Minecraft Cake Recipe 

Although a cake looks like simple food, the recipe is more complex than it entails a complex cake process. You need chickens, cows, sugar, and wheat to make a cake, and you might also have to visit some pastoral farms.

Let us now look at the cake recipe. You are going to need: 

  • An egg
  • Three buckets of milk
  • Two sugar
  • Three kinds of wheat
  • Crafting table 

I want to stress the need for buckets of milk, as you need nine iron ingots to make buckets. If you don’t have these, don’t worry. Here’s how you make them as well:

Making The Sugar 

Sugar is one of the main ingredients of the cake. You can obtain sugar from sugarcane. It would help if you farmed sugarcane if you don’t have it in your inventory.

To farm sugar cane, you must add blocks of water and dirt. After adding water blocks and dirt, in a few minutes, you will notice that sugar cane is grown into three blocks—harvest the first two blocks leaving the remaining block to regrow the sugarcane.  

Getting The Milk 

Milk is the next essential ingredient in making a cake in Minecraft. First, you need to have three buckets of milk. You can craft buckets with nine iron ingots at the crafting table.

Next, you must find a cow to get the milk. It is a must to have access to an adult cow. Go towards the cow with your three buckets and right-click to obtain the milk from a cow.

Getting An Egg  

To get milk, you needed to have a cow. Likewise, to get eggs, you need to find some chickens. In Minecraft, chickens regularly lay eggs. You can have a few chickens in the pen to ensure you get eggs whenever required.

At the same time, you can find some chickens if you wholeheartedly roam around. If you are lucky enough, you can find some eggs laid by roaming chickens. 

How To Get Wheat? 

Wheat is the final ingredient you need to make the cake. You can get wheat from a village farm or grow your wheat farm.
