I had some serious need for chocolate this past weekend, and since it was my birthday I decided to just go for it.
Chocolate in cake form, to be exact. I made a Kladdkaka (Sticky Cake), but to change things up I added extra sea salt to my usual recipe.
Served with homemade caramel sauce and another sprinkle of sea salt. It’s so easy to make and delicious to serve if you have guests. Or for your Valentine.
Here’s my go-to recipe:
- 150 ml melted butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1.5 Tsp. vanilla sugar
- 4 Tsp. cocoa powder (unsweetened)
- 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. salt
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl (yes, you just need 1 single bowl!) with a rubber spatula until they reach a creamy, chocolatey cake batter consistancy.
Pour into a greased springform pan
Bake at 380° F for 25-35 minutes. The inside of the center should still be sticky soft (but not liquid) and sometimes a nice cracked crust forms on top.
Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar and serve with whipped cream and fresh strawberries.
Or, in my case, with salted caramel sauce.
And if you aren’t suffering from chocolate overload yet, keep on reading.

This is probably the most decadent nougat/chocolate bar I have ever eaten. Two layers of silky nougat, one light and one dark.
I also realized that you can make a delicious hot chocolate by melting a whole bar in hot milk – add some coffee for a nougat mocha.
