Point is, I finally made one of the recipes. BUT WHICH ONE?! Since I've been meaning to make speculaas since December, I guess it's not really a secret. But Dutch baking makes me so happy. There are so many things in my kitchen that are too specific to use most of the time, like the full sized salmon poacher, or the pepper mill, or the speculaas moulds or pretty much everything. So! I used four spices that were on the shelf that I've never used before, the special nutmeg grater that I have used before, the mortar and pestle which I'd never used before because it apparently doesn't work, but generally found that my kitchen was favourable to making Dutch favourites.
Such characters in today's tableau are: My favourite Emile Henry yellow baking dish! Using this always makes me happy. Alas, describing it as "my favourite" kind of implies that it is mine. Let me specify that none of this equipment belongs to me.
