If you have ever been to Sweden you must have heard of kladdkaka. And if you haven’t, well then you better keep reading. Sweden is known for its Fika, when you meet up with friends and go to a café for a cup of tea/coffe and something to eat. And kladdkaka-a gooey chocolate cake-is the most popular.
I made a kladdkaka yesterday and thought I would share it with you all.
This is a very simple, fast cake to make. It has only six ingredients and four steps to it, but it is so yummy!
First set your oven to 175°C(150°C for fan ovens)
Prep: 10min Cooking time: 15-17min
*Plase note that ovens may vary and therefore cooking times may be different. You should check the cake after 10 minutes to make sure it is ok.
3/4 cup of sugar
3/4 cup of flour
100g baking chocolate
1tsp vanilla extract
Method: Mix eggs and sugar. In the meantime melt butter and chocolate together in a saucepan. Once the eggmixture is smooth, add the flour into it. The batter will now be pretty thick. Once the chocolate and butter mixture is melted add it into the batter. Mix in the vanilla and you are done!
The batter might look a bit runny but don’t worry it is supposed to look that way as that is what makes it all gooey on the inside.
Pour the batter into a greased 24cm round form with removable edges and cook for approx. 15 min.
The cake should be cooked all the way around but still be a little gooey on the inide so it is ok if you check it with a cake stick and some of the batter comes out of it, as long as it doesn’t look completely raw. Once the cake is cooled you can sprinkle some icing sugar on top.
Serve with some whipped cream/ice cream and fresh berries. Enjoy!
