A Dutch delicacy, ‘stroopwafels’ are waffles made from two thin layers of baked dough with a caramel syrup filling in the middle. And now there is a certified gluten-free version available in Victoria, BC thanks to Wooden Shoe Deli!
“The stiff dough for the waffles is made from flour, butter, brown sugar, yeast, milk, and eggs. Medium-sized balls of dough are put into a heated waffle iron and pressed into the required uniformly thin, round shape. After the waffle has been baked, and while it is still warm, it is split into thin layered halves. The warm filling, made from syrup, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon, is spread between the waffle halves, gluing them together. Placed over a hot drink such as coffee or tea, it serve to warm the cookie up and soften the syrup.” 1
