One of the first treats children in Sweden learn to cook, Kladdkaka is a gooey chocolate cake that is as firm as an American brownie due to its sugar content on the outside, but runny and liquid in the middle.



110g plain flour

270g granulated sugar

4 heaped tbsp cocoa powder

2 eggs

100g salted butter, melted

Serves 6


1. Preheat the oven to 170C / Gas Mark 4. Place the flour, sugar and cocoa into a bowl and mix to combine until an even colour with a balloon whisk. Add the eggs and mix to combine, then add the melted butter and mix until a thick chocolate mixture is achieved.

2. Spoon into individual silicone moulds and place onto a baking tray. Cook on a grid shelf on the 4th set of runners in the baking oven for 10-12 minutes until they gently spring back when lightly tapped on top. If your AGA does not have a baking oven, cook on a grid shelf on the 4th set of runners in the roasting oven with the cold plain shelf on top.

Allow to cool and turn out onto a serving plate, serve with some pouring cream.
