Kladkakka - Sweedish Chocolate Cake

There can never be enough recipes for Chocolate cake, I treasure and welcome them always. The gooey ones, the fudgy ones, the fully set cakey ones. Chocolate cake recipes are my weakness truly.

Kladkakka - Sweedish Chocolate Cake

Yesterday when I was wondering what to make with K, a dear friend Swapna reminded me of Kladkakka, Sweedish Chocolate Cake and I remembered a recipe I had bookmarked ages ago and not tried it. I was all set to K for Kaju Cookies (yes lol) but then Kladkakka called out, I came back from the workshop today, baked it, photographed it and here it is ready to share with you guys. I have changed a few things as usual but the more or less stuck to it in principal.

This is apparently the make anytime, last minute chocolate cake for the people of Sweden, the one they can rustle up in sleep even, all the ingredients are found in most pantries and its super easy to make. The cake is moist and almost fudgy in the middle though I don't know why I didn't get a smooth top, the eggs I used were small may be I will use an additional one next time but all in all an hour from baking time and the cake is half gone. I am sure I am making this again soon to be served with whipped cream or ice cream like suggested usually.
