This French delicacy looks impressive even though it is far from a thousand layers (mille means thousand in French). In Sweden we simply call it pancake cake and offers a more festive way of serving crêpes with whipped cream and jam. Perfect for summer when friends and relatives visit.

My mom calls this Donald Duck cake, but it is better known as Pinocchio cake. I do not know what Disney characters have to do with it, but it is a popular cake in Sweden. It is the perfect summer cake; easy to make and serves many. The cake comprises a sponge topped with meringue and flaked almonds that is layered with whipped cream and fresh berries. Yum!!!
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).
