Kärleksmums or Swedish Love Yummies

I've blogged about this in my old blog but it's one of those dessert I make now and then since they store really well and I like the hint of coffee in them. They don't photograph very well for me but it's really quite good! It's not the same like the coconut-chocolatey balls you can buy from Ikea but it is more cake-like.

This recipe is taken from one of those Swedish sites I check out regularly for inspiration for Swedish food or otherwise. You can google 'kärleksmums' and probably find a few variations of the recipe but this one from Anne's works well for me :)

Swedish Love Yummies

2 eggs
240g sugar
150 ml milk
225g flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla sugar or extract
1 tablespoon cacao powder
150 g melted butter

For the frosting
150g sieved powdered sugar
4 tablespoons melted butter
4 tablespoons cold strong coffee
1 tablespoons cacao powder
2 teaspoons vanilla sugar or extract
dessicated coconut flakes

  1. Butter and line the pan with baking paper while preheating the oven at 225 °C.
  2. Beat the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy, then add in the rest of the ingredients one by one, making sure to blend well and make sure there are no lumps, ending with the addition of melted butter. Pour it into the pan and bake for about 15 minutes. Test it with a skewer to make sure its done and let it cool while you prepare the frosting.

  3. For the frosting, just mix everything together except for the coconut flakes which you sprinkle after you pour the frosting over the cooled cake. Serve warm or cold, it's equally good!
