Casteleijn Stroopwafels

Casteleijn Stroopwafels

These buttery-sugary-waffles are a typical Dutch top seller.  They come 8 in a packet and can be eaten when heated a little by placing it on your coffee cup or just like they are!

There use to be a lady at our local market making pizza-size stroopwafels, serving them still warm.  It is a true art to make them, and if you do see someone making them from scratch at a market, treat yourself with a helping.

A stroopwafel is one of the most popular cookies from the Netherlands.  Created by pressing a delicate vanilla and cinnamon dough between flame-heated waffle irons, the thin cookies are split in two and filled with a rich caramel.

Originating in the Dutch city of Gouda, the first stroopwafels were made in the early 19th century.  It is said that the first stroopwafel was created when a baker sweetened leftover breadcrumbs with a thick syrup. The cookie caught on quickly and within a few short years bakers across the country were making their own stroopwafels.

Today the stroopwafel is a Dutch staple often enjoyed for afternoon tea.

You can also buy the 8-pack in a tin (Blikjes Stroopwafels) - an ideal gift for someone.  We also have stroopwafels with Royal Icing decorations on.
