Author:

I have always loved to bake. I’m a wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, so I do a lot of baking for my family.

Swedish Flop Cake

Cake How-to

Swedish flop cakes are sold in bakeries. Our grocery store has them in their bakery. This cake is very good. I have tried making flop cakes from scratch, and they usually flop. Here is an easier way to make this cake. I over-did it with the powdered sugar; you can use less than I did. The prep time in this recipe is for just the cake. It takes longer to get the filling and the topping ready. It also takes more time cutting the cake in half, moving the bottom half to the cake pan, adding the filling, putting the top half into the cake pan, and then adding the powdered sugar.

Once the cake is done be sure to cover and refrigerate.

Items You Will Need

  1. Cookie Sheet 16 x 11
  2. Oblong Cake Pan 8 x 12
  3. mixer
  4. mixing bowls
  5. measuring spoons
  6. measuring cups
  7. knife
  8. Vegetable spray

Ingredients For The Cake

  • 1 White Cake Mix
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 cup cake flour

Toping

  1. 1/2 cup flour
  2. 1/3 cup sugar
  3. 1/4 cup confectioner sugar (powdered sugar)
  4. 1 tsp. baking powder
  5. 3/4 cup of soft butter

Mix all ingredients together with a fork or knife until crumbly. The topping will go on the top half of your cake.

Cake Instructions

  1. Set egg whites aside for use in filling. Mix all ingredients together for about 3 minutes
  2. Spray a 16 x 11 cookie sheet very well because you will need to get this cake out in two pieces.
  3. Pour cake mixture into cookie sheet. Sprinkle with the topping on half of the cake mixture. Bake for 23 minutes at 350. Use a toothpick to make sure the cake is done.
  4. Cool cake completely. When cooled cut in half and remove bottom half and place in the 8 x 12 cake pan. Spread filling on top of the bottom half and spread around. Add the top half of the cake and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Refrigerate for one hour before eating.

Filling

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • Beat until stiff peaks form add sugar and beat a little longer until mixed. Set aside.
  • 1/4 cup of dry vanilla pudding (right from the box)
  • 1/4 cup of confectioners sugar
  • 1 cup whipping cream

Instructions

  1. In a mixer bowl, beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in with egg mixture.
  2. Place filling on bottom half of cooled cake. By the time filling is made, the bottom half of the cake has been placed in the cake pan, add the filling on top of that. Place top on the bottom half.
  3. 1/4 cup confectioner sugar to sprinkle on top of the cake when all steps are done.

All Three Layers on Platter

If you don't want to put this cake in an oblong cake pan, you can just put it on the a large platter or plate and do all three layers the same way.

Made it and loved it. Reminded me of sweet home, Chicago.

Helayna on May 15, 2020:

Why did my crumbles just turn to goo and then cause my cake to look like craters were all over half?

Mary on July 27, 2017:

How do I make the Strawberries

renee51 on May 15, 2016:

is the filling suppose to be runny

C E Clark from North Texas on February 29, 2016:

This is such a delicious cake! And so easy to make.

Spring has sprung here in North Texas. Trees are just beginning to blossom and soon there will be flowers everywhere. I love a nice long Texas spring when the temperature is moderate and everything gets green and lush and profuse with flowers.

I've heard winter is still up north. Hopefully your spring is just around the corner. Hope you got your car lights corrected. Take care . . .

PegCole17, Thank you for reading and for pinning. I appreciate your comments.

moonlake (author) from America on January 21, 2016:

CraftytotheCore, Thanks so much for coming. If we could only taste the food we see on screen.

moonlake (author) from America on January 21, 2016:

Peggy W , Thank you for coming by and for the pin. I'm only 2 years late with my comment to you.

Maria on November 05, 2015:

Never heard of "Swedish flop cake" (and never heard of the type of cake). Maybe it's because I'm Swedish?

Sometimes i make a cake with egg yolks in the cake and meringue and almonds on top. I cut in half after cooled and lay berries and whipped cream in the middle.

Jeannoula on November 27, 2014:

Can't wait to try this! I love the one from the bakery. Quick question...do I use just the pudding mix, or do i make the pudding ahead of time and measure out 1/4 cup? Thanks!

RTalloni on September 26, 2014:

A neighbor enjoys enjoying food from her Swedish roots. This would be a neat recipe to make for her, and then I'll share where it came from with her!

Peg Cole from Northeast of Dallas, Texas on July 31, 2014:

Any kind of cake is my favorite and this one sounds super delicious. I like taking an ordinary box mix and adding extra ingredients to make it special. This one is the kind of recipe that should be in the Pillsbury bake off cookbook. Nicely illustrated and explained. Pinning this.

CraftytotheCore on October 25, 2013:

I've never heard of this but it looks amazing and delicious! It reminds me of having a get-together and serving it for brunch or tea time. I can taste it through the screen. Great Hub!

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on June 04, 2013:

Going to pin this to my cakes and sweet breads board and will share this delicious sounding recipe. We used to know a lady who was Swedish. Bet she would have loved this.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on June 14, 2012:

Like others, I had never heard of Swedish Flop Cake. With the pudding filling, I bet it is tasty. Actually...anything you would put on that gorgeous china pattern would look good! That was the first thing I noticed. It is a family heirloom? If not...it will be someday! Thanks for your recipe and good luck in the contest. Voted up!

Derdriu on June 05, 2012:

Moonlake, What an attractive, delicious, fragrant bit of heaven this treat must be! In particular, I like how you pace the instructions, such as coordinating the cooled bottom with the completed filling.

What do you recommend for drinks?

Respectfully, and with many thanks and Up + UFABI for sharing, Derdriu

rahul0324, If you were my neighbor I would sure make some for you or give you half of what I have made. There's only two in my house so it will take a bit for us to eat all this large cake. Thanks, so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Jessee R from Gurgaon, India on May 27, 2012:

I have screams from my belly... yelling at me to try this!

Wish you were my neighbour :))))

LaThing, It is good. Thanks so much for stopping by I appreciate it.

moonlake (author) from America on May 27, 2012:

mary615, Thanks Mary, I fixed the cake flour. Yes, it does take longer to make the whole cake but they only will let me add prep and cook time for one item so I did the cake. The cake is just a box cake so it can be thrown together fast. It does take longer to do the filling. The topping you can do while the cake is mixing. I explained a little clearer in the hub, I guess I hadn't done that.

Claudia Tello from Mexico on May 27, 2012:

This Swedish Flop Cake looks very good and has an attractive home-made-style. I think my mom will love it!

LaThing from From a World Within, USA on May 27, 2012:

Great recipe! Never heard of Swedish Flop cake, but this sure looks good! Will be trying it soon.

Sharing, and awesome....

Mary Hyatt from Florida on May 27, 2012:

This looks so good! I never heard of an Easy Swedish Flop Cake before. I see in your prep time 15min. I'm just thinking as I read your instructions, this has to take a long time to prepare because of all the steps. I think it would take me longer than 15 min. but you know what? I'm trying this recipe today. I voted it useful and interesting. There is NO UP on this new format that I can see. I'm going to share this on FB and with followers, too. Wish me luck! BTW: on list of ingredients, I see "one cake flour". Should that be one cup cake flour in addition to the box of cake mix?
