Buttercake

Dutch Buttercake

Delicious and very calorific, but a little goes a long way.

Great served with a cup of English tea, also keeps a long time in an airtight container.

175g plain flour
150g light brown soft sugar
150g butter, cubed
Pinch of salt

•    Add the flour, sugar, salt and butter in a bowl and knead all together with a cool hand until it forms a ball.
•    Press the ball into a 22cm diameter shallow cake form.
•    Glaze with the egg.
