baking again

on friday i baked again, this time a swedish recipe called "kladdkaka". it is a chocolate-cake and i like it very much. but instead of my usual recipe i used the one that underbara clara posted some time ago. as she writes only in swedish i thought i'd translate it for you, as it is really very very good:

100g butter (melted)
3dl sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla-sugar
6 spoons of dark cacao
1,5 dl flour
juice of a half lime
some poppy seeds

blend everything carefully with a spoon or fork (whichever you prefer) except the poppy seeds. the dough is supposed to be fluffy and dark brown and really pasty. butter a pie-form and instead of breadcrumbs you spread poppy seeds into the buttered form. spread the dough inside the form, put some poppy seeds over it and bake everything for 20-25min at 175°.
after it has cooled down a bit you make it look a bit snowy by putting some powdered sugar over it.

the thing is that i never succeed in making the kladdkaka kladdig. it is supposed to be rather pasty inside when you take it out of the oven, and i never succeed with that. i guess i'll have to take it out earlier. still, right now it is very fluffy and very tasty.
