  • Summary

    The Dutch Pastry is totally different then American pastry. From my experience the American cakes can be a tat bit too sweet, but that is just my opinion. And as far as icing goes, the Dutch usually use whipped cream. On birthdays and other special occasions, all kinds of cakes and cookies are eaten, including appeltaart, whipped cream cake (what you see here) , gevulde koek (cookies filled with almond paste), Kruidkoek, Limburgse vlaai, Spekkoek(from Indonesia), Ouwe wijven koek, Sprits, Tompouce, and Stroopwafels. The Dutch usually drink coffee and or tea with the cake. Dutch thrift led to the famous standard rule of only one cookie with each cup of coffee; it has been suggested that the reasons for this can be found in the trade-mentality and Protestant upbringing. A popular Dutch story (that has never been confirmed) says that then-Prime minister Willem Drees's wife served this to a visiting American diplomat, who then became convinced that the money from the Marshall Plan was well-spent. Cafe au lait is also drunk often. It is called Koffie verkeerd (Coffee-the-wrong-way-around).
