Dutch Butter Cake (Boterkoek)

Dutch Butter Cake (Boterkoek) created by Jostlori

A traditional Dutch cake, similar to shortbread, buttery and flaky, with a hint of almond. Very rich, it should be served in small slices. This dessert is not for dieters! :)

    OMG! So rich and so tasty! The almond really shines in this dense butter cake. It comes together quickly and is so easy to make. I thought it would be a little more gooey, so maybe I left it in the oven a few minutes too long. Regardless, this is super good - would definitely make it again! Thanks for posting - made for SWT 2019 The Traveling Tastebuds.
