Amsterdam & Romantic Brugge 2
This is a continuation of the post on our Amsterdam/Brugge trip. We came across so many delicious looking cheeses and pastries whilst in Amsterdam that it's a pity that we couldn't try EVERYTHING (tempting though it was!). In one of the cheese shops, we came across a slab of Indonesian Layer Cake. Also known as Specot or Spekkoek, this deliciously spicy cake is made up of many, many thin layers and is highly time consuming to make (it used to take mum about 2 hours in front of the oven to bake one). Each layer of batter is grilled for 2-3 min before the next layer is spread on top of the baked layer and grilled for another 2-3 min. Unfortunately I don't have a photo of this but you can check it out on one of Adam's posts. This particular Indonesian Layer Cake was spicier and more delicious than any other that I had ever tasted before. (Final photo is of Antwerp station).
