This is another family favorite recipe that has traveled around the world....even to my son in the Marines Kuwait, then Iraq, and back to Kuwait. You can get the metal pan at Walmart---last time I purchased it was a $1.49. Mix, Bake, Cool, and Mail!

This recipe looks delicious! and easy to make! My mother in law loves butter cake and I am going to try this..thanks!

Hi, Axel!
You hit upon the BIG debate. Some Dutch cooks and bakers say butter is the only way. Others are just as emphatic about Imperial margarine. I've used both. I have also sprinkled the Boter Koek with sliced or slivered almonds.

This recipe sounds great, but would use real butter instead. Please thank your son and his buddies for serving our country so gallantly.

God Bless,
