Kladdkaka by Emelie Forsberg


by Emelie Forsberg

Kladdkaka (lit. Gooey cake but more commonly known as “chocolate mud cake”) is a type of Swedish cake. This dense sticky chocolate cake is similar to the American brownie but has a soft and viscous centre. It is sometimes eaten with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

The cake is basically a chocolate-flavoured sponge cake without leavener which is prepared by gently stirring the ingredients instead of beating eggs and sugar.

Very little salt

100 g butter

1 dl (0.1 l) Wheat

Stir the and the eggs and sugar very gently ( no whisking!)

Things to add in the cake: everything you like! I prefer nutella, walnuts, m&m´s or chocolate pieces.

Then add all the ingredients, put it in the owen at 175 Celsius. 15-20 minutes depending how you like the consistent to be like!
