Honigkoek, also known as Dutch Honey Cake, is a classic recipe from Northern Europe. This rich, sweet cake has a flavor that is reminiscent of honey, cloves, molasses, and other seasonal spices. It is dense. This substantial loaf can be used as a treat for several adults or as a weeklong snack for a couple. It is better to slice, toast, and spread butter (or honey butter, for those of you who want to gild the lily) on the cake rather than eating it by itself. This dish is one to relish because of the overtones of spice and caramelized sugar when it is reheated.

Dutch Breakfast Cake is a wonderful balance of sweetness and spice. A wonderful snack cake that is great for breakfast or as a treat in the afternoon. With a cup of tea or coffee, a piece of honey cake is the ideal accompaniment.
