Suikerbrood ("Sugar bread"; West Frisian: sûkerbôlle or sûkerbôle[1], French: craquelin) is a yeast-based bread not unlike a brioche. It contains a significant amount of sugar, traditionally added as nib sugar, though sometimes sugar cubes are used.[2] While eaten throughout the Netherlands and Belgium,[3] it is especially associated with Friesland.[4] Suikerbrood is usually flavored with cinnamon[5] and sometimes with ginger.[1] A traditional use of suikerbrood is after a baby's birth.[6]
