Kladdkaka is in Sweden normally eaten with vanilla sauce, whipped cream and home-made jam. But you can also eat it along side fresh strawberries and melted butter or even boiled fresh carrots. The word Kladdkaka comes from swedish words kladd which means smear/smudge and Kaka which means cake.

It is often associated with family gatherings or special occasions such as weddings and christenings.
