Rona’s Dutch Almond Boterkoek

Rona brought this to the food bank for our coffee break, and it is absolutely delicious!  I could easily eat half a cake by myself, and I’m not a cake person; it is like a cross between a shortbread and cake texture.

Base:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. almond flavouring
  • 1 and 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  1. Cream butter and sugar. Add egg, and blend until well mixed.  Add the flavouring, and mix well.
  2. In a separate bowl, blend flour and baking powder together.
  3. Gently add the flour/baking powder mixture to the creamed mixture
  4. Spread into two 8″ cake pans.

Topping:

  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 lemon peel, grated.
  1. Mix the topping ingredients together.
  2. Spread topping over base, wetting spoon as necessary.
  3. Sprinkle on:
  • 1/2 pkg. of sliced almonds.
  1. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 25 to 30 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  2. Score while warm into slices.
