If there is one thing Swedish people love to do, it's Fika!
Fika = a Swedish coffee break.
Fika in Sweden isn't just a coffee break; it's a moment to slow down and appreciate the good things in life and pair it with delicious baked goods. One of the most popular baked goods to serve is a Swedish kladdkaka.
Kladdkaka is just gooey, chocolate yumminess, kind of like brownies but better! It is fudgy, it is sticky, and it just melts in your mouth. This chocolate cake is by far one of the most popular Fika treats in Sweden.
You can make kladdkaka in 5 minutes, and you won't end up with many dishes either. It needs to bake for just 18-19 minutes, but it needs to get some time in the fridge, and oh my goodness, you get the fudgiest yummiest chocolate treat ever!
It is super delicious paired with vanilla ice cream.
If you have ever been to IKEA, you have probably seen kladdkaka at the cafe there, but of course, homemade is always better! Pro tip: to make the best kladdkaka, use a good quality, dark unsweetened cocoa powder!
