So, were almost done with January. Its been a great month for me – I guess having some time off is great but I believe I feel better when having some daily routines. I’ve really gotten into yoga (once again) and I really can’t understand why I stopped. It makes a lot of difference in how my body feels, especially my back that isn’t to happy about sitting down on three hour lectures.

How have your January been? Is everything back to normal?

Swedish kärleksmums

Let me introduce you to probably one of the unhealthiest things in history; kärleksmums (it directly translates into love-yummies). But – its also one of the best tasting cakes I know. The combination of the soft, moist cake and the indulgent chocolate frosting is incredible (my mouth waters just writing this) and the coconut on top gives a nice chewiness to it.

Swedish kärleksmums

Ingredients you need to make the cake;
225 g salted butter
1 cup milk
5 large eggs
1,5 tsp vanilla sugar
1,5 cup cacao
3 tsp baking powder
2,5 cup plain flour

150 g salted butter
10 tbsp strong coffee
0,5 cup cacao
2 tbsp vanilla sugar
4 cup icing sugar
0,5 cup shredded coconut

Swedish kärleksmums

Do this;
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Then line a deep baking tray (30×40 cm) with baking paper.

Melt the first 225 g of butter, then add in the milk and set aside to cool down. Beat the egg and sugar white and fluffy (takes forever when you do it by hand so use an electric mixer if you have one).

Sieve the flour, cacao and vanilla sugar and gently fold it in. Add in the butter/milk mixture and fold together until lump-free. Put the mixture in the lined baking tray and bake for 20 min (check if its done with a toothpick). Let it cool down completely before moving on.

Melt the butter in a pan with the coffee, when its all melted, add in the cacao, vanilla sugar and the icing sugar (if it gets really thick – just put it back on over the heat to help melt the sugar). Spread the frosting evenly over the cake, sprinkle the coconut on top and put it in the fridge for an hour to let the frosting set up properly.

Lift it out of the baking tray and cut into squares. Makes around 20 squares depending on how generous you are.

    I am not that generous so I will keep the half for me and divide the rest for my friends. 😀 Maybe this is one of the unhealthiest, but I absolutely love this. I am saving the recipe and I need to make it very soon. I have this bad craving for chocolate these days and I believe this is the answer. 😀 And oh, congrats on the feature. 😉 Happy Fiesta Friday & I wish you have a lovely week ahead. x


    1. Haha, seems to be the right proportions 😉 I believe this will help you with those cravings (or make them worse…), this is one of few cakes that I just can’t resist, I’m more of a cookie girl but this is just to hard not to love. (And thank you, so happy to be featured!) Have a great sunday! xx

    Oh my goodness. I don’t often eat cake, but when I do a small amount of a really good one like this is such a treat. The rest I would share with my friends who would just love me for it.


    1. This one is so worth it for a treat (and will probably make your friends really happy) 🙂
