Ontbijtkoek

An ‘ontbijtkoek‘  is a Dutch spiced cake. The spices I used are cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, cloves, coriander and white pepper. You can find the recipe for Speculaas Kruiden‘ here. It is best eaten sliced with butter on top. Yum!!

Place in the oven and bake for 60 minutes at 175 degrees Celsius, set oven back to 130 degrees Celsius and bake for another 15 minutes.

Remove the 'ontbijtkoek' from the loaf pan and wrap it in aluminum foil when it's still warm.

Notes

I wrap it straight from the oven in aluminium foil for at least 24 hours to get that characteristic sticky crust.
