Choreg Cake

Choreg is an Armenian, lightly-sweet bread typically prepared during Easter. You don't have to miss out on your family traditions, and all of your cultural flavors. Pair it with salty cheese and you have an amazing combo.

What you need:

  • Classic Yellow Cake Mix
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp caraway seeds
  • 1/2 tsp mastic gum
  • 1/2 tsp mahleb


  1. Combine all the dry ingredients together: 

  2. Add in the butter, milk & eggs. Mix until fully incorporated.

  3. Sprinkle extra caraway seeds on the bottom of the bunt pan, or on top of the cake, if not turned upside down.

  4. Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  5. Remove cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes to avoid it from falling apart.

  6. Turn the cake out of the pan onto a cooling rack to cool to room temperature.

  7. Enjoy!
