Recipe – Dajmkladdkaka (Daim Chocolate Cake)

Daim, that magical crunchy, chocolately toffee bar that sometimes seems well worth a few cavities. If you’re a fan then this is the cake for you.



What you need:

The base:

200 g butter

200 g dark chocolate

4 large eggs

1 1/2 d. sugar

2 172 dl flour

pinch of salt

Cream topping: 

2 1/2 dl whipping cream (vispgrädde)

1 tsp icing sugar (florsocker)

1 1/2 tsp powdered cocao

2 x 56 g Daim (roughly two double packs of Daim)


What you do: 

Melt the butter and dark chocolate in a water bath until smooth and incorporated.  Whip the eggs and sugar in a separate bowl until light and fluffy, then quick stir in the slightly cooled chocolate mixture. Add the flour and salt, blending well.

Pour the mixture into a greased cake form and bake on the middle shelf 15-17 minutes. Let the cake cool in the cake form for at least one hour – you can chill it in the fridge overnight as well.

Whip the cream together with the sugar and cocoa, then add half the crumbled Daim into the mixture. Spread the cream mixture over the chilled cake, then top with the remaining Daim.
