Bird's Milk Cake recipe

The bird's milk cake, also known as ptichie moloko cake, is a cake that originated in Russia and is one of the most popular cakes there. It appears to be the first Russian cake to receive a patent, and it was created by a group of confectioners led by Vladimir Guralnik.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 3 eggs
  • 125 gr. of pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 125 gr. of sugar
  • 50 gr. of cocoa powder
  • 30 gr. of butter


    1. The first step will be to make the cake. Preheat the oven to 180o C for this.
    2. Sift the flour, cocoa, and baking powder into a bowl and set aside.
    3. We used electric rods to beat the eggs and sugar together until they tripled in volume.
    4. Meanwhile, completely melt the butter in the microwave (or on the fire).
    5. Pour the melted butter into the egg-sugar mixture, being careful not to let it settle.
    6. We use a silicone tongue to incorporate the sifted dry ingredients (flour, cocoa, and yeast) little by little with enveloping movements.
    7. The mixture will be quite dense.
    8. We grease the base of a 20 cm removable mold with release spray and cover it with greaseproof paper. We pour the mixture into the pan and spread it evenly with a spatula.
    9. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
    10. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack to cool completely.
