Kladdkaka cookies – a recipe for the best chocolate cookies a la Swedish chocolate kladdkaka
Kladdkaka cookies (makes 12)
200 g dark chocolate
135 g butter
285 g sugar
245 g all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking powder
50 g dark chocolate, chopped or buttons
Sea salt (optional)
Heat the oven to 175 C convection.
Melt the butter and chocolate in a small saucepan. Set it aside.
Mix the sugar and eggs together in a bowl with a spatula (don’t beat it). Add the flour, cocoa, baking powder and butter-chocolate mixture and mix well into an even dough. Stir chopped chocolate into the dough.
Line a baking sheet with baking paper. Using an ice cream spoon, form the dough into about 5 dough balls (cookies) on the baking sheet. Bake the cookies for 8-10 min. The dough will expand – it should – during baking. Take the cookies out and sprinkle them with sea salt. Then let the cookies cool. They should be soft. Enjoy!
