Kiki’s Delivery Service Chocolate Cake

I am absolutely OBSESSED with Kiki’s Delivery Service, so when I found the recipe (Diethood)to the Chocolate cake that her friend Madame makes her as a show of appreciation in the movie I knew I had to make it so I can enjoy it while I watch the movie. So let’s get started!



  • 1 C sugar
  • 3/4 C flour (plus 2 tbsp)
  • 1/4 C cocoa powder (plus 2 tbsp)
  • 1 Tspn baking soda
  • 1/2 Tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 Tsp salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 C buttermilk
  • 1/2 C cooled coffee
  • 1/4 C vegetable oil
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla


  • 1/2 Bag of chocolate chips
  • 3/4 C heavy whipping cream
  • 4 Tbsp salted butter



*Start with the frosting because it needs time to chill 🙂

  1. First, place your chocolate chips in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Cook the whipping cream and butter in a saucepan over medium heat until just boiling, stirring frequently. Pour the cream mix over the chocolate and whisk briskly until completely smooth.
  3. Place some plastic wrap over the bowl and put it in the fridge to chill. After 1 hour, stir the mix thoroughly. Replace the cover and put the mix back in the fridge for another hour or until it reaches spreading consistency.


*Pre-heat oven to 350º and spray cooking pan with cooking spray

  1. Dump the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Whisk it!
  2. Whisk in the egg, buttermilk, coffee, oil and vanilla. Beat the mix briskly for 2 minutes.
  3. Pour the batter into your pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Set the cake pan on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes. Then flip the cake out of the pan and allow it to cool completely on the rack.
  5. When the cake is cool, frost!

This cake was so delicious and yes, I did take apiece before I watched the movie. I had to make sure it was okay and let me tell you it was DELICIOUS! Thank you Katrina for the recipe, I cant wait to dive into the cake while I watch Kiki’s Delivery Service!
