The classic Christmas cake is not for everyone, but there are many alternatives around at the moment that there is something to please everyone. One of our favourites for this season is the Swedish chocolate cake Kladdkaka, roughly translated as ‘sticky cake’ or ‘gooey cake’, it is utterly delicious but very simple to make.
We’ve tried out a few recipes for this cake but our favourite is Call Me Cupcake’s flourless recipe, it’s rich, moist and just the right amount of heavy. It’s perfect served warm with vanilla ice cream on a cold winter’s day.
You will need…
250g Unsalted Butter
250g coarsely chopped dark chocolate (70%)
1/3 cup 1 1/2 tbsp (100 ml) strong coffee or espresso (or water)
4 large eggs, at room temperature
180g Caster Sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
A pinch of salt
