Kladdkaka - Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake
Simple ingredients. Simple method. So delicious! Crisp on the outside and soft, sticky, gooey goodness inside. This is fine on its own but would be great with whipped cream and either strawberries or raspberries. Yum!
This has become a go-to recipe if a need to make a super quick dessert or afternoon tea treat. Recipe below or here.
1/2 cup all-purpose/plain flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
pinch of salt
1 1/3 cups sugar (i prefer slightly less sugar and use 1 1/4 cup)
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 300F or 150C. Lightly grease an 8-inch pie plate.
Sift together the dry ingredients and set aside. Stir the eggs into the sugar until smooth. Add the flour mixture, and stir until just combined (30 strokes max). Pour in the vanilla and the butter, stir until well combined. Pour onto prepared pie plate and bake. I never really look at baking times as every oven is different. I look for a set centre, and use a tooth pic to check doneness.
