Jojo birthday cakes are delicious and a little different from regular pancakes.
However, they are one of the most popular dessert in Israel and have become an iconic dessert for Jewish and non-Jewish alike.
Here’s a look at the basics of Jojo cakes.
Ingredients Jojo cake, cake batter: One 15-ounce can of cream of tartar, 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1/2 cup of cornstarch, 3/4 cup of flour, 3 teaspoons of baking powder, 2 teaspoons of salt, and 3 tablespoons of baking soda.
The recipe calls for flour and sugar to be mixed with milk.
You can substitute milk for powdered sugar.
If you’re using cake flour, make sure you use a standard flour like white, white, or white/brown.
This cake batter is perfect for baking with no cake flour.
For baking with cake flour and baking powder make sure to mix well with a wooden spoon, or your mixer.

Bake the cake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown and the center is firm.
Cool the cake on a wire rack.
When the cake is done, frost the cake with the chocolate icing and enjoy!
