Thursday - Stock up calories with a bossche bol

Cold weather, walks in the snow, temperatures below zero: that calls for a nice coffee with cake!

A very popular dessert in Holland is the bossche bol: a large choux pastry case, filled with whipped or Chantilly cream and covered (almost entirely) in dark chocolate.

It takes its name from the city of Den Bosch, which is the short version of 's Hertogenbosch (literally "the Duke's forest).

The place to go is a patisserie called Jan de Groot, not far from Den Bosch central station....however, and I am a bit ashamed to admit it, I also like the Albert Heijn version...
