vandotsch speculaas cake is a 'classic' Dutch recipe traditionally made for Sint Nicolas day in The Netherlands (December 5th). It's very easy to make and just Yummy!
Obviously, there is no reason why you can't make this cake all year round. I for one do. By the way '"Gevulde" means stuffed, normally with almond paste, for which I have a separate recipe.

vandotsch speculaas spice almond paste is based on the traditional Dutch almond paste. But, it include vandotsch speculaas spice mix, for extra 'kick'. You will be happily surprised.
Almond paste is primarily used in speculaas cake in The Nethaerlands. It is also used as filling in fruited Christmas - Kerststol - and Easter breads - Paas brood.

Jenny Linford the well-known London freelance food writer came over to Highgate to interview me.
What is speculaas spice? What are speculaas biscuits? Why did I set up the Speculaas Spice Company. How the discovery of my Dutch grandmother's sweet tasting spice mix late 2014 changed my life. Plans for the near future.

My name is Steven Dotsch and I was born in Amsterdam in the 'fifties'.
My love for speculaas biscuits began at a young age when growing up in Amsterdam. In those days kids were given home baked speculaas biscuits 'sandwiched' in butter creamed sandwiches to eat at school, at break-time.
