At the café, we’ve been baking that most famous Swedish cake – Kladdkaka – for years. The name means ‘sticky cake’ – owing to the fact that the middle is left a little under baked and still sticky. There is not baking power in this cake precisely to keep it dense and claggy.
Now, our recipe is pretty good… However, we have to admit that it has now been improved by Astrid Aurell (11 years old – and born the day that ScandiKitchen opened in 2007).
If you have never had Kladdkaka before, we highly recommend that you try this cake. There is a reason Kladdkaka the most baked cake in Sweden… also, it is SO simple to make. The only thing is: The baking time is VERY important, you need to remove the cake JUST before it is baked, or it will be dry. Better under baked than over baked.
Serves 4-6 people for afternoon Fika.
