Kladdkaka (Swedish goo cake)

May 11, 2015

Today, it was my turn to bring in baking for the team so that we had something to nibble on during our monthly meeting. I was asked to make something Swedish, and at first I was a bit unsure, because I don’t often bake Swedish things. But after having a bit of a think I decided I would bring in a Kladdkaka (Swedish goo cake).

It seemed like everyone loved it, which is great! I was really worried about how it would turn out, because I hadn’t attempted to make one in New Zealand before, and I couldn’t cut it to check seeing as I had to bring in the whole thing! But luckily it turned out great!

Because I got such great reviews and I loved it myself, I thought I would share the recipe with you so that you can give it a go yourself. I would recommend it for when you need to get something whipped up quite quickly, as it only takes about 40 minutes to make (including baking it in the oven)! So here goes:



  • 150 g butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 dl caster sugar
  • 2 dl flour
  • 1 dl cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tsp vanilla essence


  1. Heat the oven to 175 degrees.
  2. Melt the butter.
  3. Mix eggs, vanilla essence and sugar in a large bowl.
  4. Pour the melted butter into the mix and stir.
  5. Sift flour, cocoa and baking powder in a separate bowl and combine.
  6. Combine the wet and dry ingredients in the large bowl and stir well.
  7. Pour into a 22cm round baking tin, with removable sides.
  8. Bake in the middle of the oven for 30 minutes.
  9. Once out of the oven, gently push the sides down to even out the cake.

Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve hot with ice cream, or cold with cream!

    “Goo cake” doesn’t sound very appetising, but the photo looks amazing. Does it have a rich, gooey texture?

      Yeah I only called it ‘Goo cake’ because Nigella Lawson called it that and I didn’t know what else to translate it to. I guess you could also call it ‘sticky cake’ but that doesn’t sound too appetising either, haha! Yes, it is a rich chocolate cake with a gooey texture. 🙂
