I saw this recipe for Kladdkaka on Jennie’s blog, lifestyledbyjennie and I knew I have to make it. It’s that delicious chocolate cake from Ikea. I get that each time I’m shopping there. As yesterday was Women’s Day, my husband made this cake for me (us). So, this is a sort of a guest post.

He made the cake with milk chocolate, as he discovered when he checked in the cupboards that we ran out of dark chocolate. I will make this cake again, with dark chocolate and I will update the recipe to make it dairy-free, more in line with our diet. We don’t have any dairy chocolate left in the cupboards and we will not buy it again.


The cake was so good, I loved it. It is very similar to the one from Ikea. My husband baked the cake for 20 minutes, but I think 17-18 minutes in the oven would make the cake more gooey, so keep that in mind if you prefer the cakes like that. For me, this cake is delicious regardless if is kept in the oven for 17 or 20 minutes. I had my cake with whipped cream, vegan, of course.

Ingredients for Kladdkaka, 8 servings:

– 200g plain white flour
– 200g sugar
– 100g margarine
– 100g milk chocolate
– 2 eggs
– 2 spoons of cacao powder

Start by preheat the oven to 180C or 160C for fan ovens.

In a bowl, put the chocolate and margarine, and heat it in the microwave, stopping every 10 seconds to stir. When the chocolate is melted, leave it to cool down a bit.

In a big bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar. Add the flour and cocoa powder and mix. Pour the chocolate mixture and stir until all the ingredients are incorporated.

Line a cake tin with baking paper and pour the cake batter into the tin. Put it in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. When baked, transfer the cake on a cooling rack and leave it to cool completely before serving.

    1. I think the eggs can be replaced with a mashed banana, in this recipe. As it doesn’t need to rise, it should work, I think.

  1. Oh my goodness, how delicious is that! I’ve never been to Ikea, so haven’t tasted their famous cake, but your husband’s version looks great.
