Silvia cake is a traditional Swedish sponge cake consisting of a fluffy vanilla sponge topped with a sweet glaze – a cake favoured by many here in Sweden and just happens to make an ideal Easter cake recipe. Frida has garnished the Silvia cake with colourful sprinkles that give it extra crunch and a pop of spring colour. You could also choose to top your cake with fresh berries or even let the delicious glaze speak for itself!

2. MERINGUE CAKE WITH COCONUT & FRESH BERRIES

A meringue cake is a classic all year round here in Sweden – it is served at Christmas, midsummer and now at Easter. Frida's meringue cake is a simple Easter recipe where the star of the show is coconut. The cake is decorated with fresh berries. Choose to decorate your Easter cake with Easter eggs or grated chocolate.

Serves 10-12

Storage/shelf life: Will keep for 2 days in the refrigerator.

Ingredients:

Meringue:

  • 4 egg whites
  • 170g caster sugar
  • 50g desiccated coconut

Garnish:

  • 400ml whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoons of vanilla essence
  • 200g raspberries - fresh or thawed
  • 300g fresh berries

How to:

  1. Set the oven to 125°C top/bottom heat and line a tray with baking paper.
  2. Beat the egg whites until stiff, then add sugar a little at a time while constantly beating. Beat until you get a stiff, glossy meringue.
  3. Turn in 40g of coconut being careful not to knock out the air and spread the batter on the tray. Then sprinkle over the remaining coconut (10g). Bake in the middle of the oven for approx. 40-50 minutes. Carefully lift it with a spatula - if it releases from the paper it's ready, otherwise it needs to be baked for a while longer.
  4. Turn off the oven and let the meringue cool completely while the oven cools.
  5. Whip the cream until light and fluffy, mash the raspberries and stir them together with the vanilla essence into the cream.
  6. Spread the cream over the meringue base and top with fresh berries and chocolate if you are using.
