Taaitaai is a chewy kind of Dutch cookie that’s popular during Sinterklaas, a Dutch holiday for children. A lovely spiced cookie with honey and anise.
When I was little my mom already used this classic Dutch speculaas recipe to create cookies with us during Sinterklaas.
This ‘Sinterklaas’ turban cake with pear is extra delicious before of the Dutch speculaaskruiden and amaretto. Also great without decorations.
Sinterklaas is a Dutch holiday, which can’t happen without a large bag of kruidnoten. Homemade they’re even better and it’s also very easy.
A classic Dutch-Indonesian thousand layer cake a.k.a. spekkoek with delicious thin layers of vanilla and spiced cake, absolutely worth it!
