Dutch Suikerbrood

Suikerbrood {by Icing-Sugar.net}

For the upcoming long weekend I have something sweet and simple for your breakfast table: Suikerbrood, which is Dutch and means sugar bread. It is originally from Friesland, a region up north in the Netherlands.

I have already shown you several Austrian recipes (here, here, here and here) from my Austrian heritage but never did I show anything from my Dutch side. Until now.

Since we live in Switzerland my boyfriend and I are actually missing some Dutch products and my boyfriend especially loved the Suikerbrood back in the Netherlands. Every time his parents are visiting they bring us Suikerbrood to enjoy, but obviously this enjoyment is short-lived. So I got started and tried several times to get my own version of this typical Dutch treat. My end version might not be the real thing but my boyfriend and me we enjoyed it a lot. The original version is even more sticky and sugary, so feel free to add a lot more sugar if you want to achieve that 😉 I made my version with regular lump sugar, which I crushed into even smaller pieces. This should be available everywhere, so get started!

I hope you will have a long relaxing and sunny weekend! Enjoy it 🙂

  1. I’m dutch and when I opened this site it was very funny because I was like „hey this is Dutch!!“ and I was a bit confused 🙂 .I’m very happy with the recipe because I can make suikerbrood by myself now, in some versions I ate were also raisins, so maybe an idea for the next time?

    1. Hahaha, nice to have a Dutch reader here, so I am not the only Dutch girl around 😉 I hope you will like this version, as I said it is not the „real“ deal, but we enjoyed it a lot! I had a hart time to find the right sugar and in the end just took the simple lump sugar as everyone has that at home 🙂 Raisins sound very good indeed, I will remember that for the next time, thanks 🙂
      Take care

    1. Danke liebe Laura 😉 Das Brot kommt vor allem im Norden in Friesland vor, man kann es aber auch im Rest von Holland kaufen 😉 GLG!
