The Dutch aren’t known for their cuisine, but the few foods they are known for, are pretty good! Now, stroopwafel or caramel wafers are available in pretty much all British supermarkets, however, those are so far away from how they are traditionally made and are completely different from the real stroopwafels that you can buy on the streets of The Netherlands. The real ones are so much bigger and better! At the weekly market in Leiden, there is a well known seller of stroopwafel, who makes them fresh to order. As you approach the stall, the smell of melted caramel and caramelised biscuit is irresistible! I wasn’t sure I could recreate the recipe in my tiny kitchenette, so I asked if I could make one for myself at his stall. I have definitely eaten enough stroopwafel this year to last me a lifetime!
