Introduction: Swedish Sugar Cake / Sockerkaka

The most traditional cake in Sweden for fika. Its fluffy and just sets the mood for the whole weekend.

Step 1: Heat Oven

Put it on 175°C, 350°F

Step 2: Equipment

What you need:
*A rounded cake pan
*Butter for covering cake pan
*Indefinite amount of bread crumbs
*A Bowl
*3 Eggs
*1.2 cups of Sugar
*A Whisker
*1.2 cups of Flour
*2 tsp of Baking powder
*2 tsp of Vanilla powder
*A Spatula
*50 grams of Butter
*A spoon of Lemon drops (optional)

Step 3: Cake Pan

Butter the cake pan so the cake comes out after baking. Put bread crumbs in the cake pan and shake it around so everything's covered.

Step 4: Eggs

Crack 3 eggs into a bowl

Step 5: Sugar

Add 1.2 cups of sugar. Whisk it together with the eggs. The dough should be whisked for so long so it gets white.

Step 6: Flour, Baking Powder, Vanilla Powder

Add 1.2 cups of flour, 2 tsp of baking powder, 2 tsp of vanilla powder in the same bowl. Mix it around and put it in the main bowl. Blend everything with a spatula.

Step 7: Butter

Microwave 50 grams of butter for 1 minute so it melts. Put it in the bowl and mix.

Step 8: Lemon Drops

Add a spoon of Lemon drops. This is to give it a taste of lemon. This is optional, you don't have to do this.

Step 9: Fill Cake Pan

Add everything into the cake pan.

Step 10: Bake

Shove it in the oven for a good 39 minutes.

Step 11: Cool Down

When it has baked. Flip it over on a board and let it be there for 30 minutes to cool down.

Step 12: Done.

Remove the pan from the cake and put it on a fancy plate. Now it's done. Enjoy!

What is the taste of this cake?

If you add the Lemon drops, it gives a taste of lemon. Without it, it tastes like a fluffy bread-like cake with the crumbed bread. It's hard to explain but it's very enjoyable. :)
