Today is Kladkakans dag!

The ultimate student party quick-fix dessert recipe! Easy to bake in 5 SIMPLE steps and taste heavenly, seriously can’t go wrong with cocoa. Sweden is known for its year-round food traditions with days dedicated to waffles, cinnamon buns, semla (cream bun) and today is the Kladkaka day. Kladdkaka is a Swedish  dense chocolate cake that resembles a typical brownie and has a soft and gooey center, usually served with whipped cream, vanilla sauce or ice-cream.

Here is an easy recipe which I always use.  Fun topping suggestions: Nutella, M&Ms, Coconut shreds, berries, nuts, baking pearls … possibilities are endless with this easy-go-party recipe.

Ingredients:

2 eggs

2.5 dl (250ml) sugar

4 tablespoon cocoa

2 teaspoon vanilla sugar

100g butter (melted)

1 dl (100ml) plain flour

0.5 teaspoon salt

Icing sugar for dusting (optional)

Steps:

1. Set the oven to 175°C.

2. Whip the egg and sugar until fluffy.

3. Blend the rest of the ingredients together. Tip: sieve flour and cocoa for better texture.

4. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

5. Serve with vanilla cream or ice-cream. Optional: Add some fun toppings to make it pretty. Da-dahhh! Baking complete.

Bon appétit! Smaklig måltid!
