Coffee Bliss Cake with Creamy Labneh Sauce


  • For the cake:
  • 120 grams of butter
  • Slightly less than half a cup of vegetable oil (75 ml)
  • 1.5 cups of sugar (260 grams - mixed brown and white)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 box of cream (200 ml)
  • Half a cup of milk (100 ml)
  • 2.5 cups of all-purpose flour (270 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch (30 grams)
  • 1 packet of vanilla sugar
  • 1 packet of baking powder
  • A pinch of baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons of granulated coffee
  • Quarter cup of hot water (60 ml)
  • For the sauce:
  • 500 ml of milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of cornstarch (20 grams)
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of flour (20 grams)
  • Half a cup of sugar (85 grams)
  • 200 grams of labneh



Dissolve the coffee in hot water and set aside. Beat the butter and sugar until creamy. (If you like it more intense, add a teaspoon of coffee at this stage.) Add the vegetable oil and mix, then add the egg yolks and beat. Add the cream. Once well mixed, add the dry ingredients and mix slowly until combined. Add the milk and coffee and stir. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold them into the mixture in two batches. Pour into a greased pan and bake in a preheated oven at 175 degrees Celsius. Baking time may vary depending on the pan; mine took around 45-50 minutes.


In a saucepan, combine sugar, flour, and cornstarch. Mix, then add the egg yolks. Gradually add the milk while stirring constantly. Cook over medium heat until it thickens like pudding. Remove from heat, add the vanilla, and mix. Transfer to another bowl and let it cool, stirring occasionally. Once it reaches room temperature, add the strained labneh and mix well. Adjust the amount according to taste and consistency. Once cooled in the refrigerator, pour the sauce over the cake and sprinkle with cocoa. Ready to serve! 😋

It's best to refrigerate the cake after pouring the sauce. If you prefer, you can pour the sauce just before serving while keeping the cake at room temperature. Enjoy! 🍰
