The secret recipe of Kamphuisen

For centuries the Kamphuisen Syrup Waffle has been a huge source of inspiration for many other syrup waffle bakers. It was different from the treacle waffle and stood out thanks to its crispy biscuit and tasty caramel syrup filling. Many bakers did their utmost best to copy the waffle. With little success. Over the years the recipe has painstakingly been kept a secret.

The recipe is hidden away in an envelope

Pieter Willem Kamphuizen derives immense pleasure from inventing a great recipe. After a lot of tasting and experimenting, he comes up with the Syrup Waffle. This biscuit consists of two waffles with a syrup filling. The Kamphuizen Syrup Waffle becomes a huge success. All these years the renowned recipe of the waffle has been kept a secret; in a sealed envelope from 1810.

Enjoy your visit

The fully mechanised syrup waffle machine is back in Gouda. In the town where Kamphuisen became great and at the very same address baker Verweij once used to bake the Kamphuisen Syrup Waffle – Markt 69 in the centre of Gouda – the Kamphuisen syrup waffle factory has opened its doors to the public. Thus, after an absence of six years the production of this Gouda delicacy has thankfully returned to Gouda, where is belongs. Jan Anker and his sons are happy to welcome you in the syrup waffle factory and hope you will enjoy your visit!
