Chocolate mud cake, or “Kladdkaka” as we call it in Sweden, is one of the most beloved cakes for both adults and children. It’s rich, chocolate, gooey and just wonderful in every way. It’s also super simple as it only required a handful of ingredients, but just because it’s “simple” that doesn’t mean you get it right every time.
When it comes to this chocolate mud cake, the goal is to make a cake that is sturdy enough to slice and even hold in your hand, but to be completely sticky and gooey on the inside once you bite into it.
After several attempts and tweaking of ingredients, I have finally made it: the perfect chocolate mud cake, and vegan too!
It’s firm to the touch, sticky on the inside and has a lovely chocolate flavor without being too rich or over powering.
Definitely a cake I would recommend for a children’s birthday party! 🙂
