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.

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

Cook Time For Cake Only

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 23 min
Ready in: 38 min
Yields: Serves 10 people or more

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.

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

      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 . . .

      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.

      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!

      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!

      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.

      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.

      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?
