Dutch buttercake frangipane is one of our bestselling cookies! This is a typical Dutch cookie (Boterkoek) and should be soft and chewy! When you bake them this way, than you understand what a real Dutch buttercake is. In the Netherlands this cookie comes in different flavors. The most common flavors are Vanilla, Almond paste and stem ginger. My customers ask for all kinds of flavors like Mango, lemon, keylime and frangipane. I have exchanged almond paste for frangipane, because almond paste is more sweet. In this authentic Dutch recipe I will guide you the right way how to make a Dutch buttercake frangipane.
Prepare Dutch buttercake dough
When I am preparing a recipe in general, I am always weigh or measure my ingredients up front. This works better and I won’t miss an ingredient. For this recipe I am using my Kitchenaid standmixer with paddle attachment. A handmixer is fine as well. This recipe does not need overmixing. Mix all the ingredients on low speed until incorporated. This is a 2 step recipe, so I am mixing first butter, sugar and vanilla extract until creamy! Then I mix salt with all purpose flour first and use this second. My butter cake dough is ready!
Prepare Dutch buttercake frangipane
Before filling my springform baking pan with dough, I am going to pre heat my oven on 350 degrees/ 175 celsius. I brush the bottom and sides of the baking pan with butter and cover the parts with parchment paper. After the dough is ready, I am deviding the dough in 2 pieces. 1 part for the bottom and 1 part on top. In the middle I am using another recipe Frangipane. Frangipane is almond cream and this cream makes cookie dough more chewy! Also this cream has bitter almond flavor like Amaretto liquor. There is no alcohol involved, but you do get the flavor. I only have to brush the top with egg wash and make a raster with a fork. Then this cookie is ready for the oven!
