Kladdkaka

Kladdkaka is a Swedish cake that is more commonly known as chocolate mud cake. This cake does not use baking powder, and reminds me brownies! It is often served with whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream.

Although, I discovered that this cake is also delicious with the creamy nutmeg sauce that I make with my coffee cake recipe.

Yummy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (235 ml) of butter
  • 1½ cups (355 ml) of sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon (0.125 ml) of salt
  • 1 cup (235 ml) of cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 1 cup (235 ml) of sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs

Preparation

  1. Pre-heat oven to 300°F (150°C).
  2. Butter or grease a 9 inch (22 cm) cake pan. As an additional precaution, dust the pan with 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of cocoa, tapping the powder around all surfaces and discarding any remaining cocoa.
  3. Over medium heat, melt butter in a saucepan. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl add sugar, salt, flour and cocoa powder. Mix for consistency, then make a well in the middle.
  5. Add butter, eggs and vanilla extract to the dry mix. Use a mixer to get a consistent finish.
  6. Pour into the pan, and place in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes.
  7. This cake should be firm on the outer edges and gooey in the middle. After the 20 minute mark, periodically shake the tin. When the centre jiggles less than gelatin but is not completely firm, the cake is ready.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool for an hour. The cake will contract, making it easier to remove. Divide and serve for smiles.
  9. Remaining cake should be covered with cellophane wrap and refrigerated.

Review – Strong Female Characters

There are a lot of strong female characters in this book, which is something I appreciate!

Thank you Katherine Holom for your wonderful 🌟🌟🌟 review of The Van Helsing Paradox! Someone who appreciates the strong women featured within!

Katherine Holom - 3.0 out of 5 Stars - Interesting Novel - This paranormal novel covers a lot of ground with an interesting and different take on hunters. Conceptually I liked it a lot. The plot was wide-ranging and complex. Clara, the main character, is remarkable. Instinctively she’s able to handle some things that most cannot. She is written a bit like Sherlock Holmes, with Clara often the smartest in the room. Even as a child she’s more perceptive than most around her. Instincts that certainly come in handy because the world is a dangerous place. There are a lot of strong female characters in this book, which is something I appreciate!
