Kladdkaka Cake – Swedish Fudge Cake

Kladdkaka Cake - Swedish Fudge Cake

It’s Friday so it seems only worth it to have a slice of Kladdkaka Cake – Swedish Fudge Cake. Making it to the end of the week, through the early mornings and the wrangling of tasks and people just to sit down and have a moment of peace with some fudgy chocolate cake. Sweden has a cake just for your needs if this is what you’re currently hankering. And, even though it’s probably a cake you’ve never heard of, the ingredients are probably already sitting in your cupboard.

I don’t want to say this recipe is foolproof, but for any bakers who lack confidence, but are still avid chocolate cake fans, this is the recipe you want to try. It comes together in about 5 minutes and only takes 30 minutes of baking. It needs nothing fancy and can even be whipped up with a whisk if you have no hand mixer. This cake has your name on it!

Swedish Chocolate Cake recipe

Often when talking to people about baking, people who don’t love it note how much precision and patience can be required so they just don’t try any baking…but there are many easy and quick baking recipes such as scones or easy cookies that don’t require much thought or ingredients out of the ordinary.

Some countries have chocolate recipes so simple you wish you had known about them your whole life and today’s Kladdkaka Cake is one such recipe. Sure it has a funny name to us English speakers, but it’s the flavor of this thing that will have you coming back for another slice and pulling this recipe out again and again.

Yes, foreign baking isn’t fancy or all that different from the food we know. The more I delve into the world of food out there the more this fact is confirmed. This cake is almost (you’ll have to melt the butter in another bowl) a one bowl creation and is super easy to whip together. With the crust being almost hard meringue like in texture and the center like a fudgy brownie, this will impress any chocolate lover.

Kladdkaka Cake – Swedish Fudge Cake Notes

If you prefer a less fudgy center, simply leave the cake in the oven for a further 3-5 minutes and this will have a more substantial brownie texture.

The cake tin used here was 6 inches/15 centimeters so the cake has a higher crust and fudgier center.

This cake can easily be served in small slices (even at 6 inches) so you could easily serve 10 people with a dash of whipped cream on the side.
