We all love stroopwafels with a cup of coffee or tea – it’s a favorite Dutch treat. Try making them at home with this recipe!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup lukewarm milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
  • 1 cup molasses or black treacle
  • 1 ⅓ cups soft brown sugar
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine flour, 1 cup melted butter, white sugar, milk, egg, and yeast in a large bowl. Knead until dough is smooth and elastic. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise, about 45 minutes.
  2. 2 Heat treacle, brown sugar, 1/4 cup butter, and cinnamon in a small saucepan over medium heat until melted together, 3 to 5 minutes. Mix well until filling is smooth.
  3. 3 Preheat a shallow waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.
  4. 4 Knead dough briefly and divide it into balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, or as needed to fit your waffle iron.
  5. 5 Bake 1 ball of dough the preheated iron until golden brown and iron stops steaming, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove with a cake spatula. Press down with a round cutter to trim edges for a perfect circle. Carefully slice horizontally into 2 rounds while still hot. Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of the filling on each round and sandwich together. Repeat with remaining dough.

Chef's Notes

Making stroopwafels does require a special shallow waffle iron, as regular waffle irons will produce waffles too thick for this purpose. Try finding a stroopwafel iron, if possible, or improvise with either a pizzelle iron or waffle ice cream cone iron.
