How To Make The Best Space Cakes: The best Cannabis Recipe
There is nothing quite as sumptuous as well prepared space cake, combining a love for good food and good weed. So here is how you make one.
A space cake is as awesome as it sounds. Imagine your favourite cake, but infused with the unbridled and buzzing power of cannabis! Pretty much ever coffeeshop in Amsterdam will offer space cakes in one form or another, and they have become increasingly popular with those who want to reach that high, but in a discreet and tasty manner.
With this in mind, we have put together an out-of-this-world space cake recipe so that you can make your very own.
YOU WILL NEED:
- 8 grams of cannabis bud, or the equivalent strength in either cuttings or hash.
- 1 ¾ cups of flour
- 1 cup of non-salted butter
- 1 cup of granulated sugar
- ¾ cup of milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 ¾ teaspoons of baking powder
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- Any other ingredients you want to improve the cake with, such as cocoa powder, vanilla extract, dried fruit, icing/frosting, buttercream, chocolate chips, or anything else – your imagination is your only limit.
- A grinder
- A mixing bowl
- Spatula or mixing spoon
- A cake oven tin
- Non-stick spray or lining paper
- An oven
- A microwave
- A small bowl
- A skewer
- Optional: A wire rack
- Preheat your oven to somewhere between 104°C and 113°C. Place your weed (grinded) in an oven safe container. Heat it in the oven for 30–40 minutes. This will decarboxylate your weed, meaning that all cannabinoids become bioavailable.
- Pre-heat your oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
- Put your butter in a bowl and place it in the microwave for 20 seconds. You want it to melt into a gloopy, pasty consistency.
- Mix your freshly ground up cannabis into the butter.
- Add all of the sugar, flour, milk, cannabis butter, eggs, plus anything else you want to your mixing bowl. Mix everything together until you get a batter with a nice even consistency. This may take a few minutes, but it will ensure your cannabis is spread evenly as possible throughout the cake mix. Note: if the mix is a little bit too dry, add a splash of extra milk; if it is too wet, add some extra flour.
- Grease your cake tin with non-stick spray, or line it with non-stick baking paper.
- Carefully pour your cake batter into the tin, spreading it around so that it is evenly distributed.
- Place your tin in the oven and leave for 25 minutes to bake.
- After 25 minutes, stab the centre of the cake with a skewer. If it comes out clean, it is ready, if batter sticks to it, leave the cake in the oven for another 5 minutes.
- Allow the cake to cool for about 20 minutes in the tin; then place it upside down on the wire rack and remove the tin, allowing it to cool for a further 30 minutes.
- Once cooled, decorate the cake with anything you want.
There you have it, a super easy way to make an irresistible space cake – anyone should be able to make it, and the versatility means you can make all kinds of awesome and tantalising flavours. Just remember to enjoy responsibly and let anyone you share it with known what’s in it. You will be on your way to the outer reaches of bliss in no time at all! (allow 45-90 minutes for digestion!)

How to make marijuana brownie in just 5 minutes
It is one of the most classic desserts to make with cannabis, but that’s not why they are outdated. Today we give you a simple, easy-to-make pot brownie recipe and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about it.
I’ll confess one thing: Just seeing a chocolate brownie my mouth begins watering…and I can’t help it!?
Chocolate brownie is one of those desserts that goes well at any time of the day and, of course, if it’s well done, it is equally liked by children and adults, by the sweet tooths of sugar and by those who move more for the delicious flavor of cocoa; and of course, the brownie (with marijuana star ingredient) is one of the favorite desserts for marijuana lovers, because its simplicity in the combination of sweet chocolate with our universal medicine.
Thus, it is not surprising that this sweet of American origin is one of the classics among the recipes made with marijuana, and for this reason, today we want to give you one of the hundreds of versions that exist about it.
By the way, did you know that brownie came up by chance in 1987 because the cook forgot to pour yeast while preparing it? Blessed forgetfulness!
⭐ Marijuana Cooking Tips
All right. I had told you that I was going to give you the recipe for Marijuana Brownie, promised, I’ll do it soon, but before that, and if you think it’s okay, I think it’s not superfluous to remember some concepts or aspects to keep in mind, not only for this recipe, but whenever you’re going to cook with marijuana.
