These homemade Dutch stroopwafels consist of a thin layer of sweet caramel syrup in between two warm cinnamon waffle cookies. You won’t be able to resist the ooey-gooey goodness of this sweet treat!
When it comes to kitchen appliances I like to keep things simple. As long as I have a blender, mixer, waffle iron, and pressure cooker I'm good.
But this last week, I decided to purchase a new appliance that doesn't exactly have a lot of purposes. I simply needed to have it.
It was a waffle cone iron...that I swore I'd never buy. But I've been dying to share one of my favorite treats with you: Dutch stroopwafel. And you simply need to have a waffle cone iron to make the treat (I guess I could use it to make some actual waffle cones for homemade gelato as well!).
If you've never heard of Dutch stroopwafels, or "syrup waffles", they are made with two thin layers of baked dough with a caramel syrup filling in between. You may have seen them on Amazon or at Costco before, but obviously, those ones aren't nearly as good as a freshly-made stroopwafel.
Ever since I had a real, warm, ooey-gooey stroopwafel in The Netherlands a couple of years ago, I've wanted to share this recipe with you so that you can enjoy this delicious goodness as well!
I'll admit, I always thought homemade Dutch stroopwafels would be super complicated, but as long as you have waffle cone iron you're good to go.
Now traditionally, you would slice the waffle in the middle so that you have two thin waffles and you'd put the caramel syrup in between them.
But...let's just say I tried slicing waffles twice and failed miserably both times, so I decided to make things simple for myself and just use two of the waffles without slicing them instead (patience when it comes to baking and cooking is tough when you're pregnant!). So if you have a trick for slicing the waffles, let me know. The stroopwafels are certainly thicker this way, which means you may want to cut them in half and share them with someone if you don't want to have a crazy sugar overdose.
It's time to pull out the waffle cone or pizzelle iron (yes, you can use this too!) that's been gathering dust in your cupboard, and start making some homemade Dutch stroopwafel! I can guarantee you'll have a hard time resisting these sweet treats.
How do you eat a stroopwafel?
Traditionally, the Dutch like to enjoy stroopwafel by placing the cookie on a cup of hot and steamy coffee or tea. After a few minutes, the cookie starts to warm and soften - making it a real treat!
