Hi

Do any of you have a recipe for a swedish flop coffee cake?  It is a coffee cake dough covered in crunchy streusel that is split and filled with buttercream.

I did an internet search and got nothing usable.  Maybe someone knows of another name for this coffeecake.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,
I’d never heard of this cake before, but did a search online and found this recipe. Hope it’s of some use!

Swedish Flop

1 package dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 cups sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 egg yolks, beaten
1/4 cup milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm
1 teaspoon vanilla

Filling:
3 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Topping:
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Meanwhile, mix flour and salt, then cut
butter into the flour. Add the dissolved yeast, egg yolks, milk and vanilla.
Mix well—cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
2. Meanwhile, make Topping: Combine butter, brown sugar and cinnamon until
crumbly in a small bowl. Set aside.
2. Spread mixture in a well-greased 8-inch square pan—spread topping over
cake. Cover and let rise in warm place for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
and bake dough for 35 minutes. Remove and cool.
3. Meanwhile, make Filling: Mix together flour and salt in a saucepan. 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.
3. Split cake in half to make 2 layers—fill with filling, then replace top
layer of cake.

thank you,

This sounds like it except I think it will need a different topping.  The one we get was usually covered in a very crunchy streusel.  Maybe one of the ones with flour in it.  Will let you know how it turns out!
