The Ultimate Marijuana Space Cake Recipe

Something to bear in mind when it comes to space cakes is that they very easily overwhelm the unprepared. Eating cannabis infused foods creates a much stronger and longer lasting effect than smoking the same amount of marijuana. This is because when cannabis is consumed through the gastrointestinal tract, the liver turns the THC into 11-hydroxy-THC, a much more potent form of the cannabinoid. When you combine this with the fact that it takes about 45-90 minutes for the cannabis to reach the liver and take effect, it is very tempting to double down since the brownie doesn’t seem to kick in. Almost everyone experimenting with edibles has gone down that route at least once - it can easily knock you off your feet. So, before reaching for more, wait for at least one hour to see how it feels.
To make the Ultimate Space Cake you will need:
For the brownies:
115 grams of cannabis butter
60 grams of self-rising flour
225 grams of brown sugar
½ teaspoon of baking powder
Grated rind of one orange
45 grams of cocoa powder
30 grams of ground almonds
For the icing (optional, but certainly worth it!):
40-55 grams of cocoa powder
115 grams of normal butter
235-275 grams of icing sugar
At least 2 tsp of water (more as needed)
Any other treat you may want on top!
Note: making icing is not an exact science, and quantities will vary depending on the area you are covering, as well as the thickness you want it to be – so experiment a bit.
Making the brownies:
Now that you have all of the ingredients, it’s time to turn them into a tasty and trippy treat:
1. Sieve the baking powder, cocoa powder and self-rising flour into a large mixing bowl. The sieving motion allows the powders to become aerated, making for a much more fluffy and delightful cake.
2. Now add in your ground almonds, orange rind and sugar to the bowl. Mix it all up with your hands.
3. Add in the warmed cannabis butter and eggs then beat the mixture together until it has a smooth texture.
4. Pour the mixture into a brownie baking tray or any shallow dish that has been greased and lined with greaseproof baking paper.
5. Pre-heat your oven to 150 degrees Celsius (around Gas Mark 2 for those with gas ovens) and bake for 50-55 minutes.
Making the icing:
Now that the brownies are done, take them out of the oven. It is time to make the topping. This is optional, so if you can’t wait, your brownies are ready at this point; although putting icing on them is what will really make them “ultimate”.
1. Simply mix all of the icing ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir until it has reach the desired consistency. Start off with a small amount of water, and continue to mix more in to help get the correct thickness. As mentioned, there is no precise way to make icing, and it will largely depend on personal preference.
2. Once you have your icing mixed up, use a silicone spatula (or something similar) to apply it to the top of your cooked brownies.
3. If you didn’t add things like marshmallows into the actual icing mix itself, then you can add these on now. Also, don’t be afraid to experiment with toppings either, we personally like butterscotch ships and/or marshmallows – however, we have heard that crushed up maltesers and cookies go really well also!
4. Cut up your brownies into equal portions and enjoy!
5. To store, keep them in an airtight container and out of direct sunlight.
There you have it - the ultimate space cakes! If you have a variance, or prefer a different topping that you want to share, let us know about it in the comments below.
