until well incorporated. Add flour, instant coffee, and water, and mix well. Pour the batter equally into the three prepared cake tins.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cakes comes out clean. Remove them from the oven and let the cakes cool in the baking tins for 10 minutes. Then, remove them from the tins and cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. For the syrup, combine coffee and coffee liqueur in a small bowl and set it aside.
  5. For the cheese filling, blend mascarpone, sugar, and coffee liqueur in a medium bowl until smooth. Cover and refrigerate to keep it cool (Do not over blend it, or else the cheese will curdle).
  6. For the frosting, mix cream, sugar and coffee liqueur in a medium bowl until stiff peaks form. Cover and refrigerate to keep it cool.
  7. For assembling, place one part of the cake on a serving plate. Drizzle a portion of the prepared coffee syrup over it. Add a portion of the cheese filling on top and spread it evenly. Repeat this process with the other cakes.
  8. For garnish, create a pattern on the cake using a fork or knife. Dust cocoa powder on the top through a sieve. Shave the chocolate slab and garnish it on top of the cocoa powder.
  9. Chill the cake in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.
