Author Notes

This is a simple and very traditional mudcake we do here in Sweden. This is the first cake everyone here learns to do and you should do that as well.

  4. Spread batter in a greased and floured baking tin.
  5. Bake the cake in the bottom of the oven for 15-20 minutes, no longer. The cake should be loose in the middle. Allow the cake to cool and then put it in the refrigerator about ½ -1 hour. Aim possibly over a little icing sugar just before the cake is served.

I suspect this is 175 degrees C but that is not indicated- other recipes online state 180C 350F Generally I trust Food52 recipes first- but this time its not up to snuff.
