Kladdkaka

November 28, 2015

It’s almost Christmas… So you know what that means. Time to eat cake!

Kladdkaka is a traditional Swedish sticky chocolate cake. It’s gooey and oh so good.

A quick and easy recipe that’s ready to eat in an hour.

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of melted butter
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of powdered unsweetened cocoa
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp of vanilla sugar or vanilla extract
  • powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Use a spring form 9 inch pan. Butter and flour the pan and set aside.

Sift together the flour, salt and cocoa powder and set aside.

Wisk the eggs and sugar until fluffy and then slowly fold in the flour mixture, then the vanilla and the butter. Don’t over mix, you want as much volume as possible or you’ll get a pancake. But you do want it blended enough. Tricky I know.

Bake on the lower rack for about 28 to 32 minutes. The edges should be done but the center still slightly gooey. Use a toothpick to test. It should come out clean on the edges but slightly gooey in the center. If you over cook it you will get brownies…. but just as good.

Let cool and then dust with powdered sugar and serve with whipped cream!

The cake will look great on our Kastehelmi Cake Platter from iittala. Available here @ scandinaviangrace.com. After all presentation is important.
