IKEA RADIO No-Bake CAKE Recipe Test | FIka Cookbook
*Happy as Larry music* Greetings my lovelies! Hi, it’s Emmy. Welcome back to another “You Made What?” Today I’ll be making a recipe that I found from this book. Badoom! It’s called “fika” and I actually got it from IKEA of all places. It describes “fika” as a break for coffee and a bite to eat and it’s a cornerstone of Swedish food culture. Beautiful illustrations of the ingredients to make all kinds of sweets. So today’s recipe that I’m going to be sharing with you is this one and it’s something called “Radio Cake”. I chose this recipe because it’s really simple: there’s no baking required, which is great for summer and it uses one of my favorite biscuits which are the round Maria biscuits. And if you like these kinds of recipe tests be sure to subscribe for more makin’! Alright! Let’s go ahead and make this. So, the first thing we are going to do is line our pan with a little bit of plastic wrap — I would suggest actually using foil because it’s a little bit sturdier than the plastic. In a medium bowl we’re gonna have 200 grams of chopped up dark chocolate; and then we’re going to add 200 grams of butter. And then we’re going to melt this in the microwave at thirty second intervals until everything is completely melted. In a separate bowl, we’re gonna crack a couple eggs — and give that a good whisk. Next we’re gonna add three tablespoons of cocoa powder — That’s right! — and 200 milliliters of icing sugar or powdered sugar. Next we’re gonna add a few drops of vanilla extract; and now we’re going to add our melted butter and chocolate mixture. Give this a good mix until everything is well incorporated. To put the cake together, we’re gonna put a layer of our chocolate mixture; and then a layer of our Maria cookies. And keep doing this until we have four layers of cookie finished with one last layer of chocolate. Wrap everything up with plastic wrap; and place in the refrigerator for at least four hours, or overnight. Here’s my Radio Cake. It’s in this tin and I’ve let it sit overnight. And let’s un-mold it. All right, let’s unwrap this. Definitely recommend using foil rather than plastic wrap… because this was not very strong. So, a serrated knife, I thought, would be the way to go but it’s not, so let’s use a regular knife. *chopping sounds” *Happy as Larry music* All right, so now that we have this thing sliced, let’s give it a taste. Itadakimasu! Mmm… “That’s yuuuuummyyy,” as my little son would say. I was thinking the cookies might soften up because this is a refrigerator cake, but they didn’t, so you still have the nice crunch of the Maria biscuit and then you’ve got this really lovely chocolate ganache: it’s really silky and smooth and creamy; and full of dark chocolate flavor; and of course buttery; and it’s sweet, but not overly so which I know I say all the time but I think it’s really important for me when I have chocolate. I like to enjoy the chocolate flavors and I don’t like it when it’s too sweet. And this is perfect — I love it! You still have just the slight bitterness of the chocolate, but that butter goes so nicely with it! Oh, it’s heavenly! So good. This is very, very dense and rich, so I think a tiny slice is more than enough for a serving. And this recipe makes a ton, so it would be great for a party, or something like that. This recipe was a little bit fussier than I thought it was going to be and I think that has something to do with the kind of vagueness of the instructions. So, just be forewarned.
