ONTBIJTKOEK, or Dutch Breakfast Cake.
Another breakfast treat for Matt, ONTBIJTKOEK, from Perfect Cakes.
Didn't take much to sell this cake to Matt...cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, brown sugar and crystallized ginger! Some of his favorite things...
Also included, of course...flour, baking powder, and milk.
Bake, cool, then cover in plastic wrap overnight. According to the recipe, if you skip this step the cake will be rubbery. Hmm...perhaps they shouldn't have created a recipe with potential for rubberiness?
Anyway; Matt enjoyed the cake. Said it was very dense. However, in the future, we will not be putting the chopped crystallized ginger in the batter. He says it too drastically changes the texture of the ginger. We might consider scattering some on the top, but not inside.
