The kladdkaka is a dense, sticky cake with a gooey center that all swedes love, and it’s super easy to make. It’s also very satisfying and a small piece goes a long way (for most people).
All you need is:
- 2 eggs
- 2,5 dl sugar
- 4-5 tablespoons of cacao
- 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
- 100 gram butter (melted)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
How to make it
- Set the oven to 175 degrees C (350 F)
- Melt the butter
- Mix sugar and eggs
- Add all the other ingredients and mix together, try to avoid getting to much air in
- Pour the mixture into your cake tin
- Bake in the oven for 15-20 min
- Serve with whipped cream, ice cream and/or berries 🙂
So what can you do when you have four cats and are extremely bored? The answer is hats, because why not? So my sister and I decided to make a different kind of hat for every cat. We made a tophat for Romeo, a “lady hat” for Tindra, a chefs hat for Ramses (that they all have to wear now if they wanna “help” me cook) and finally a fez for Rubin, because fezzes are cool.
They are about 80% toilet paper rolls, 15% paint, 10% tape, 5% super glue and 1% normal printer paper. (math is hard)
To make the top hat you just cut out the “height” of the hat, then cut up the rest of the roll so you get a rectangle. From this rectangle you make 2 circles, one smaller and one bigger, use the height roll to guide you. Glue it all together (I recommend super glue) and let it dry for a few minutes. Paint it and add a strip of paper around it. Done!
To make the “lady hat” you do pretty much the same. The height is a lot less and the lower circle thingy is a lot bigger. Paint it and when it’s dry you can add a strip of paper around and a bow. The bow is just a folded paper strip that you kinda wrinkle in the middle and then add another little piece of paper in the middle.
The chefs hat is the trickiest. First you cut out the “base” and then you cut out strips from the roll. You are gonna need a lot of glue, tape and patience. There are gonna be a lot of space between the strips but just cover it with tape from the inside and use a lot of glue on the top to hold it together. Paint it and it’s finished.
To make the fez you have to first cut out your desired height and then cut out a “pizza slice” and glue/tape it together to make it narrower at the top. Cut out a a circle for the top, glue and paint.
Now you’re ready to make your cats hate you.
When the fridge and freezer are pretty much empty you can always make pizza. Only your imagination sets the limit to what you can put on it. I put chicken, eggs, cheese and parsley on mine 🙂
For the dough:
- 5 dl flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 1/2 dl milk
- 1/2 dl olive oil
Mix all the dry ingredients before you knead everything together. Flatten with your hands or a rolling pin. Remember to put it on a non stick surface, I highly recommend IKEA’s oven mat that you can use over and over again.
For the tomato sauce:
- 1 can of crushed tomatoes
- 1-2 tablespoons of tomato paste
- oregano, salt and pepper to taste
Simply mix all the ingredients in a pot on the stove and cover the pizza with it. Now you can but pretty much anything on the pizza, just remember that more stuff requires longer time in the oven. Bake at 250 degrees C (480 F) for 15-20 min.
You will need: (4 portions)
- 500g spinach
- 1 yellow onion
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 tablespoons of flour
- 10 dl of water
- 1 vegetable bouillon cube
- 1 dl cream
- salt and pepper
- 4 eggs (boiled)
Chop the onions in small pieces, thaw the spinach if frozen and roughly chop it too. Fry the onion and spinach with the butter in a pot for a few minutes. Powder the flour into the pot to avoid clumps, then add water and the bouillon cube. Cook under a lid for about 10 minutes, (this is when I boil the eggs), before you add the cream and seasoning to taste.
Serve with halved eggs and if you’re really hungry a cheese or ham sandwich too. 🙂
The 10th of june was my mum’s birthday so this post is a bit late…
My mum loves strawberry cakes, but also white chocolate and orange flavored chocolate so I had that in mind when I made the cake.
My boyfriend came over today so I made him one of his favorites meals, fried chicken with rice.
You will need:
- 400g cooked chicken
- Any unflavored oil, I used rapeseed oil
- Flour (I used graham flour, but either works fine)
- Baking powder
- Seasoning, I used chili powder
- A fat cat
I served my fried chicken with rice, crème fraîche and some sauce made from coconut milk, soy sauce and sweet chili sauce.
