Cost: 25+

  • 2 Large Egg Whites Room Temp
  • 3/4 cup Corn Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Sugar Granualted
  • 1 1/2 cup Light Corn Syrup
  • 1 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 stick Cannabutter melted
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract Pure
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 3 1/2 cups Raw Almonds, Skin on
  • 1 non stick cooking spray
  • Begin by making the "mazetta": Using your electric mixer, beat egg whites until stiff; then set aside.

  • In your saucepan, combine corn syrup, 1/4 cup water, and sugar. Use candy thermometer. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring with a wooden spoon, about 5 minutes.

  • Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until temperature reaches 242 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove sugar syrup from heat. Beating constantly on medium speed, slowly pour hot syrup into the egg whites that you set aside. Continue beating for 3 to 4 minutes until syrup is incorporated.
  • Next, spray an 8-inch square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

  • In your saucepan, again, combine corn syrup and sugar. Use your candy thermometer. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, 5 to 10 minutes. 

  • Over medium-high heat, cook to 280 degrees (soft-crack stage), about 12 to 15 minutes, without stirring. If the heat is too high, it can boil over, so you have to stay and watch.

  • Remove from heat; let stand for 2 minutes. Pour your syrup over the mazetta. Working QUICKLY, stir with a wooden spoon until almost smooth. Then stir in cannabutter, vanilla, and Himalayan salt. Mix until cannabutter is incorporated. Then as an almost final step, stir in the almonds.
  • Let stand at room temperature, uncovered, until firm, 4 to 6 hours.

  • Spray a large cutting board generously with non stick spray. Unmold nougat from pan ontoyour cutting board. Cut the nougat into chunks. Wrap each piece in parchment paper and seal tight! ENJOY!

Keyword: cannabis butter

Cost: 20-25

For The Delicious TOPPING:

  • 1/4 cup Cannabis Butter Melted
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 8-10 Pineapple Slices From the can
  • 20 Maraschino cherries


  • 1 1/2 Cake Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 6 tbsp Cannabis Butter Room Temp
  • 3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 lg Egg Whites
  • 1/3 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/3 cup Milk or Cannabis Milk You Choose! More Cannabis=More potent.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C).

  • Prepare topping first: Pour 1/4 cup melted butter into a parchment-paper lined cake pan. 

  • Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over butter.

  • Arange about 6-7 pineapple slices and all the cherries on top of the brown sugar.

  •  Place pan in the refrigerator for a few minutes as you prepare the cake batter. 


  • Whisk the cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together. Set aside.

  • Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle or whisk attachment, beat the butter on high speed until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Add the sugar and beat on high speed until creamed together, about 1 minute. On high speed, beat in the egg whites until combined, then beat in the sour cream and vanilla extract.Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Turn the mixer onto low speed and as the mixer runs, slowly pour in the milk. Beat on low speed just until all of the ingredients are combined. Do not over-mix. The batter will be slightly thick.
  • Remove topping from the refrigerator. Pour and spread cake batter evenly over topping.

  • Bake for 45 minutes, tenting foil on top of the cake halfway through bake time to prevent the top from over-browning. Remember we're doing an upside-down cake!
  • Remove cake from the oven and cool on a wire rack for just 20 minutes. 

  • Gently place a cake stand or plate underneath your cake pan, and flip it over!

  • Enjoy!
