baking time.

Every body that knows me a bit better knows that I LOVE a nice coffee, but not only coffee I love home made baking as well. Love to bake but also love to eat it. Not good I know, but you only live ones isn't it.

This is a great Dutch recipe from speculaas.
If you feel like it here is the recipe:
300 grams self raising flour
175 gram soft brown sugar
1.5 tablespoon milk
200 gram butter
3 tablespoons "speculaas kruiden" or mixed spice
70 gram sliced almonds
1 egg
Mix the ingredients together and wrap in glad wrap for a few hours.
Roll out and brush with the egg and sprinkle with almonds.
Bake for 40 minutes on 175 degree.
Enjoy with a great coffee!!

This is the first time that I write in my blog.
I am Jacoline, me and my family emigrated to New Zealand from The Netherlands 3 years ago.
I can tell you, we went through some hard times in those 3 years, but we found our dream.

We bought a lovely home close to the beach. I spend a lot of time in our garden which has a lot of fruit trees, a nice vegetable garden and great flowers.

I love to shop in secondhand shops and garages sales are the best invention ever.
My days are filled with craft, cooking , baking and of course my 3 girls.
I try to have a beachwalk every day and on wednesday I join the quilt club.

We are still busy with rebuiling the house to make it a great home.
We like traveling and like to discover our new country.
I keep you updated with new stories, recipes, ideas and pictures every week.
