Recipe: Super Moist & Rich Fudge-y Brownie Swedish Chocolate Cake

Looks good right? IT IS.



  • 1/2 cup of salted butter (125g) (or use unsalted butter & add 1 tsp of salt)
  • 1 1/3 cups of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of cocoa powder
  • 3 eggs
  • [Optional] 1 tsp of vanilla extract


Butter up a loaf pan (a deep one about 6″ deep) and dust it with flour lightly.

Bowl #1:

Whisk the 3 eggs with the 1 1/3 cups of sugar into a bowl and add the 1 tsp of vanilla extract [Optional]

Bowl #2:

Mix the 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 cup of cocoa powder together


  1. Start the oven warming up at 350 degrees F
  2. Melt the butter gently in  a saucepan (warm it up on the stove then turn it off and let it sit on the warm stove, or take it off completely), and melt it without cooking it.
  3. Add the sugar and eggs from Bowl #1 and mix very well
  4. Slowly add the flour and cocoa powder from Bowl #2 and incorporate it in until you can see very few lumps (try and break them out with the fork or whisk)
  5. Pour the mixture into the loaf pan
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes; once you see the top ‘crack’, that’s how you know it’s done
  7. Take it out of the oven, run a dull knife around the edges, let it cool IN THE PAN and then pop it out on a wire rack to cool
  8. Then. Devour.

I got out of $60,000 of debt in 18 months using Since then, I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K (savings rate = 85%). I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.
