Keep on reading, because today you’re going to learn how to bake one of the edible staples, a space cake, at home!
What's A Space Cake?
Space cakes have entered the world through the doors of Dutch bakeries and coffeeshops filled with aromas of cannabis and freshly baked cakes. Where the name of this dessert comes from still remains a mystery. However, you can be sure, a good piece of a weed infused cake can get you so high you’ll be floating along the Earth’s orbit. Basically, space cake is any cake of your preference where a portion of butter or milk is substituted for weed butter or weed milk.

Making Space Cake Step-By-Step
Despite the name, making a space cake from scratch is not a rocket science in any sense. However, when baking, it’s best to follow the measurements precisely for best results.
Step 1: Mix Butters, Salt And Sugar
Start by preheating your oven to 360 F (180 C) and combining soft (but not melted) butter and cannabutter with sugar in a medium bowl. Add a pinch of salt. Beat these ingredients with a whisk or a mixer on medium speed until the butter becomes white, light and airy in texture.
Step 2: Add Wet ingredients
Add 2 eggs to the butter and sugar mix and keep beating until well combined. Pour room temperature milk in and mix until it is fully incorporated into the mixture.
Step 3: Finish The Batter
Continue to mix and gradually sift the flour together with baking powder into the batter. After all of the flour and baking powder is in, mix until smooth - don’t overwork the batter. Otherwise, the space cake won’t be as soft and moist as it can be. Finally, with a couple of extra hand movements fold in any of the desired additives, be it chocolate chips, nuts or berries.
Step 4: Bake!
Line your cake pan with a piece of parchment paper, brush the sides with oil or butter and dust with a pinch of flour - this way the cake will be extremely easy to release from the pan after it’s done. Pour the batter into the pan and bake it for approximately 25 minutes. It can take shorter or longer depending on your oven. We suggest doing a toothpick test every 5-10 minutes after the cake has been in the oven for 20 minutes - simply prick the middle of the cake with a toothpick, and if it comes out clean your space cake is ready. Let it cool down for at least half an hour before serving.
To Enjoy Space Cake Effect, Be Aware Of The THC Dose Per Portion
Now, when your wonderful space cake is ready, it’s important to remember how to dose edibles. Why, you may ask. Even though a piece of weed cake may seem like a harmless sugary dessert, it can also be extremely potent - if you eat too much, the space cake effect won’t be as pleasant as you would hope and can lead to nausea and anxiety. A common dose of THC for edibles is 15 to 20 mg per portion. If you use our recipe for cannabutter, then you can be sure that this space cake recipe will make 14-18 portions of 19-15 mg THC respectively. You can always increase or reduce the amount of regular butter in the recipe to tweak the dosage. Just make sure to check your calculations twice.
