Boterkoek - Dutch Butter Cake

Dutch Cuisine is well known for its simple dishes with many vegetables and little meat. Dutch cuisine means Netherlands cuisine and their foods are not well known as other International cuisines like French,American or Chinese,but there are many Dutch delights which you must try atleast once in your kitchen.Those delicious Dutch foods includes Poffertjes, the small,fluffy pancakes traditionally consumed during fall and winter,Bitterballen the deep fried snack balls typically served with mustard sauce as dipping,Stroopwafels, a delicious chewy cookie,Oliebollen the popular doughnuts,Limburgse Vlaai, a delicious pie with a tasty light crust, Patat the Dutch style french fries etc and the list goes on. I always want to make their utterly delicious super buttery cake ' the famous Boterkoek'. Finally i got a chance to give a try to this incredible bake as this month's  International Food Challenge ,a monthly event started by  wonderful food blogger Sara goes Dutch Cuisine.

Boterkoek,Dutch Butter Cake
Coming to this Super buttery cake, this cake is seriously very easy to make.This cake is traditionally made in a round baking tin and have characteristic lines on the surface which makes this cake top little crispy once baked. However this cake is simple, just put all the ingredients together and bake this cake. You can also half the flour with grounded almonds or dessicated coconut to give a different flavor to this beautiful,fabulous cake.I baked mine in a round pie pan with removable base which helped a lot to remove this cake easily from the tin.
