Stroopwafels in English translated to Syrup Waffels are a famous old Dutch treat. Stroopwafels were invented in Gouda in the year 1784. The story goes that a baker in the city of Gouda made a biscuit from all the left over crumbs and spices then filled them with caramel syrup. The Stroopwafel started out as a sweet for the poorest people and eventually became the most popular tea or coffee cookie in Holland. They may seem exceptionally sweet to some people.

Traditionally, the Dutch eat them with a cup of coffee, tea, or Hot Chocolate Milk. The stroopwafel is the single best selling food item at Amsterdams Schiphol airport, and in all of the Dutch supermarkets. There are a lot of flavors of stroopwafels sold in Holland style containers, bags and boxes.

The Ingredients for the Biscuit
4 cups of flour
1/2 cup of sugar
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1 package yeast
1/2 cup of warm water

The Ingredients for The Syrup Filling
1 1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
6 table spoons dark corn syrup

Dissolve the yeast in warm water. Mix 1 cup butter into flour. Then add the sugar, eggs, and yeast mixture. Stir well. Set aside to rise 30-60 minutes. Roll dough into balls and bake in pizzelle iron. Make syrup. Boil all ingredients till at softball stage. Split waffles in two and spread cut sides with warm syrup. Then put the halves back together.

  7. I know I’m late to this post. Nevertheless, I’ve got a wildly interesting titbit of information for fans of the stroopwaffel & coffee treat. I am a fragrance reviewer/connoisseur. I emplore you to seek out a unisex perfume called New Haarlem by the niche/luxury perfumery house -Bond No.9. It is a very authentic take on this delicacy. It will blow your mind! Cheers!
