KBB # 11 : Ontbijtkoek

Here we go.... Klub Berani Baking's challenge # 11 : Ontbijtkoek!

This is my first experiment with Ontbijtkoek. Apparently, it's easy to make and the ingredients are so easy to find. My family really love it. I made this cake 3 times. The first one, I used brown sugar because I didn't have coconut sugar/palm sugar at the moment I baked it. The texture was so soft but a bit fragile to cut. And I think, I baked it too long (1 hour). The second attempt, I used different recipe (will post it soon) which doesn't use egg. The third times, I used the same recipe as the first time, the KBB recipe but now I have palm sugar :). The cake become more dense and dry, and the baking time took only 30 minutes. I don't know why it has different texture with the first one. Was it because of the sugar I used? And different baking time?

But overall, I'm satisfied with this recipe. And one more thing, I found out that the almond I spread before the cake goes to the oven is better way rather than waiting for 20 minutes in the oven as the recipe suggested.
