This may be a long shot, but here goes!

I've been looking for recipes to make stroopwafels (really thin waffles with syrup sandwiched between them. Tried them in Amsterdam, and I'm addicted!). I've not had a problem finding them, but they all require a waffle maker.  I don't currently own one, and they've proven tricky to find this side of the pond, and seem to be quite expensive.

What I want to know is:

Is it possible to make successful waffles without a waffle iron? I know they'll lost the waffly pattern, but it's the taste I'm after, more than anything.

you could always try making them as pancakes/crepes.  They might have the same flavor.  Although, I don't know if you could get the pancakes to crisp up the same way and that could effect the taste.  The other thing about waffles is that the topping gets all up inside the nooks and crannies.  You wouldn't get that with a pancake. 

I think it's worth a shot though!

Hmmm. Awhile back I made some pancakes, without considering first that the recipe would produce waaaay too many pancakes for my husband & me to eat. So I froze the extras, and popped them in the toaster when I wanted to eat them. They came out a bit crispy like waffles and lost that pancake-y texture. If you're willing to devote a lot of time to your waffle project you could try making pancakes out of your waffle batter & freezing them. It might be worth a try anyway Smiley
