Dammsugare (Vacuum Cleaner?!)

Another sweet monday. Vacuum cleaner?

Well, that’s english word for dammsugare. And just so you know, I won’t give you the recipe how to make real vacuum cleaner, I’m not that clever ๐Ÿ˜›

Not much information you can find about this sweet in wiki. But according to hubby, he said because it looks like old style vacuum cleaner. And I think this sweet is very Swedish, I’m sure you can find it in IKEA if you want to try it.

Actually dammsugare or punschrulle contain arak which made from alcohol. So, I didn’t put any arak in it. It did change the taste, said hubby. Because that arak made the signature taste of dammsugare. But it still nice though ๐Ÿ™‚ You can of course add punsch or arak in it if you want.

I took the recipe from my favourite Swedish celebrity chef. She had lots of very Swedish recipes in that website. Most of them quite simple. Doesn’t matter if it’s written in Swedish, we have lots of fancy translator these days ๐Ÿ˜€

I made this from my left over birthday cake. Once the cake baked, you can store in the freezer for up to 3 months. It’s ok. And last time me and hubby watched the cooking show, hubby said “I don’t mind if you make those sometime”. Of course I have to make it for him when he said something like that. Beside, I have lots of left over cake anyway. And I always like to make things he wants to eat. ๐Ÿ™‚


50g butter (room temperature)

10 cupcakes or 22 cm cake crumbs (vanilla)

2 tsp cocoa powder (skip this if you use chocolate cake)

Arak (optional)

300g green marzipan

100g dark chocolate

Icing sugar for dusting

How to:

– In a large bowl, add in cake crumbs and butter. Mix well by hand.

– Add cocoa powder and arak.

– Form the mixture into long cylinder and wrap it in plastic wrap, set it in the fridge for 15 minutes.

– Meanwhile, roll green marzipan into 2 cm thick, use icing sugar to dust so it won’t stick to the table or to the rolling pin.

– Cut it into long strips, wide enough to cover the roll.

– Melt dark chocolate in microwave for 10 to 20 seconds.

– Take the roll from the fridge, cover with marzipan. Cut it into 5cm long. And dip the edges in melted chocolate then put them back to the fridge until the chocolate set. Serve.

      But I’m sure you’ve heard the real vacuum cleaner right? ๐Ÿ˜›
      Try to find them in IKEA in your country, I’m sure they have it ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I have a special relationship with the vacuum cleaners. The dessert that is; the real thing is not my best friend, to be honest. ๐Ÿ™‚ Whenever I visit my grandpa and aunt in Sรถdertรคlje, these are served along with coffee and fizzy drinks. My all-time favorites!

    • I don’t think anyone wants to be a real vacuum cleaner best friend hehehe ๐Ÿ˜€
      My husband also like them very much…. Unfortunately I’m not a big fan, but they sure look cute, I think ^^

A nice comment will make my day ^^
