It’s almost November. That means I’m allowed to buy speculaas. If you’re talking about typical Dutch, this is it. Nowadays available all year round, but traditionally available in the run up to Sinterklaas on December fifth. I bought speculaasbrokken at Proof Bakery (also known as coffee bakery in this home). The idea is to break the large piece into smaller ones before serving. A perfect companion to coffee. Or lemonade.
