Waffles are a popular pastry that is eaten in many different countries around the world. There are many different types of waffles, but the most famous are the Belgian waffle, the American waffle, the Liège waffle, and the Stroopwafel. Which one of them is considered the best? (Spoiler alert: the Stroopwafel is of course the best waffle out there).
The stroopwafel, a beloved Dutch pastry, has won the hearts of people worldwide with its irresistible combination of sweetness and chewiness. In this blog, we explore the history, craftsmanship, and sheer deliciousness of this iconic Dutch delight as it is the heart and soul of our Bakery, the oldest bakery in Amsterdam.
Stroopwafels are known worldwide as a delicious treat from Amsterdam. Although there are many variations of stroopwafels available nowadays, the authentic recipe from our bakery, the oldest bakery in Amsterdam since 1898, is definitely worth trying. We have adapted this recipe to be easily made at home!
In our bakery, the oldest active bakery in Amsterdam, we pay homage to the craft of baking. We do this of course with icons from the world of fresh bread and pastries. From Stroopwafels to an authentic baguette and from sourdough bread to a crispy fresh... croissant!
Before you enter our bakery, Hans Egstorf, you will undoubtedly look up once. The building, where fresh bread and pastries have been rolling out since 1898, was designed by architect Gerrit van Arkel. His characteristic style, often described as busy, richly decorated, and eclectic, has been defining for the bakery.
