Ontbijtkoek is a type of cake. The cake is a Dutch gingerbread also known as ontbijtkoek, peperkoek, sweet cake, snack cake, honey cake, spice cake or pound cake.

Gingerbread is made from rye flour, to which sugar, glucose syrup, fructose syrup, candy, spices and raising agents and possibly wheat malt flour (for the colour) have been added.

Gingerbread varieties have additions of apple, ginger, nuts, raisins, cinnamon and other spices.

Gingerbread in the Netherlands
Koninklijke Peijnenburg B.V. is the Dutch market leader in gingerbread. Bolletje is in second place, followed by Modderman.

Many Dutch households have a special gingerbread tin to protect the food from drying out. This elongated bread-shaped drum used to be made of tin and later of plastic.

Gingerbread in Belgium
In Flanders and in the south of the Netherlands, gingerbread is called Peperkoek, which is the general Middle Dutch name. In the Kempen people used to speak of pound cake, because the cake was cut and sold per pound. Well-known producers of this are Vondelmolen, Meli and Lotus Bakeries.
