Imbolc: Boterkoek

Yes, I am late to the party, because Imbolc was last week. But we made this on the day itself so we were actually perfectly on time ;) Because one of the typical Imbolc foods is butter, I thought this typical Dutch recipe for boterkoek would be a good idea to make. It would translate to buttercake. This boterkoek is much better than the ones we can buy in the stores here. It is best the same day, or the day after. But after that it gets on the dry side. I used a recipe from Laura's Bakery.

- 250 gr flour
- 200 gr sugar
- 200 gr butter
- 8 gr vanilla sugar
- 2 eggs
- pinch of salt

Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees.

Mix the butter and sugar until you have an airy mixture. Add 1 egg and a pinch of salt and mix again. Lastly add the flour and mix once more. Grease a 24 cm springform. Add the dough to the form and make it even with a spoon. Beat the 2nd egg, and use this to coat the dough. You can make a pattern in the dough with a fork.

Place in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Let the boterkoek cool down before you slice it.
