Speculaas, dutch spiced biscuit. Traditionally the dutch eat this biscuit around the 5th of December together with warm chocolate milk. Also taste very nice with coffee !


  1. Combine the cake flour, brown sugar, all spice and salt.
  2. Cut butter into pieces and mix into the flour in a food processor.
  3. Add milk and you should now have a firm dough ball.
  4. Wrap the dough in clingfilm and allow to rest in a cool place for atleast 2 hours, but preferably for a day to draw out the spice flavour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees celcius, roll out the dough into a rectangle about 1cm thick.
  6. Place this onto a lined baking tray and bake the spiced biscuit in the oven for about 30 minutes until done.
  7. Cool the biscuit on a wire rack.
  8. To serve: Break the biscuit into pieces and serve with warm chocolate milk.
