Butter Cake, Dutch (Boterkoek) (D, TNT)
Source: Recepten uit de Joodse Keuken , by Polak & Polak
Serves: 8

300g all-purpose flour
250g butter
250g sugar
small bit of salt (optional)
some tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F). Mix butter and sugar very well. You can use a hand held mixer. Add flour and salt gradually. Make a really smooth dough (not crumbly).

Take a shallow pan (I use an 8" round pan) and smooth the dough into it. Use the milk for glazing the surface.

Put the cake into a cold oven on the uppermost shelf and bake for 25 minutes. It should be brown on the outside and still soft on the inside when done.

Variation:
Use 125g chopped candied ginger and some of the juice to spread over the cake before baking.

Poster's Notes:
Here then is the calorie bomb (a must at Kiddush, with coffee on Shabbat, etc.) Sorry, I can only do metric.....
