1: Making the dough

In the pan: Melt the butter, cool down a bit, mix with caster sugar and salt.

Mix the flour with baking powder, cinnamon, egg and beer (or milk). Add the butter mix from the pan until a smooth dough is obtained. Don't knead too long. Leave the dough in a bowl covered for 45 minutes at room temperature.

2: Making the Syrup

Melt the syrup, butter and caster sugar in a pan until the sugar is completely dissolved. Let the moisture boil out a little so that the syrup thickens.

Add the salt, cinnamon powder and vanilla and stir well. Allow the syrup to cool until it is lukewarm. Note: boiling syrup is 170 degrees hot. So never taste, but cool this first.

3: Baking

Shape the dough into balls of approximately 30 grams. Bake the dough balls into waffles in the waffle maker (180 degrees, 1 min).

Cut the waffles in half horizontally as quickly as possible after baking. Smear one side with the syrup, put them back together and press gently. Make a circle with the cutter. Keep the leftovers in a container.

Place your stroopwafel on your cup of tea or coffee for a minute.
