Its now been several months since we wrote our Live Blog all the way from Amsterdam. (Which you can still read here) To bring back some of those fantastic memories we decided to make Dutch Boterkoek (Butter Cake) . So tasty and super simple to make.
210g Caster Sugar
200g NEILL’S® Plain Flour
2tsp Almond Extract
0.5tsp Baking Powder
Preheat oven to 170c
Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth.
Beat in the egg.
Beat in the almond extract.
In a separate bowl sieve the flour and baking powder together.
Fold the flour into the wet mix stirring just enough to combine all ingredients.
Bake in the centre of the oven for 40 mins.
Leave to cool for 10 mins before turning out to cool completely.
Cut into slices and serve.
