After requests from several customers we now offer several different types of wooden molds to make authentic Dutch speculaas biscuits, including a small windmill mould, and a man and woman mold.

I am very fortunate that 2012 Great British Bake Off finalist Brendan Lynch has made a speculaas spiced Bundt cake with vandotsch speculaas spice mix.
Brendan’s Spiced Bundt Apple Cake is a longstanding favourite recipe that both family, friends and neighbours frequently ‘request’. So he was keen to try out our spice mix by making his Bundt cake with vandotsch speculaas spiced infused apples.

Speculaas biscuits are a traditional Dutch biscuit. Speculaas Windmill biscuits are world renowned. But why are they so special?
In the Netherlands, almost all speculaas biscuits are made from white (wheat) flour, brown sugar, butter and a speculaas spice mix that include between five to nine different spices. Other 'spicy' biscuits such as speculoos biscuits contains one or only a few spices.
