How to make it

  • Proof yeast in 3 tablespoons water with 1 teaspoon sugar until bubbly.
  • Beat butter until light, adding sugar, salt and cinnamon.
  • Mix in the yeast mixture, flour and egg(s) and knead or beat well.
  • Set in a warm place for about an hour. It will not look like it's rising much; don't worry.
  • Meanwhile, make the syrup (stroop).
  • ......................................................................................................................
  • syrup
  • Heat cinnamon, syrup and sugar on stove and cook slowly until thickened a bit (about 10 minutes).
  • Remove from heat and beat in butter.
  • Should thicken as it cools, but still be slightly warm and thin enough to spread easily.
  • If it cools too much, reheat gently; if it thickens too much, add a bit of liquid.

  • to make
  • Heat wafel iron and oil lightly only once.
  • Using scoop to measure, place dough in center of heated wafel iron and bake for one minute (no longer, or you'll risk burning them).
  • When done, remove from iron, place flat on counter and immediately slice wafel horizontally into two thin wafers, using the sharp fillet knife.
  • Spread syrup on one cut surface, reassemble pressing gently but firmly, and trim to a uniform shape with the 3" cookie cutter.
  • Cool, at least slightly, flat on a rack before eating.

    I tried them out and it's not bad at all. The only thing I'm having trouble with is the crumbly/hardness of the waffle itself after it cools down. Are there any tips on how to get the waffle more chewy/bendable? I'm Dutch, and in Holland the stroopwafels are more chewy/moist than these.
    I'm using a Palmer iron (thin waffles). Is this waffel maker maybe still too thick for stroopwafels?
    Thanks!

    I lived in Montana where we had a dutch bakery. This recipe isn't very good compared to those. My whole family was disappointed. I found better recipes on other sites.
