A few ingredients come together to make this classic Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake recipe. This cake comes out of the oven with a crispy top and a gooey, fudgy center with chocolate in every bite. Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake is the perfect dessert for a dinner party or the holidays.
Welcome to Choctoberfest 2018! This is a wonderful time of year. Over 100 bloggers are in our kitchens and churning out the best chocolate recipes to get you through October and the holidays. Past Choctoberfest’s have produced some of my most inspired recipes like Homemade Chocolate Pudding and Cracker Candy. This year I decided to use this as an opportunity to make a recipe I’ve had on my list for a while, Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake (Kladdkaka).

I was SO EXCITED to see that Barlean’s was a partner again this year. They are such a great supporter of food bloggers and have participated not only in Choctoberfest but Cookout Week as well. I made a wonderful Margarita Pie with a pretzel crust with Barleans’s instead of butter and it turned out great.
Why swap out butter for butter flavored coconut oil?
- It’s a simple 1 for 1 swap. Use butter flavored coconut oil in cookies, brownies or most anywhere that butter is called for in recipes.
- Unlike regular coconut oil, you almost completely miss the coconut taste.
- It’s not just for baking! Butter flavored coconut oil works great in sautees, sauces, and light frying as well.
I’ve had this cake on my mind for the past year or so. While I’ve been sharing more recipes from Michigan and my family, I have been wanting to delve a little deeper into recipes from my heritage as well. My dad’s family is from Sweden and my husband’s family is Norwegian so you might be seeing more and more of these recipes on the blog soon. Until then, let’s get on to this delicious chocolate cake recipe.
How to make Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
In a medium-sized bowl whisk 2 eggs.
Slowly whisk the sugar in with the eggs.
Add a mesh strainer to the top of the bowl. Pour in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Lift up the strainer and gently shake all the ingredients into the bowl.
Pour in the vanilla.
Next, melt the Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut Oil then add pour it into the flour/cocoa mixture. Whisk to combine.
Cover the bottom of an 8″ spring-form pan with parchment/baking paper. Grease the sides so they release easily. Add the batter to the pan. Bake for 25-28 minutes.
Remove the sides of the pan then let cool. then sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Tips & Variations for Swedish Sticky Cake:
- Don’t have butter flavored coconut oil on hand? Swap out 1:1 for unsalted butter. If you only have salted butter omit the salt.
- No springform pan? That’s fine, just use a regular pie plate that is well oiled.
- Make it even better served with fresh fruit or fruit sauce.
And here you are….

Who says you can’t have your cake and enjoy a beer too? Pour a cup into this cake batter then enjoy the rest while the cake bakes. This Irish Stout Cake is the perfect dessert for upcoming St. Patrick’s Day. Did I mention that I made it with Michigan Craft Beer? Celebrate the Holiday and Michigan in one sweet dessert that is so easy to make.
I’m so excited this year to participate in #FoodBloggerLove recipe swap. This event is all about showing the ‘love’ to other Food Bloggers and recreating their best recipes. I am pairing up with Amy Bartlett over at Savory Moments. There were so many wonderful recipes on her site that by the time I finally settled on one I had a bunch more on my list to make but once I landed on her Guinness Chocolate Cake I knew this was the perfect recipe. Check out Amy on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and of course on her blog where she’s cooking it up in the kitchen – can you believe she does it all with twins running around?
If you follow Bottom Left of the Mitten at all you know that I do a lot of food and beer pairing but I haven’t ever cooked ‘with’ beer let alone bake with it. I’m glad that I went outside my comfort zone for #FoodBloggerLove. Not only was Amy’s recipe really easy it gave me an opportunity to swap out the original Guinness that she used for a Michigan Craft Beer which I’m always 100% here for. So if you want you can use 1 cup of Guinness or do I like I did and reach for Short’s Brewing Uncle Steve’s Traditional Irish Style Stout. Now on to the cake!!
To start preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8-inch springform pan. On the stove top over medium heat in a small pan heat the butter until melted then add 1 cup of beer. Turn off the heat then add the cocoa powder, sugar and brown sugar. Set aside to cool. In another smaller bowl add the eggs sour cream, vanilla then stir to combine. Now in a larger bowl add the dry ingredients: flour, salt and baking soda.
Once the butter & beer has cooled down add to the dry ingredients. Then add the sour cream & eggs to that. Make sure the springform pan is liberally greased or you can even add parchment paper to it. Place the pan on a cookie sheet just in case the bottom leaks a little bit then add the batter. Bake the cake for 45-55 minutes depending on your oven. Mine went for a full 55 minutes. The top of my cake did crack and you know of course I just watched a baking hack video where it showed how not to have that happen but of course I forgot and you know what, oh well. It turned out perfect!
Take out of the oven and then use a knife to scrape the sides of the pan to release the cake from the sides then flip open the springform pan. Put the cake on a cooling rack or plate and let the cake cool fully. Time to make the frosting! Use one tub of mascarpone cheese and add sugar and vanilla until completely combined. Spread over the top of the cake. Cut into 8 slices and here you are….
