Oma's Boterkoek (Dutch Buttercake)

Oma's Boterkoek (Dutch Buttercake) created by Jessiica

This is Boterkoek (Dutch Buttercake) just like my Oma (grandma) used to make. She passed away over a year ago now and I really started to crave it. I hope you like it as much as I did growing up! :)

ingredients

directions

  • In medium bowl, mix together butter, sugar and almond extract.
  • Add beaten egg except for 1 teaspoon.
  • Sift flour and baking powder, and add to bowl, mixing with wet ingredients.
  • Put dough in greased 9 inch pie plate.
  • Mix the reserved 1 tsp of beaten egg with 1 tsp of water, and brush over dough.
  • Sprinkle with sliced almonds, if desired. (My Oma always used the almonds, it looks pretty and adds a nice touch!).
  • Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes or until done (firm to the touch).
  • This is a dense cake, but should be soft on the inside and hard on the outside, but not too hard!

    Sorry, it's Boterkeok, BUTTER cake, not Margarine cake, use what you like but Margarine is a horrible product :(

    This tastes just like my Oma's recipe. I decorate them differently everytime. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe.

    A counter to the reviews posting the equal parts sugar to flour and butter. I've made this recipe twice trying to get it to do so, with both chilled and room temperature butter, but the batter never cooked evenly, crisping up at the edges, while the middle remained a bubbly liquid for 20-30 minutes. In addition, if you use pop-able pie tins, the butter will leak, everywhere. The addition of flour in slightly higher proportions evens out the liquids balance and causes it to bake evenly. A family favorite, no matter your preferred measurements!

    My son has made this before but I didn't have the recipe. I found this one and used the suggestion to use 1.5 c butter with 1.5 c. flour and made sure not to over bake. It turned out delicious and goes great with my morning tea on this snowy morning! I am from Dutch ancestry so remember having delicious things like this when I was younger!
