Suikerbrood ("Sugar bread"; West Frisian: sûkerbôle,[1] French: craquelin) 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.[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] Traditionally, a suikerbrood is given as a present to the parents after a baby's birth.[6]
