This morning we ate fresh stroopwafels, made in front of us at the Vredenburg market. They were heavenly! It could quite possibly be the most fun I’ve ever had for €2.
First the woman at the stall pinches off a piece of the waffle dough, places it on the waffle iron, and then waits a couple minutes for it to cook.
Then she removes the hot waffle from the iron and cuts it in half like an English muffin (I’m not sure how she manages this, seeing as the waffle is thinner than a pancake).
Next, she spreads the gooey caramel syrup (stroop in Dutch) across the middle. Finally, she sticks the two halves together and hands it over to you still warm.
