this is the most common swedish cake, so if you havn´t baked it, it´s about time!
it is a simple recipe, so everyone can make it. you can use this recipe to make cupcakes, muffins and other things, just use your imagination. 
my mom use to make sockerkaka and then after baking it she would poor a mixture of melted butter, milk and vanilla extract on top of it (it need to be warm). then she would sprinkled some coconut flakes on top. it really makes the sockerkaka even more delicious.
you should try it.

                     found this picture on my favorite blog: http://sotasaker.com/
2 ägg                                                          2 eggs
2 1/2 dl socker                                            a little bit more then 1 cup sugar 
100g smör                                                   1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 dl vatten                                            a little bit more then 1/2 cup water
2 tsk vaniljsocker                                         2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 dl vetemjöl                                              1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 dl potatismjöl                                       1/4 cup cornflour, there is´nt any potato flour in the states.
2 tsk bakpulver                                           2 teaspoons baking powder
1. use regular butter or ”pam” to butter you sockerkaksform/ baking pan. 
2. preheat the owen to 200 degrees celsius/392 degrees fahrenheit. 
3. mix egg, sugar and vanilla extract with a hand mixer. keep mixing until the dough is fluffy and smooth (this is important). during this time, melt butter on the stove or in the microwave, should be brought to a boil). 
4. mix flour and baking powder, in a separate bowl.
5. mix the boiling butter with the egg-dough and poor in the flour mixture as well (don´t use the hand mixer). poor the dough into the sockerkaksformen/baking pan and bake the sockerkaka in the owen for about 30 minutes (depending on how fast your owen is). to know that the cake is done use a match or a wooden toothpaste and stick it into the cake, if the dough doesn´t get stuck on the match, the sockerkaka is done. 
6. turn the sockerkaksformen around over a plate so you get the cake out from the baking tray. 
by the way... this is what a sockerkaksform looks like, i don´t know what it´s called here in the states?! 
this is a design by anders pette and can be found at cervera.
