Kladdkaka sounds funny, but this Swedish Sticky Cake is very tasty. It is easy to make and includes a delicious raspberry sauce.

For Raspberry Sauce:

  1. Crush raspberries in a medium sauce pan
  2. Add ½ cup sugar and lemon juice. Heat over medium heat until sugar is completely combined and just at a simmer
  3. In a separate container add water to cornstarch and mix
  4. Pour water mixture into simmering pan and mix well, allowing it to hit a simmering temperature. It should thicken.

  • Use a springform pan for the best results.
  • We cook for 18 minutes on the center rack, but the cake will get a bit gooier if you cook between 15-17.
  • Make sure to allow for a proper cooling time.
  • Raspberry sauce is optional, but any good chocolate topping would be great. Ice cream, whipped cream, or even just a dab of cream would be good on this recipe.
  • Store in refrigerator once cooled.
  • Calorie count INCLUDES 1/8 of the raspberry sauce
