Bossche Bollen History

According to Wikipedia, late in the 19th century, an early item of Bossche Bol was being sold in Den Bosch (A city in the Netherlands). A chocolate-covered pastry, filled with custard was being sold by a baker named “Lambermont”.

Another baker opened a shop in the same street and invented a variation filled with whipped cream, covered with chocolate. That was the first real Bossche Bol.

The name “Bossche bol” only became common when the treat became popular outside of the city. The exact recipe varies between bakers, although the recipe that is now acknowledged as the “real Bossche Bol” is the one made and sold by the confectionery Jan de Groot.

How to Eat Bossche Bollen

It is ideal to eat Bossche bol with your favorite cup of coffee, but people sometimes take it as a dessert after finishing the meal. But it totally depends on your choice of how and when you want to eat.

The traditional way of eating Bossche bollen is with the fingers. You can take it in such a way if you like but this way is a little bit messy. Habitual eaters suggest the upside down while eating it. It is due to a great reason, Bossche bollen is hard from the upside. So, it is great to put the hard side down to avoid spillage and messiness.


That was the tasty and my favorite Bossche bol recipe. Try this at home today with coffee on breakfast or after a meal. Take it with the help of a knife and fork and with your hands, the choice is up to you.
