    brittmarie's Note:

    This is a Swedish cake recipe; I got it from a dear friend who made it at several parties during college and always got rave reviews. Now I'm the one who gets all the credit when I make it : ) My family loves it; I play the "guess-the-secret-ingredient" game (the vinegar) and no one ever has... though they've guessed everything from peanut butter to cheese! I love it because it's relatively "healthy" (no dairy, no eggs, low-fat), while it's still amazingly moist and chocolaty and dense. (You can make it even lower fat if you use only 1/4 C oil and sub. 1/2 C applesauce).

    • 1 -1 1/2 tablespoon milk, of choice (works with regular, soy or rice or whatever) (optional)

      Did this recipe for work for something Swedish "Diversity Day" It was a winner! I used the original peppermint in the glaze and added a little vanilla to it too! Turned out awesome! Oh I also went the low fat version with applesauce so moist and delicious! I will definitely be doing this one again.

      My daughter and I made this cake for a school project. I used a regular 9 x 13 pan and didn't bake for quite as long, just made sure the center springed back. It was DELICIOUS! I added 6 HEAPING tbsp. of cocoa and about 1 1/2 c. of semi-sweet choc. chips. For the glaze, I used the milk, powdered sugar and cocoa. It was chocolately, but I love chocolate, so I thought it was fabulous! Only thing - like other reviews, I found this cake hard to get out of the pan without falling apart. Otherwise, I thought it was the best chocolate cake I had ever made from scratch!

      I made this cake tonight and I have to tell you that it was disgusting. The middle was runny and it tasted like raw cake batter. I know I did everything just the way I should. The reviews I read described it just the way it turned out, but...yuk!!!! those of you who thing that this is a healthy cake...considering the white flour, white it isn't for anyone. Eggs would have been the healthy portion of the recipe. Thanks
