Swedish Chocolate Cake

 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Shortening
  • 1 1/2 c Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 oz Baking chocolate
  • -(unsweetened), melted
  • 2 c Cake flour
  • 2 ts Baking powder
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Baking soda
  • 1 c Cream, heavy
  • 2 ts Vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a Bundt pan and sprinkle with about
2 T 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


* 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.

: Difficulty: easy to moderate.
: Time: 20 minutes preparation, 1 hour baking.
: Precision: measure carefully.
