Stroopwafel

Stroopwafel

known as waffle made of syrup, molasse or caramel. It is made from two very thin layers of baked dough with a caramel syrup in between. The place of origin is the city of Gouda Holland, wherein first recorded. Many versions of this waffle are sold on the street as a snack.
It made its appearance in the late 18th or early 19th century by a baker who used leftovers of bread from the oven, made them crumbs and sweeten with syrup.
A story attributes the invention of Stroopwafel to the baker Gerard Kamphuisen, which puts history as date of first stroopwafel about 1810, the year in which the bakery opened. In 1840 we have the oldest known recipe for caramel waffle.
The 19th century Gouda was the only city in which they made waffles until 1870. In the 20th century, factories began to make stroopwafels. In 1960, there were 17 factories in Gouda and only four are currently still open.

Gouda Town

In the Middle Ages, a settlement was established on the site of the present city by the family Van der Goudé, which built a fortified castle alongside the banks of the river Gouwe, from which the family and the city took its name. The area, originally marshland, developed over two centuries. In Gouda there are historic churches and other buildings, and is a very popular destination.
