“My mother used to make this Dutch almond-filled spice cake for
special occasions and always at Christmas time. When my grandmother,
Oma, would visit us from Holland, she would expect it with her
coffee. Once, when i went to Holland, for a visit, my aunt served me
some, but it just didn’t taste as good as the one at Oma’s house. I
was told my aunt’s cake was store bought. My mother passed Oma’s
recipe on to me, and now i carry on the tradition.”
