Oude Wijven Koek
This is a picture of my favourite cake: 'Oude Wijven Koek', or translated 'Old Wives Cake'. Hahaha, it doesn't sound nice, but it tastes delicious! The ingredient that gives it its specific flavour is the anise.
The cake is a speciality of the Province of Groningen. And the best place to buy it is at the bakery! Don't go to the supermarket to buy the cake here, because those taste not nearly as good.
I never found a 'good' Oude Wijven Koek anywhere else in The Netherlands than in the Province of Groningen, and the best (in my opinion) is the one of Loppersum. All my friends and relatives knew this, so every time they visited me while I lived in The Netherlands, they brought a cake with them..... Yummy!!! Now they even bring it with them to Sweden for me! So sweet of them! :-)) I do miss it very much now I live abroad.... mmmmmm, seeing this picture makes my mouth water :-))
