Cuisine: Swedish
Courses: Dessert
Serves: 8 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 cup 198g / 7ozShortening
1 1/2 cups 297g / 10ozSugar
3   Eggs
2 oz 56gBaking chocolate - (unsweetened), melted
2 cups 125g / 4.4ozCake flour
2 teaspoons 10mlBaking powder
1 teaspoon 5mlSalt
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlBaking soda
1 cup 237mlCream - heavy
2 teaspoons 10mlVanilla extract

Recipe Instructions

Preheat oven to 325F Butter a Bundt pan and sprinkle with about 2 tbs dry bread crumbs, until it is well-coated. This makes a much better crust than flour does.

In a large bowl, add the sugar to the shortening and cream well. Blend in the eggs, one at a time, and beat well. Stir in the melted chocolate.

Sift together the dry ingredients.

Combine the cream and vanilla extract. Add to the chocolate mixture alternately with the dry ingredients, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 50-60 minutes. Cool the cake in the pan a few minutes before removing.


* A rich chocolate Bundt cake -- I got this recipe from my mom, who got it from an American book called Swedish Baking. I like to make this because it does not need to be frosted, which makes it an easy dessert. Yield: one Bundt cake.

* This is not an authentic Swedish recipe because their flour is different enough to cause problems in baking. However, the results seem authentic.
