Kärleksmums or Love yummies

These cakes are a classic in Sweden and you find the recipe in the great cookbook Swedish cakes and cookies. The name means love yummies, but I have no idea why they have aquired this name. But they are yummy and a lighter subsitute to a brownie. The sponge is moist and the frosting nice and sweet, but it is not dense at all. Just light, fluffy and wonderful!

And if you like me, don’t like coconut in cakes, I promise you that these are still nice. This is the one thing I eat with desiccated coconut on top!

Kärleksmums / Love yummies, 1 oven tray

150 g butter

2 eggs

300 ml caster sugar

2 tsp vanilla sugar

1 tbsp sieved cocoa

450 ml plain flour

2 tsp baking powder

150 ml milk


75 g butter

1 tbsp sieved cocoa

(1-2 tbsp cold coffee) – I omitted this

350 ml icing sugar

desiccated coconut

Melt the butter and leave to cool. Beat eggs and sugar until white and fluffy. Add the dry ingredients, milk and butter in batches to the egg mixture. Incorporate it and pour the batter into a large oven tray, greased and breaded (with breadcrumbs). Bake in a low oven for 15 minutes on 175C.  Meanwhile, melt the butter for the frosting, and add the other ingredients while stirring. Spread the frosting onto the cake and sprinkle coconut on top. Cut into squares and serve.
