How to make your favorite cannabis space cake at home

There are a lot of different recipes for space cake out there. Learn how to make the best and most delicious one! Simple and quick.

Space cake is a cannabis connoisseur’s rite of passage. Sampling this cannadelicacy in Amsterdam was a must for discerning stoners of an entire generation.

Space cake is like any other cannabis edible. It creates a cerebral, slow starting, long-lasting body high.

There are a lot of different recipes out there. However, the basics of space cake are relatively simple. Just replace the butter in your favourite baked goods recipe with cannabutter.

Word to the wise, however. No matter how delicious, be sure to eat only the recommended amount. Also, expect the high to kick in about an hour and a half after ingestion.


  • 1 cup cannabutter
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1¾ cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • Flavourings (chocolate chips, peanut butter, mixed fruits, nuts or anything else to add a little extra flavour and “zing” to your cake)
  • 1 cake pan
  • Medium bowl


Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C. Melt your cannabutter. Add all the dry ingredients together first. Then add the eggs, milk and cannabutter. Mix together to make a smooth batter. Then add your non-dry and bulkier flavourings and goodies.

Grease your cake pan thoroughly. Pour the batter into the pan. Pop the pan into the centre oven rack. Bake for approximately 25 minutes.

Check if the space cake is done by sticking a knife into the centre. If it comes out clean, it is done. If batter sticks to the knife, it is still not ready to be removed.

Once properly baked, remove your space cake and let it sit for half an hour. If you wish to add toppings (including frosting), make sure the cake is well cooled before you do so.

Serve and enjoy! Makes between 8-16 servings.
