Bossche Koek: A Well-kept Secret

more than a year ago
Already five centuries ago, painter Jeroen Bosch had access to a rich cake locally known as Bossche Koek. Famous bakeries in Den Bosch baked this delicious treat and for generations the recipe was a well-kept secret passed from father to son. Sadly, most of these well-kept secrets were lost. In modern times, however, the De Backer family still use the same traditional Bossche Koek recipe as their ancestors did centuries ago. Bossche Koek is baked in a wooden cake tin (like a small box), which keeps the cake fresh much longer. Enjoy it with a thin layer of butter, as this brings out its delicious flavour. The genuine Bossche Koek is available at various bakeries in the city.
