Suikerbrood – Sugar Bread

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

Suikerbrood ( sugar bread) is a yeast-based bread. It is a Frisian luxury version of white bread, with large lumps of sugar mixed in with the dough. It contains a significant amount of sugar, traditionally added as nib sugar, though sometimes sugar cubes are used. While eaten throughout the Netherlands and Belgium, it is especially associated with Friesland. Suikerbrood is usually flavoured with cinnamon and sometimes with ginger. Traditionally, a suikerbrood is given as a present to the parents after a baby’s birth.

The sugar used for this recipe is called pearl sugar and can be hard to find. Crushed up sugar cubes are a good substitute: add half a cup of cubes to a towel, fold it and give it a couple of good whacks with a rolling pin. Hand-fold these lumps in the dough after the first rise.

Suikerbrood is too sweet to eat for breakfast, but goes well with a cup of coffee as an afternoon treat.
