Kladdkaka Swedish Chocolate Cake

Kladdkaka Swedish Chocolate Cake: A flat lay of a finished cake laid on a table with ingredients, plates and polaroid photos.

The classic Christmas cake is not for everyone, with that dense boozy fruit mixture an acquired taste. For an alternative this season try the Swedish chocolate cake Kladdkaka, roughly translated as ‘sticky cake’ or ‘gooey cake’, which is delicious but very simple to make.

This recipe if flourless, rich, moist and just the right amount of heavy; perfect served warm with vanilla ice cream on a cold winter’s day.


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
