Citizens, Kladdkaka (lit. Gooey cake but more commonly known as “chocolate mud cake”) is a type of Swedish cake that is basically like eating the most decadent chocolate brownie ever to grace the planet!
This dense sticky chocolate cake is indeed quite similar to a brownie and has a soft and gooey center. It is sometimes eaten with whipped cream (TFD prefers this) or vanilla ice cream.
The cake may have actually inspired the brownie or a similar French recipe.
The Swedes are notorious for having the sweetest tooth amongst all the Nordic countries and I heartily endorse this decadent “mainline” of dark chocolate goodness for those chocoholics amongst our Citizenry (of which TFD is himself one!).
I’ve made the recipe my own with the addition of a cardamom and rum-spiked whipped cream and a goodly hit of vanilla extract in the cake itself. This would effectively close out a classic Swedish dinner with a main course of – wait for it – Swedish meatballs!