Maybe you already know, or maybe it’s the first time you’ve ever got your “hands on”. Whatever your case may be, I’m sure it never hurts to read the following tips for cooking with marijuana again:
–Be meticulous with the amounts of plant: There is not a recommended average dose per person, and the truth is that none of us react in the same way when using cannabis, and you know that the effect between smoking or eating it is very different, mainly because the former is much faster and less durable than the latter.
So, if it’s the first time you’re going to cook and consume it, or someone who’s going to share this brownie with you for the first time, it’s best to go little by little, both in its preparation and at the time of eating it, and wait to see what effect it produces. It usually takes about an hour to take effect, so if you’ve thought about smoking a joint during that time… big mistake!
I Recommend to start with a half gram of marijuana (20% THC) for every 20 g of Brownie if it is in bud form and 2 grams if you use the remains of the manicured buds, but do not use more.
Another thing you have to take into account, if you’re going to accompany this recipe with another one that also contains marijuana, let pass one or two hours between them.
-How to use marijuana: If what you want is that, in addition to eating a delicious brownie, enjoy the effect of cannabis, you have to take into account that for THC has an effect, whenever you mix it with food you will have to mix it and heat it with some fat; the most typical is usually butter, in fact, will be the fat that we use to make this recipe.
Previously, the buds and leaves of marijuana will have to be pulverized in a grinder, and collect the resin stuck with a little extra virgin olive oil, and then mix everything with butter and chocolate.
You can use a grinder to shred your marijuana.
-Control the temperature: The ideal temperature for cooking cannabis in the oven is always the lowest possible. It’s better to cook more slowly, in this way, the cannabis should not lose much of its cannabinoids and terpenes. Cook the Brownie in the oven at 120ºC for a minimum of one hour, until the dough is compact.
–No alcohol: okay, I know it doesn’t sound very good, but if smoked marijuana and alcohol aren’t good companions, they are less so when you eat. So, if you can avoid a bad trip, it would be better doing it.
And if you or one of your guests are in the mood, have a glass of wine and satisfy your desire.
-Be patient: As I’ve told you before, the effect takes a lot longer to reach, but when it does, it stays for a long time, so be patient, and wait for the high.

What about the marijuana brownie smell while it’s being cooked in the oven? The truth is, yes, it smells pretty good. Maybe not as much as when you smoke it, but yes.
When you take it out, unless you’re in a hurry or want to eat it, the ideal thing is to wait for it to cool down a bit so that it doesn’t bad like a pump in your stomach, but if you feel like eating it inmediatly, you can also accompany it with an ice-cream ball, which will make the contrast your stomach needs.
You can accompany brownie with strawberries, as well as cream.
And… you just have to enjoy the trip! Ah! I forgot to tell you! If you want to make a nice presentation, add some almonds cut into small pieces or a little icing sugar. Everything to your taste! There are also people who add even more chocolate, whether in shavings or melted, even some fresh fruit (strawberry, for example, is great), as well as some cream.
✨ Effects of marijuana brownie
In this case, just like when you smoke a joint, it all depends on your physical and psychological state, your body weight, if you drink liquids, and also, of course, the amount of cannabis edibles you have ingested.
We recommend not to take marijuana edibles in case of taking any pharmacological treatment as rifampicin, carbamazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin and St. John’s wort.
That’s why it’s recommended not to take more than one serving or, at least, not to take it until one or two hours have passed by and you’ve seen the effect it has on you. In fact, if it’s the first time you do it, try only one piece and once that time has elapsed, you decide whether or not you want to finish the portion. But remember that the effect always takes longer to reach than if you smoke it, but also lasts much longer.
Once this is explained, the effect also has a lot to do with the strain and quality of cannabis you have used.
For example, if you prepare brownie with an indica or hybrid cultivar with a high CBD content and caryophyllene diterpenes, the effects will be narcotic or relaxing.
On the other hand, if you use sativa marijuana with low CBD content and high monoterpenic composition, it is normal for you to become active or be more cheerful and happy.
So, what do you say? Would you like to try it? ??? The truth is that marijuana brownie is one of those recipes you always get it fine. That’s right, be careful not to put it within reach of children! Don’t be scared out of your mind.
Otherwise, you’ve already seen that it’s very easy to make, as the ingredients are basic, so much so that you don’t even have to go out to the supermarket for shopping, because you have everything at home, which always frees you from more than a trouble, and you don’t need to be a chef specialist. The effects are the same as if you smoked cannabis, only that they take longer to arrive and last longer.
