Recipe by:

We are officially fans of this stroopwafel banana bread. Super light, not too sweet and a delicious crispy caramel top.

Daelmans Stroopwafel Banana Bread


  • 3 small overripe peeled bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cups (spelt) flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 packet of Daelmans Stroopwafels or 10 stroops


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line the loaf pan with baking paper or grease it well.
  2. Remove the skin of the bananas and mash them finely. Mix the banana mash with the eggs, oil and vanilla extract.
  3. Add the flour, sugar, cinnamon powder and baking powder and mix well with a whisk.
  4. Chop the stroopwafels into pieces with a knife. Spoon about 2/3 through the batter.
  5. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and divide the rest of the stroopwafels on top.
  6. Bake for about 50 minutes in the middle of the oven.
  7. Remove the banana bread from the oven and allow to cool.

Daelmans Stroopwafel coffee pairing

One of our favorite ways to enjoy a Daelmans Stroopwafel on board is to warm it up over a steaming hot cup of coffee or tea. Daelmans calls it “wake the wafel”, a Dutch ritual to get more gooey goodness out of your stroopwafel.

A Daelmans Stroopwafel with a cup of coffee


  • Daelmans Stroopwafel
  • A cup of coffee or tea


  1. Start by placing your stroopwafel on top of your cup.
  2. Wait for about two minutes to allow the caramel to get soft — it will transform into a gooey, irresistible indulgence.
  3. Your wafel is now “awake.”
