Ingredients: 375 grams butter, 1 vanilla pod, 500 grams white caster sugar, 12 eggs, 375 grams flour, 1 pinch of salt, 2 dessert spoons green food coloring, 3 tablespoons cinnamon, 5 teaspoons ground cloves, 3 teaspoons nutmeg, 3 teaspoons cardamom,
Preheat the grill to 220 degrees. Mix 375 grams butter with the seeds taken from 1 vanilla pod and 250 grams white caster sugar into a shiny mass. Divide 12 eggs. Mix the egg yolks with the other 250 grams white caster sugar to a foamy mass. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Mix the butter with the egg yolks and egg whites. Add 375 grams of flour and a pinch of salt. Mix together with a spatula. Divide the batter into 2 bowls. Add to one bowl 2 dessert spoons of green food coloring, and to the other bowl 3 tablespoons cinnamon, 5 teaspoons ground cloves, 3 teaspoons nutmeg and 3 teaspoons cardamom and mix it until you have a good batter, taste if it needs some more spices.
Grease a springform of 20 centimeter. Spoon a layer of green batter and place the springform at a top grit under the grill. After about 5 minutes you get the springform from the oven and it takes you one layer of the spiced batter. Turn it in the oven again for about 5 minutes in the oven. This you have to do layer after layer until you haven’t got any batter. After 5 layers batter put the springform in a lower grid under the grill. When the upper layer is ready, get the spekkoek from grill to cool. Enjoy!
