This Brazilian chocolate cake with strawberries is very common in Brazil and is very easy to make. Never fails to impress. It’s based on a chocolate by the name of Prestigio, the correspondent bar of chocolate in the USA is Bounty. For the chocolate glaze you are going to use the same brigadeiro recipe that we used for the carrot cake. Remember it?? This cake is decadent, rich and delicious cake that my grandma has made countless times for so many years, especially for our birthday parties.

Recipe type: Cake
Cuisine: Brazilian
Serves: 6
  • Cake
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup oil
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of good quality cocoa powder (we used Ghirardelli)
  • 2 cups of unbleached flour
  • 1 soup spoon of baking soda
  • Coconut cream
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 200 grams shaved coconut (unseeweted)
  • ½ can of coconut milk
  • Mix everything and let it cook for 5 minutes on medium heat or until thickened..
  • Chocolate glaze
  • Brigadeiro recipe here.
  • You will need to make the glaze a little thinner because you are going to spread it over the cake.
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Butter and flour a 9 inch cake pan and set aside.
  3. Combine chocolate powder, flour and baking soda in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  4. In a kitchenaid mixer, combine eggs, oil, milk and sugar until smooth.
  5. Slowly add in the cocoa/flour mixture and combine well.
  6. Pour into the cake pan and cook until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, approximately 40-45 minutes.
  7. Let cool on a wire rack before cutting.
  8. To assemble the cake
  9. Cut the cake with a bread knife through the middle so you have two thinner cake rounds.
  10. Use the rest of the coconut milk to make the cake "wet" on the bottom and the top.
  11. Spread the coconut cream on half of the cake. (make a nice thick layer).
  12. Put the top of the cake on and spread the brigadeiro glaze over.
  13. To make this cake more delicious, cut some strawberries



Now is the best part because I can see you licking the spoon!! lol That’s alright!! It’s a traditional thing to do when you make brigadeiro. Add chocolate sprinkles!


If you have any questions, please, let us know! We will be delighted to answer them. And if you like this post, don’t forget to like us on Facebook.

Just grab a nice, hot strong Brazilian coffee or a nice full bodied cabernet and enjoy it!!! Have a great weekend!

    I’m trying to recreate a Brazilian Chocolate Cake for a friend’s birthday. I have a couple of questions: (1) the 1 cup of chocolate in the cake recipe, is it unsweetened cocoa powder, or chopped or melted baking chocolate? And (2) how much would you guess a soup spoon is in teaspoons/tablespoons or grams? I have three sets of flatware and the soup spoons are all different sizes.

    • Hello Eleanor,
      The measures are always complicated… Answer for the first question: It’s unsweetened cocoa powder and for the second, 1 heaping tablespoon. If you have any questions, please, let us know!! You will LOVE the brigadeiro sauce.

    I am trying to make this cake for our Brazilian exchange student. I just compared it to another recipe on a different website. I have 3 questions: How long do I beat the batter, with what do I beat the batter, and do I use a spring form pan or regular cake pan?

    I am using a whisk, but just realized I may want to use an electric mixer. Thank you!

    • Hi There!!
      How excited to have a Brazilian exchange student in your house!! You can beat the batter until you see that the batter is smooth and we used a kitchen aid mixer its way easier and fast. You can use any pan you want, just make sure to use a deep one, if not you would not be able to taste the cake and it would be too sweet your cake!! Good Luck!! If you have any question let us know!
