If you would ever wonder if there are Dutch things I miss, nothing comes to mind right away. On second thought, there are typically dutch delights that I do miss. A sauna visit would be one of them. And next in line will be food. Hagelslag, Drop and Ontbijtkoek.

Today I will bake an Ontbijtkoek. Its a cake like contraption with a very high sugar content and a typically dutch spice mixture. Cinnamon, Cardamon, Coriander, Ginger, Clovers, Nutmeg, its all in there. No butter or eggs.

When all goes to plan, ginger, sugar and fruity varieties will be next.

What you are not getting is the wonderful smell (think Sinterklaas, kruidnootjes ect)
