This spiced cake is filled with homemade almond paste, a bit coarser than marzipan, somewhat like frangipane. This cake is traditionally eaten in wintertime in the Netherlands, especially around Sinterklaas (5th December). It's rich, sweet and delicious!
Use this recipe for real Dutch speculaas spice mix, or substitute with mixed spice for a slightly different flavour.
