25 Days of Holiday Goodies Day 9: Koek

25 Days of Christmas Goodies Button

Josh is French Canadian on his dad’s side of the family and Dutch on his mother’s side.  With the meatloaf recipe and a few others that Josh’s mom equipped me with, she included a couple of Dutch holiday treats.  The first is one that is a spice loaf cake, called koek.

The recipe makes two standard loaves, or, as I prepare it, one standard loaf and six mini loaves.  That way we have one to snack on throughout the season plus smaller ones to give as gifts.

The slices are great warm with softened butter (Honey butter or sweetened orange butter works great, too!).


2 teaspoons cinnamon, ground

2 teaspoons allspice, ground

2 teaspoons ground ginger

2 teaspoons nutmeg

2 cups brown sugar

1 cup white sugar

2 teaspoons baking soda

3 cups flour

1 1/2 cup milk

2 eggs

Mix ingredients together.  Pour into two loaf pans.  I usually make one regular-sized loaf pan and one pan of mini loaves.  Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 1-1 1/4 hours until cooked.

What is your favorite loaf cake or quick bread?
