Swedes love “kladdkaka”, mud cake in English. You have probably seen the classic mud cake recipe on this blog, and the mud cake muffins with the different fillings. Now it’s time to introduce a new favourite for all white chocolate lovers! Mud cake made of white chocolate! I don’t like white chocolate just like that but in desserts paired with lemon or raspberries, it’s irresistible. I suggest you serve this cake with raspberries or other fresh berries or fruits you like. Maybe some ice cream with berry flavour? Let me know how you like to eat this delicious dessert.
The original recipe is from this site in Swedish. I didn’t change any ingredient because the recipe is so perfect.
Recipe for white chocolate mud cake
- 100 g salted butter, melted
- 100 g white chocolate, chopped
- 2 dl sugar
- 0.5 tsp vanilla powder
- Pinch of salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 dl flour
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C. Grease or put some parchment paper in the bottom of a baking pan (approx. 23 cm)
Melt the butter in a saucepan and remove from the heat. Add the chopped chocolate and stir until the chocolate is melted.
Pour sugar, vanilla powder and salt into the butter. Add one egg at a time and gently mix. Don’t stir, because that will give you a fluffy cake. Carefully mix the flour into the batter with a spoon or a spatula. Pour it into the pan and bake for 19-21 minutes in the middle of the oven. Keep it muddier if you want to eat it next day.
Let the cake cool in the pan. You will get the best result if you let it chill in the fridge for at least a few hours. Serve and enjoy!
If you don’t like white chocolate, you can just bake my classic chocolate mud cake. If you still want the white chocolate one, variate with different things to serve with. You can also try to add some flavours directly to the batter, like raspberries, lemon or why not saffron?
