Day 4: Kladdkaka - Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake
The first time I ever tried this Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake (Kladdkaka) was about two years ago, and I've been in love with it ever since! I love the fact that its gooey in the middle but crisp on the outside and around the edges. But I can't go to the bakery EVERY day, can I? So I thought how about I make it myself? Best idea ever, I used the recipe from TASTY and it was soooo good! Well anyways, that was a year ago. Today was my sister's 17th birthday, and she LOVES this cake, so I thought why not make it for her?
First I mixed the eggs and the sugar until it was pale and smooth. It was very thick though.
Then I sifted the cocoa powder, salt and flour. It's very important to sift the flour so make sure you always do that.
I added the vanilla + butter (melted) in and whisked to combined.
I buttered my pan SUPER well and covered the pan with cocoa powder. Then I added the mixture in! I put it into the oven for 23 minutes.
Gorgeous isn't it?
1 ⅓ cups sugar
½ cup flour
¼ cup cocoa powder
1 pinch salt
½ cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
In a medium bowl, whisk the sugar and eggs until the mixture is pale yellow in color. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Fold until incorporated.
Mix in the butter and vanilla.
Grease a pan with butter and sprinkle cocoa powder to coat.
Pour in batter and smooth out. (Batter will be very thick)
Bake for 20 minutes or until the top has hardened. The center should still be soft. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
