Tuppakaka is a Swedish cake. It is very easy to do, but turns out a wonderful cake. Gooey in the middle, and almost like meringue on top.

Wow!! I have to say i was skeptical at first. So easy? So few ingredients? The results were great:) i did take some liberties cut down the sugar to 1c and added a packet of vanilla sugar then a few drops of almond extract. I topped with sliced almonds and a sprinkling of brown sugar and put it under the broiler for a minute after it was done. I wanted to find out if it was good chilled but it didn't last that long.:) thanks for the quick easy and elegant recipe! Read More

hi i tried this cake and although it was quite tasty it turned out a bit like a normal sponge cake. i used ground almonds instead of flakes which probably didn't help it wasn't at all gooey inside. any tips on how to make it better? my oven is an old non-fan-assisted one and i tried compensating by cooking at about 215 degrees c. thanks.

This is a fabulous cake! It is so easy and simple to make and I love the slightly dense moist and crackly meringue top. This recipe is pretty exact and I have found that if I try to mess with this recipe in just about any way it turns into a normal cake without the moistness and meringue top. When I have changed the bread crumbs or mixed too much air into this recipe or tried to half this recipe I am ususally dissappointed (I think halving the egg is tough and too much egg makes it dry). But give this cake a try and be exact the first time through. It is Elegant and fabulous alone or with Breyers French Vanilla Ice cream Hazelnuts and strawberries on the side Read More

I wish there was such thing as 6 stars! This is the easiest recipe I have ever done! I wasn't sure if it was going to work or not because there wasn't very many ingredients. It tured out absolutlely wonderful! I would definetly make this again. The only thing is that it was impossible for me to get it ot of the pan so it fell apart. Read More

Baked this twice. The first time the breadcrumbs all burnt and the cake was overcooked at 25 minutes. But it still tasted good! The second time I omitted teh breadcrumbs and used a greased and floured pan lowered the temp to 375 and baked it for about 22 minutes. It had a much better texture. This is such a simple and exotic cake to make-- i will add it to my list of go-to desserts! Read More

This cake was surprisingly good. Simple too. I added one tsp. of vanilla flavoring. Although I don't normally like almond flavoring I think this would be very good with about a tsp. of almond flavoring. Not what you expect. It seems so simple that it couldn't possibly be good but it was. Very good! Read More
