And then we have Boterkoek… What? Butter cake. This is a traditional Dutch recipe, somewhere between a tart and shortbread. It’s got lots of butter and has an almond/vanilla flavour. Buttercake is just like it sounds: a dense, buttery, sweet cake that sticks to your ribs. Usually served with a steaming cup of coffee, boterkoek is served in small squares or tiny slices. The cake is heavy and rich, and usually a small piece suffices to please a sweet tooth.
