Granola Cake

I made Granola Cake from Baking Chez Moi along with Dorie Greenspan's famous World Peace Cookies for our New Years Eve dinner.

I used home made granola, Dorie's recipe, and white chocolate.

The batter was delicious, but I found the baked cake to be too sweet for my taste.  I am about to bake the cake again using a less sweet home made granola and bittersweet chocolate.  This time I will shorten the baking time slightly as my first cake was a tiny bit dry, but still very edible.

This cake is very easy to make and I will enjoy tinkering with the ingredients until I find the perfect version for my household's taste.


  1. Sounds like you had a delicious New Year's Eve. I will keep in mind the sweetness when making this cake.

  2. So interesting, I felt like mine needed more time in the oven as it was quite wet still! I guess a lot depends on the type of granola you use? I, too, will enjoy tinkering with different versions of this!

  3. I used unsweetened muesli and coconut, along with 80% chocolate, so mine wasn't too sweet. I did shorten the baking time a bit. I think my unsweetened ingredients had a bit less moisture than sweetened ones would have done, so it baked faster.

  4. I reduced both sugars, taking into account of the slightly sweetened granola and the sweetened coconut. Even with the reduction in sugar, I still find it a little sweet. But this makes a nice cake for snacking!
