Recipe by Allison
"A decadent Dutch cake that's super easy to stir up and a perfect complement to a cup of tea or coffee. It's actually more like a soft cookie than a cake but definitely delicious nonetheless."

I brought this to a family dinner. It was delicious. However, my DH was expecting something gooey. This is what he remembered butter cake as from his childhood. This cake is not gooey. It is rich, flaky & buttery. Delicious.
I've made this twice now, once back in February and then again today. It is an alright accompaniment to a cup of tea but not something I would make for company or serve on its own.
Sooo good. A little sugar on top would be good for next time. I haven't had this in a long time and it came out exactly like I remembered it. I baked it for right about 35min and it browned nicely :) Thanks for the great recipe! My husband tried it today and liked it, too. It's just how he remembers it being. His grandparents are Dutch immigrants.
This Dutch Treat is DELICIOUS! It tastes like I used Almond Paste, but without the hassle and expense.I make this ALL the time. Don't even think of using margarine. It is quick and tasty. I usually brush the top with milk or egg whites. I've made it in the pie plate, sliced in wedges, and in a square pan, and cut into small bars. It is ALWAYS a hit!
Very Good. Even my husband who does not generally like Almond flavor really liked this. The texture (for me atleast) was more cookie like, but absolutely delicious! I may try different flavors next time, like vanilla instead of almond.
This is AMAZING! Incredibly easy and such a great taste. A wonderful change from the standard cakes... I cooked for exactly 35 minutes and it was perfectly done. Please note the sides turned a golden brown but the top does not brown up so don't use that as your measure :) This stays at the top of my recipe box.
LOVED this- thanks so much for the recipe! My husband's family is Dutch, and when he tasted this, he said it reminded him of his grandmother-- best compliment ever :) thanks again!
Wow!! This was GREAT! I have never had this kind of cake before but chose it because my husband and I love almond flavoring. I didn't change a thing. I only cooked it for the least amount of time suggested, 30 min., due to all the reviews saying it dries out and it was perfect. If you don't like almond flavoring then I would imagine it would taste just as good with whatever extract you like. It is just as it is described, a cross between a cookie and a cake.
