A new addition to the family? Or perhaps another special occasion? Celebrate in style with this traditional Dutch dessert!
Bring 1.5 dl of water to the boil and then turn off the heat. Add the cloves, cinnamon and the zest of a lemon and leave to infuse for 1 hour. Next, strain the liquid and allow to cool. Meanwhile, separate the egg yolks from the whites and whisk the yolks in a mixing bowl, together with the caster sugar and a pinch of salt, until it develops a foamy appearance. Pour in both the wine and the water, whilst continuing to beat the mixture vigorously. Now place the bowl in a pan of boiling water and gently stir until the mixture slowly binds. Once the Kandeel has sufficiently bound, spoon into 4 coffee cups and serve with a tea or egg spoon. In the Netherlands Kandeel is traditionally enjoyed to celebrate the birth of a new baby.
