A deliciously cool and light dessert for hot summer days! And such a rare dish that most Swedes will never have heard about it. This milk pudding is made of silky smooth fresh cheese, served with half-and-half or whipped cream and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. As the nickname Flygin implies (meaning to fly in, in Swedish), it simply slips away as it enters the mouth.

The famous Swedish kladdkaka is a rich, gooey chocolate cake that is served with whipped cream or ice cream. My quick, failproof recipe requires only a pot, a pan and an oven. Deliciously crispy on the outside and depending on how long you bake it, the inside will be gooey or sticky (for kladdkaka) or chewy (for brownies).
Those of us who grew up in Sweden remember these mild, creamy bites sold in most kiosks and cafés. In contrast to the more flavorful chocolate balls, they have a mild flavor of vanilla, coconut and barely there cocoa. Grinding the oatmeal and beating the mixture for several minutes results in the distinguishable soft, airy consistency.
