Speculaas waffles

Speculaas waffles.

Speculaas waffles.

I was recently very kindly sent a pack of speculaas spices by The Speculaas Spice company. I love the flavour that Speculaas spices imparts. I fell in love with the taste as a young teenager visiting coffee shops with friends and feeling chuffed to bits when we were given a free biccie with our coffees. Now of course I buy those biscuits and also the biscuit spreads too.

What to do with these spices? As it was morning and I was about to pop a crumpet into the toaster I suddenly thought why not get the waffle maker out of the cupboard and experiment.

Speculaas waffles

Flour and spices

Flour and spices


125g plain flour

1/2 tsp speculaas spice mix

1/2 tsp baking powder

10g caster sugar

240ml milk

1 egg

1 tbsp oil

pinch of salt

How to..

  • sift the flour, salt, spices and baking powder into a bowl.
  • Make a well in the centre of the ingredients. Break in the egg, pour in the milk and oil.
  • Whisk together until just combined. Don’t be too fierce as the waffles will be heavy.
  • Heat your waffle maker or iron.
  • Bake waffles according to the makers instructions.

Serve with a little icing sugar and a dab of butter if you wish.

The spice mix lends a real warmth to the waffles and they are truly delicious.

I was sent the spice mix by The Speculaas company as a free sample and was not asked to write a recipe of give positive comments in exchange.
