Swedish sticky chocolate cake aka kladdkaka - recipe

Chocolate and a little bit of salt is the perfect match! Remember to allow the cake to cool properly before serving it. Then the cake gets the perfect sticky consistency! This gooey chocolate cake is similar to mud cake or a sticky brownie and is great served with some whipped cream

Recipe:

About 8 servings

Ingredients:


200 g butter

200 g dark chocolate of good quality

5 ounces of caster sugar

2 proper pinches of salt

¼ cup of wheat flour

2 tbsp cocoa

1 tsp vanilla powder

1 tsp baking soda

3 eggs


Method:


1. Set the oven to 345 degrees Fahrenheit. Melt the butter in a pot. Remove the pan from the heat and add chopped chocolate. Stir until the chocolate has melted. Add sugar and salt while stirring. Mix flour, cocoa, baking powder and vanilla powder and sift it into the batter, fold everything together. Add one egg at a time, not stirring to much but just until you get a smooth batter. Do not whip it together, just fold (or the cake won’t be that chewy) 


2. Cover a round tin with removable edges (about 23 cm in diameter) with parchment paper. This is easiest made by brushing the edges and the bottom with a little oil before covering it with paper. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake in the middle of the oven for about 15-20 minutes. The cake should still be a bit creamy in the middle. Remove the cake and let it cool completely before removing the tin. Serve with whipped cream and maybe some fresh berries.
