caramel or dark corn syrup and melted together. Sometimes, hazelnuts or honey are added to the filling. The steam warms and melts the interior layer of the cookie, making it warm and gooey.

If you do not have the patience to wait that long, stroopwafels are delicious right out of the package. Crack open a pack of Dutch treats from L’Orenta.

How do stroopwafels taste?

You can prepare Dutch Stroopwafel cookies with butter, yeast, granulated sugar, eggs, and flour. You can then fill them with molasses, brown sugar, and cinnamon for a rich caramelly filling. The waffle resembles a sugar cone and a Belgian waffle.

The waffle component of this syrup waffle is sweet and buttery, with a hint of cinnamon. And biting into the sweet filling would be a delightful surprise.

What is the best way to eat a stroopwafel?

A cup of coffee or tea is the traditional accompaniment to a stroopwafel. When your drink is hot and steamy, cut the waffle in half and place it above your cup. Allow it to get warm and soft, maybe turning it after a minute. A delightful thing will happen: the crisp cookie will soften to perfection, and the inner caramel will melt flawlessly.

The mild bitterness of coffee or tea goes well with the rich sweetness of syrup waffles. It is the traditional way to eat a stroopwafel. But it is not the only one. If you need a quick snack, you can also have this golden-brown snack with vanilla ice cream or just plain. Drop one in a mug of hot milk and watch it melt into velvety hot chocolate. It would be the ideal companion to the caramelly stroopwafel and your key to a good evening at home.

stroopwafels, you may always try making them at home. These delightful sweets originated in the little Dutch city of Gouda in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Since then, not much has changed. The Caramel Stroopwafel represents our Dutch heritage created using family bakery recipes, and L’Orenta Nuts provide the best recipe for stroopwafels.


For the caramel waffle cookies:

  • 25 grams of the fresh yeast cake.
  • A tablespoon of lukewarm milk
  • 125 grams of unsalted butter.
  • 75 gm superfine or granulated sugar
  • A large egg at room temperature.
  • 250 grams of cake flour.
  • A pinch of salt
  • A teaspoon of unsalted butter for greasing.

For the filling:

  • 200 grams molasses or corn syrup
  • 125 grams of brown sugar
  • 100 grams of unsalted butter
  • A teaspoon of ground cinnamon

Steps to Make It

Make the Waffle Dough 

  • Gather the ingredients.
  • Take a medium mixing bowl of a stand mixer, and dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm milk.
  • Add the sugar, butter, and beaten egg.
  • Mix and then stir in the flour and salt in the mixing bowl of the stand mixer.
  • Cover the dough with a warm, moist dishtowel and allow it to rise in a warm place for 45 minutes to an hour.

Make the filling

  • Gather the ingredients for the syrup filling.
  • Warm up the molasses and stir in the brown sugar, dark corn syrup, butter, and cinnamon.
  • Set aside to cool down a little.

Cook the waffles

  • Form the dough into a large, marble-sized soft-ball stage and place it on a greased and warmed cookie sheet. The dough on the soft-ball stage should not touch each other
  • Again, cover the dough balls with a warm, moist dishtowel and allow them to rise for 30 to 45 minutes
  • Grease and heat the waffle iron
  • Place a dough ball on the iron and bake until golden brown. It should take about 2 minutes in an electric waffle cone iron or 3 minutes in a stovetop version
  • Take it out of the waffle iron and cut the waffles in half (horizontally). Smear with the syrup filling, and sandwich the halves together, pressing lightly

How do you store stroopwafels?

We recommend storing your thin waffle stroopwafels in a cool and dry place, preferably in the refrigerator. Microwave them for a minute before enjoying them.

If you have never had these stroopwafel Dutch treats, we are a little excited for you since it means you will get to try one for the first time. If you cannot enjoy your stroopwafel straight from the waffle cone iron, rest one on top of a hot cup of coffee or tea for a few minutes—it is an old Dutch trick that works every time.
