Where in the Word is Bakingdom? Stroopwafel Cupcakes {Updated}

by Darla

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for participating!

Stroopwafel Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Buttercream | ©BakingdomThis is it, my friends. This is your final clue for Where in the World is Bakingdom?

And it’s a doozy. I mean, really. It basically gives the whole game away. That’s why I saved it for last. ;)

Best for last.

Not just because it’s totally the giveaway clue, but also because these cupcakes are crazy amazing.

Stroopwafel Cupcakes | ©BakingdomI had my first stroopwafel just a few short weeks ago when my friend, Tina, learned where we’re moving to. She immediately sent me a wonderful little care package full of goodies, and my favorite, by far, was the stroopwafel.

Stroopwafels are these very thin, soft, yet firm, little waffle cookies. There’s actually two of them, and sandwiched between them…guess what there is. Caramel. Delicious, sticky, slightly salty, caramel goodness. It’s the perfect cookie. I want to buy a little bitty waffle iron…you know, the kind you make waffle cones with…and start baking my own stroopwafel cookies all day. Every day.

Salted Caramel Stroopwafel Cupcakes | ©BakingdomSince I don’t have a little waffle cone maker, yet, I made cupcakes instead.

Even though there wasn’t any cinnamon in the stroopwafel cookies I had, I felt like it was a flavor that existed happily in the stroopwafel world, so I added it to my cupcakes. I also used browned butter in the cupcakes, as opposed to plain, because I knew it would add the caramelized depth of flavor that you get in a wafel cookie.

Salted Caramel Stroopwafel Cupcake | ©BakingdomThen, I stirred some of my homemade salted caramel into some of my favorite buttercream. Because when would that ever be a wrong choice??

A few slices of tasty stroopwafel cookies and a little drizzle of caramel, and you have a new contender for the top five best cupcakes I’ve made thus far.

Yes, they’re that good. They’re super easy, too. The cupcakes took less than 30 minutes to make, even with baking time, and the frosting was less than 10 minutes. It helps to have the caramel already on hand, but if you don’t want to make it from scratch, then store-bought caramel works beautifully. Furthermore, these cupcakes can easily be replaced with a boxed mix, just stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon and you’re good to go!

Enjoy!

Cinnamon Browned Butter Cupcakes
with Salted Caramel Buttercream
Makes 1 dozen standard cupcakes

Ingredients

FOR THE CUPCAKES
1 1/2 cups (190 grams) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (100 grams) sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick or 113 grams) unsalted butter, browned
1/2 cup (113 grams) sour cream
2 eggs, at room temperature
1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla extract

FOR THE FROSTING
1/2 cup (1 stick or 113 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup salted caramel sauce
2 cups  (250 grams) confectioners’ sugar
pinch of salt
2 to 3 teaspoons (10-15 ml)heavy cream
1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla extract

To make the cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350 degrees (180 C). Line a muffin pan with cupcake papers; set aside.

In a large bowl, or the bowl of a standing mixer, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the butter, sour cream, eggs, and vanilla and beat until smooth. Scrape the bowl, making sure there are no streaks of flour remaining (do not over mix).

Place two tablespoons of batter in each of the paper liners in the prepared muffin pan.

Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and allow to cool completely before frosting.

To make the frosting: In a large bowl, or the bowl of a standing mixer, beat the butter and caramel together for 3 minutes. Beat in the sugar and salt until combined. Add 2 teaspoons heavy cream, and whisk on high for 4 minutes, until light and fluffy. If the frosting is too thick, add more cream, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

Stir in the vanilla.

Now I feel stupid for not commenting before, because when I read ‘poppy seed’ in the title two days ago, I immediately thought “Netherlands!” – my second guess would have been Italy, because of the lemons, but those are way less country specific than poppy seed. At least I have a shot today! :)
And wow, the Netherlands. That’s actually not too far from here (Germany), yet I’ve never been there. It’s so beautiful, though, you’re really going to enjoy it, I think!!

Reply

48 Kristina Toma July 13, 2013 at 2:14 pm

Oh! And when you get a fresh bag of stroofwafels, place one cookie on the top of a mug of freshly made coffee. The steam from the coffee will warm the caramel to soft gooey deliciousness, making the stroopwafel even more amazing.

Flowers and stroopwafels – must be the Netherlands! My grandparents live on the border to the Netherlands, the nature there is beautiful, however the cuisine is sometimes a little boring, at least in the countryside, so it is good if you bring your baking equipment and creativity with you! In Amsterdam, however, we always had delicious food!

Also typically dutch are ‘stroopkoeken’, they are almost the same as ‘stroopwafels’, but instead of a thin waffle cookie, you have more like a shortbread cookie. (like this: http://www.daelmansbanket.nl/our-range/caramel-biscuits/?lang=en )

I was saying California, but the obvious answer is the Netherlands…unless its the town of Solvang!

The Netherlands!! My own home country :-). I live in Amsterdam, but the best town in the Netherlands to buy stroopwafels is Gouda. I even think stroopwafels are originally from Gouda and there are still a lot of stroopwafel bakeries in Gouda (where they ONLY bake stroopwafels and nothing else).
I hope you enjoy the Netherlands and get to know a little of our own baked goods, such as tompouce (we eat it with orange icing to honour our Royal Family), Dutch apple pie, stroopkoeken (a variation on stroopwafels), Jodekoeken, boterkoek (some kind of reallyyyy buttery cake) and much more to enjoy!

Sounds like you are heading to Gouda in the Netherlands.

Definitely the Netherlands, but perhaps more specifically Gouda??? (by the way, if you are on a train there you should be listening for How-dah, not Goo-dah!)

The Netherlands! Be sure to try bokkenpootjes, poffertjes, moorkoppen, Zeeuwse bolussen and a tompouce (or ‘tompoes’ in a very Dutch way of writing it. Buy them in a bakery, those at Hema aren’t the ‘real’ ones to me) in Holland. Also celebrate ‘Koningsdag’ (used to be Koninginnedag (Queensday)) while you’re here. Have a safe trip!

Ooh, the Netherlands? So exciting! My mom brought these back when she visited a few years ago and it was hard not to down the whole box at once ;) I’ve heard you’re supposed to set them on top of a mug of hot coffee so the steam melts the caramel inside. Need to try that next time….

You’re going to the Netherlands?!?! Oh my goodness, sooooooo jealous! My best friend growing up was Dutch (she actually lives in Holland now) and I remember having stroopwafel with her. As well as the word poches (sp?) which is completely unhelpful as it means legs in Dutch. When will I ever need to use that word without at least needing one other word to go with it?

Congratulations on being sent to a beautiful country and HAVE FUN!!! I expect to see amazing photos of your travels and all the delicious food over there! :-D
