I went to a little bakery in Carol Stream, IL a few weeks ago..called Sauers Bakery. I bought something called a swedish flop. It was SO incredible that I went back the next day and bought one to bring home with me. They don't have a website..and don't ship their products and they're too far for me to drive often (4 1/2 hours).

I've looked it up on the internet (epicurious, ect.) and have only found one recipe. I tested it..not even close to the same taste. So, I was wondering if anyone had a recipe for this in their own private collection that they would share? TIY.

What about calling the bakery? Not to ask for their TOP SECRET recipe or anything icon_biggrin.gif just asking about the origin or a similar cake, etc... sometimes they are willing to help. Emphasize that you simply don't live close enough, etc...

The worst they can say is No..... icon_lol.gif

I found this and since it referred to a city in IL I didn't know if it was different then the epicurious one...


I have reviewed the recipe on file for "swedish flop" however-what I grew up with was like a danish pastry with the filling-Carpentersville-Il
Charles Bakery-The Jewell in Huntley has a product they call swedish flop-it's similiar but not anywhere as good. I have searched for the last 30 years since moving away-can anybody out there help?????
Swedish Flop

1 pkg. dry yeast
1/4 c. warm water
1/2 c. butter or margarine
2 c. sifted flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 egg yolks, beaten
1/4 c. milk, scalded and
cooled to lukewarm
1 tsp. vanilla

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Meanwhile cut butter into flour, mixed with salt. Add the yeast dissolved, egg yolks, milk and vanilla. Mix well; cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Spread mixture in a well-greased 8-inch square pan; spread topping over cake. Cover and let rise in warm place for 1 hour. Bake cake in preheated 350 degrees oven for 35 minutes. Remove and cool. Split cake in half to make 2 layers; fill with filling.

1/4 c. butter or margarine
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Mix ingredients until crumbly.

3 Tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. butter or margarine
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix together flour and salt. Stir in milk; cook, stirring constantly until thickened like paste. Cool. Beat together butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy; then gradually beat into the cooled milk mixture. The milk must be cooled completely for this to work. Mixture should be creamy.


Sorry if that is just like the one you have icon_smile.gif
