Culinary Conversation: Help wanted — reader seeks recipe
On one occasion or another, we’ve all had this experience — a beloved product is no longer on the store shelves.

Spekkoek, or spice cake, is a classic Dutch specialty dessert that involves baking a cake in multiple thin layers. A thin layer of cake batter is spread in the pan and broiled until firm and golden. Then another layer is spread on top, and so on. The result is a toasty flavor and beautiful, intriguing pattern inside the cut cake.
