Have you heard of the Swedish semlor, a cardamom bun filled with almond paste and whip cream? The semlor (plural) is so popular so it even exists a special day for this pastry, the Tuesday between Shrove Monday and Ash Wednesday. This is a modified version of the original semla made in to a big soft cake that still taste like a real semla.

A homemade Swedish radio cake that doesn't require the oven for cooking. This is a cake of dark chocolate and biscuits. The name radio cake comes from the cake's appearance of an old radio from the fifty´s and also because you could eat it without disturbing the rest of the family while listening to a radio broad cast...
If you go to a Swedish Coffee shop you most probably will find this traditionally Swedish coffee bread. It is made of almond paste bottom, have a chocolate filling, and then dipped in chocolate. If you have an urge for chocolate and like sweet cookies this is the number one choice to make. The best part is that it is easy and fast to do, and will impress your guests.
During Christmas time in Sweden Gingerbread is a given in almost every house. This is a combination of both soft cake and cookies at the same time. It is fun to try to make the decoration differently every year. This one has a sprinkled Christmas tree with cinnamon powder on top.
