Recipe: Speculaas (Ginger Bread)

Speculaas is a cookie that is mostly eaten in the Netherlands and Belgium as well as some other parts of Europe. In the Netherlands we eat it around November/ beginning of December due to a local celebration called Sinterklaas. This cookie tastes of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and other winter-like flavors.

We posted a ginger bread buttons recipe last year, the taste is somewhat similar to that recipe. You can check it out here.

⏲10-15 minutes
⏳ 30 minutes
🍽 about 10-15 cookies

250 grams of self-raising flour
100 grams of butter
50 grams of (oat) milk
125 grams of brown caster sugar
4 grams of biscuit seasoning
A pinch of salt

How to make it?
Preheat the oven at 175 degrees Celsius. Weight the ingredients and add the flour, salt, spices and sugar in a bowl and mix together. Add the milk and butter and knead the mixture until it’s a bowl of dough. Put some baking paper on a tray and spread the dough until it’s a slice from about 1 centimeter thick. Make sure it’s not to thick. Bake for 30 minutes in the oven and let it cool down before you enjoy it.
