Kruid cake is a staple in Dutch homes. I'm not sure how do describe the taste; sort of.. cinnamony. I got this mix out of a Homecoming gift basket I got from a friend when I arrived....
I was pretty blown away. She knows I love to bake and got me started in my new kitchen and it's helping me get familiar with some of their products.
Anyways.. I'm making the kruid cake, but I'm going to touch it up a notch with maybe some whipped cream or vla. Oh.. I haven't talked about vla yet.
I have a new love. And it is called vla ("fla").
Vla is like a custard-type pudding. I eat the non-dairy soy kind and it is FAB0U-LOUS. W. has some "slagroom vla" (whipped cream vla) in the fridge, but I like mine better. Oooh... maybe I'll put some of that with my kruid cake.
The Dutch, btw, believe in having dessert after dinner. Every. Single. Day. While my tastebuds delight, my waistline does not. This is going to be a challenge. Be forewarned if you ever visit; you WILL be stuffed with some sort of sugary-goodness post-feast :P
It won't let me upload pic of finished kruid cake, so it'll have to wait. Sorry :)
I gotta get outta the heat.
