To make authentic stroopwafels, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 130g butter
  • 75g sugar

  1. Mix the flour, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm milk in a separate bowl.
  2. Add the yeast mixture, butter, and egg to the dry ingredients and mix until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  3. Cover the dough with a cloth and let it rise for 30 minutes.
  4. While the dough is rising, prepare the syrup. Melt the butter and sugar in a pan over low heat. Add the heavy cream and cinnamon and stir until the mixture thickens. Set aside to cool.
  5. Heat a waffle iron over medium-high heat. Roll out the dough into thin circles and cut them into waffle-sized pieces.
