Sheet-pan chocolate sponge cake

A classic chocolate sponge cake, baked in a sheet pan and topped with cream cheese frosting and garnished with sprinkles. A really easy and good cake that anyone can bake. It’s a perfect birthday cake, and it can even be baked a day in advance. I’ve just spread the frosting on top, but you could use a piping bag and decorate the cake however you want. You can try other easy classic sheet-pan cakes too, like: Drømmekage, Den du ved nok kage, bedstefars skæg kage and brownie. Enjoy!

Heat the oven to 175 C convection.

In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla sugar and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the oil and the eggs. Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until it becomes an even batter. Whisk in the boiling water a little at a time. Spread the batter evenly in a sheet pan (mine is 30 x 40 cm) lined with baking paper. Bake the cake in the oven for about 30 minutes. Let it cool.


Whisk the butter until soft and fluffy. Add the cream cheese and whisk well together. Mix the cocoa, confectioner’s sugar and vanilla sugar together and whisk it in a little at a time. Finally, add the cream and whisk it into an airy and even frosting.

Spread the frosting over the cooled cake and garnish with sprinkles. Serve immediately or refrigerate until served. Enjoy!
