Today, the 7th of November, is a special day in Sweden. It is one of my favourite days, it is - Kladdkakans dag!
Kladdkaka literally translates to "sticky cake", but I have taken it upon myself to translate the kladdkaka to "Sticky Chocolate Cake", which I feel describes what it is a little more in detail. There is no actual chocolate in the cake, but cocoa powder, and it really is one of the simplest bakes ever!
The kladdkaka was the first cake I ever made on my own without the help of an adult when I wasn't even a teenager. It's that simple. And for something so easy to bake it really tastes amazing. The rich cocoa flavour and stickyness of it really hits the spot!
You traditionally serve it with whipped cream and it is just heaven in a slice.
