Its now been several months since we updated our Amsterdam Live Blog from our last visit. (Which you can still read here) To bring back some of those fantastic memories we decided to make Dutch Boterkoek. So tasty and super simple to make.
Boterkoek is a simple, traditional yet delicious Dutch cake. The cake itself, as the the name suggests contains a high proportion of butter. The Dutch love showcasing their amazing dairy products in their cooking and this is no exception. The cake is dense and flavoursome with richness coming from the butter and the amazing flavours from the almond extract. Because of the wonderful flavours already incorporated into the cake we prefer this cake served as is, no almond paste or frosting. A wonderful Dutch classic.
