Summary:

* Speculaas spice is Dutch spice mix which is used to spice food associated with the Dutch Sinterklaas celebration at December 5. The mixed spice is similar to Speculaas. If you can’t find either of the two, you can make your own mix with: cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger and cardamom.

Between Christmas and New Year’s Eve I usually make a break in unhealthy sweets and try something healthier like this Winter Speculaas Cake. It is healthy and delicious. The combination of spices suits this winter time perfectly: it will warm you up and satisfy your cravings for sweets.
