Traditional Dutch waffle cake

A simple cake made with pieces of Dutch waffles

Prep time15min
Cook time1h
Total time1h 30min


  • 200 grams butter
  • 200 grams sugar
  • 200 grams baking flour
  • 4 medium sized eggs
  • 4 Dutch waffles (Caramel syrup)


  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C for an electric oven, 140°C fan oven, or gas oven 2-3.
  2. Grease the cake tin with butter and lightly dust the inside with flour.
  3. Mix the butter with the mixer in a mixing bowl until soft and creamy.
  4. Add the baking flour, sugar and eggs all at once.
  5. With the mixer on the lowest setting, combine all your ingredients for 30 seconds.
  6. Then mix it with the mixer on the highest setting for 2 minutes until it forms a light dough.
  7. Cut 2 waffles into small pieces. Just really rip or cut those waffles into small pieces! Or (if you're in the Netherlands), buy the bags of small pieces like I do.
  8. Put the pieces into the dough and mix it all together.
  9. Put it the dough into the cake tin and spread it out.
  10. Cut the remaining 2 waffles into small pieces (RIP THEM APART, HELL YEAHHH!!!) and add the pieces to the top of the dough and push it a little into it.
  11. Put your cake into the oven for 60-70 minutes.
  12. When the time is up, get them out and get a knife around the cake so it won't get stuck on the cake tin.
  13. Take your cake out the tin and allow it to cool down for some time.
  14. Ready to serve!
