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.
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 🙂
