This was my second attempt at a Swedish Almond cake. I made it using a special pan that I purchased at the Swedish Institute in Minneapolis. The cake was a hit at our holiday party -- so moist and fragrant!
We had a few Swedes at the party and they did not complain about it, which I took as a positive sign. The only thing I would do differently next time is increase the baking time by a few minutes so the center is more done.

Take note! These individual chocolate cakes are very birthday-worthy. They are very rich with an intense chocolate flavor and not overly sweet. Top them with vanilla ice cream or sweetened whipped cream and a candle for a special adult birthday. Happily they aren't very time consuming to make. You can also make them a few days ahead of time-perfect for a mid-week birthday.
If you prefer one large cake, you can bake the same quantity of batter in a deep pie pan.
