Traditional Swedish coffee maker made “Äggatårta” (=egg cake)

Aaaw, the “Äggatårta” (=egg cake) brings back so many beautiful memories. It’s a very traditional Swedish recipe and I don’t remember any christmas, midsummer, period party, wedding, easter or birthday without the Äggatårta. Since easter is just around the corner I will now show you how to cook an Äggatårta with your coffee maker. Do I need to tell you that the higher Äggatårta the better..?

If you don’t know how to serve your ugly eggs on your uninspiring easter table… Serve them like this.

Cooking with your coffee maker


  • Depends on how high you want to make it. This one took 5 hours. Worth every second.


(for the Äggatårta in this post)

  • 11 eggs
  • Lots of mayonnaise
  • Lots of Kalles kaviar (oh, you’ll probably have to import that one, right?)
  • Pepper
  • Butter


This Äggatårta is build by hard boiled and turned over eggs, glued with mayonnaise and then decorated with the Kalles kaviar.

Put six of the eggs in the coffee maker carafe and pour water into the coffee brewer. Start your coffee maker. The eggs have to be hard boiled so I coffee maker cooked them for almost 1½ hour (just to be super sure (well, I also might have forgot about them for a while…)). Pour off the warm water, dunk them in some cool water and shell them.

Melt butter directly on the heater. Crack an egg on it and fry it pretty hard on both sides. It takes about 30 minutes to make a turned over egg. The Äggatårta in the picture got four turned over eggs. Since it’s important that all of the turned over eggs are perfectly round and have the same size, the coffee maker heater is the perfect weapon of choice for this, even though it takes some time. Turn off the coffee maker when you’re done.

Construction time! Divide all the hard boiled eggs in half, except for one. Put a turned over egg on a plate. Place three egg halves onto the turned over egg. Glue them together with mayonnaise and season with pepper. Go on like that until you place the last turned over egg. Now you’ll have one whole egg, and one egg half left. Shred the whole egg and top nicely with the thin egg slices.And now decoration time – aka Kalles kaviar time! String a lot of caviar over the whole cake. Put the last egg half on top and decorate with even more Kalles. Yum!

Now, let’s get this easter party started!

Open faced easter sandwiches

cooking with your coffee maker


  • 2 hours


(approx. 6 sandwiches)
  • 12 eggs (6 eggs for decoration)
  • 1 dl mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 carrot
  • Some ham
  • Horseradish
  • A dash of lemon juice
  • Caprice
  • 1 avocado
  • A couple of radishes
  • 1 tsp of Scanian mustard (or some other kind if you’re not from Skåne and have a scanian mustard addiction like I do)
  • Chives
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Lettuce
  • Bread
  • Butter
  • Beetroot salad


Place eggs in coffee maker can, water into the brewer and start your coffee maker. Cook until the eggs are very hard boiled – at least for a good hour. Meanwhile peel, grate, chop and slice all of the other ingredients. Drain water and put the eggs in cold water for a short while. Turn off coffee maker. Crack egg shells and carefully peel the eggs. Mix eggs with the other ingredients (except for salad, bread, butter and beetroot salad).

Butter a slice of bread, add egg/ham salad, place a couple of lettuce leaves and finish with the egg decor. I made a little egg baby bunny and a chick. The ears of the bunny is a sliced carrot, the nose a piece of radish, the eyes are caprices and chives for whiskers. For the chick I cut a jagged line around the top of the egg. Be sure just to cut the white part of the egg so that it will look like it’s hatching. For eyes I used red onion and the beak and feet are pieces of carrots.

This is my favorite decoration. A cutesie little baby bunny that just got her head blown off. The brain substance is beet root salad.
