Love Mums – Kärleksmums


This type of cake reminds me of when I was little, since it was one of the first things my friends and I learned how to make! It’s still as good today, and is very easy to make, the glaze makes the cake crazy moist, and gives it a great coffee taste. If you don’t like coffee, the coffee can be left out!
