Sinterklaas: Chocolade kruidnoten Cake

I have another Sinterklaas recipe to share with typical Dutch ingredients. For this recipe I use chocolate coated kruidnoten in a cake. If you can not get hold of these, please just use a combination of small gingerbread cookies and chocolate chips. It will look different, but taste wise it will be pretty close. The original recipe is from Oh my Foodness.

Chocolade Kruidnoten Cake:
- 200 gr butter
- 250 gr sugar
- 250 gr selfrising flour
- 4 eggs
- 100 gr chocolade kruidnoten (I used a mix of milk, dark and white)

Pre heat the oven to 150 degrees.
Mix the butter with the sugar until creamy. Add in the eggs 1 by 1 and make sure each egg is fully incorporated in the batter before you add the next. Sift in the self rising flour and mix everything together. Do not over mix the batter.
Stir in about 3/4 of the chocolade kruidnoten.

Line a cake tin with a baking sheet and scoop the batter in the tin. Use the rest of the kruidnoten on top of the cake. You can crumble them too if desired. Place it in the oven for about 60-70 minutes, until a toothpick comes out the cake clean. Leave the cake to cool for about 5 minutes before you lift it out of the tin and leave it to cool further.
