Chocolate cake balls

Chocolate cake balls

Every time I bake a cake I end up with some leftover sponge cake that I just can’t throw away, because it hurts my heart to throw away food.

So I make some chocolate cake balls that you can keep in a refrigerator for a few days and treat yourself (and your co-workers) at work… 🙂

Ingredients: (for about 15 90g balls)

  • leftover sponge cake (about 250-300g)
  • 250g digestive cookies (I used one package of gran cereale digestive)
  • 2-4 tbsp dark cocoa powder
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2,5 dl plant milk (oat milk)
  • 0,3 dl rum


  1. Crumble your sponge cake with your fingers in a large bowl.
  2. Mix cookies in a food processor and add the cookie powder to the bowl.
  3. Add all the other ingredients and mix well with a spoon.
  4. Let it cool in refrigerator for about 2 hours.
  5. Make large 90g balls and cover them in coconut.

If you have more time you can make bite size balls 🙂

You can store them in a refrigerator for about 4-6 days, but usually they last for maybe 2 days because they are so good 😉
