Never fear: There's no actual cat tongue in this recipe, which actually gets the name from the type (and shape) of the cookies it is made with. The cookies are crushed, either in a food processor or the old-fashioned way, with a rolling pin, and then mixed with the other ingredients to form a smooth, creamy batter. You can use most any type of cookie to form the crumbs; buttery shortbread cookies are especially delicious.


  • 200 grams cat tongue biscuits (or shortbread biscuits)
  • 125 grams chocolate powder
  • 125 grams sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil (or vegetable oil)
  • 200 milliliters milk


  1. Preheat oven to 360°F.
  2. Grease a round cake pan with butter and sprinkle with flour. Set aside.
  3. Crush the biscuits using a food processor (or place them in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin).
  4. In a bowl, combine the biscuits, cocoa powder, sugar, and baking powder.
  5. In another bowl, beat the eggs well.
  6. Add the oil and the milk, and beat some more.
  7. Combine the two mixtures in one bowl, and beat until very smooth.
  8. Pour batter into cake pan and bake for about 40 minutes.
  9. Perform a toothpick test to make sure the cake is done. Once done, remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes, then remove from the pan.
