Croffle Recipe: Irresistible Croissant Waffles | Homemade Delights

Croffles taste like a beautiful mix of creamy butteriness and a subtle sweetness. The croissant dough contributes its own flavor, providing a buttery and flaky taste that is both delicate and fulfilling. The waffle iron crisps the exterior of the croissant dough, imparting a wonderful crunch to each bite. The subtle sweetness of the croissant dough comes through, providing a perfect balance that will tempt your taste buds.

Croffles’ attraction is heavily influenced by texture. The croffle’s outside layers are delicately crunchy, which contrasts with the tender, buttery layers within. Each mouthful exposes a delectable mix of textures—crisp on the surface, fluffy and soft on the inside. This texture mix offers a lovely mouthfeel that is both delicious and comforting.

Croffles are quite adaptable in terms of toppings and fillings. Simply coated with powdered sugar, drizzled on honey or maple syrup, or topped with fresh fruits, chocolate sauce, or whipped cream, they are delicious. For a pleasant twist, get inventive and add savory ingredients such as cheese, gammon or herbs.

 Croffle Recipe Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 pack frozen puff pastry dough
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar


  1. Cut the puff pastry into narrow, long triangles. Each section of puff pastry should be split into two triangles.
  2. Starting at the wide end of the triangle, roll the puff pastry to the short end. Each puff pastry sleeve should yield six triangles.
  3. Warm up your waffle maker.
  4. Sprinkle granulated sugar over your puff pastry croissants.
  5. Spray your waffle maker with nonstick cooking spray.
  6. Depending on the size of your waffle iron, cook up to two croissants at a time.
  7. Garnish with maple syrup.


Before making croffles, make sure your croissant dough is completely cooled. This will help keep the layers flaky during the process of cooking.

Before cooking the croffles, preheat your waffle iron to the specified temperature. This ensures even frying and a crispy outside.

Before adding the dough, lightly oil the waffle iron with cooking spray or brush it using melted butter to prevent the croffles from sticking.

Keep an eye on the cooking time & check the croffles frequently. Cook them in a hot waffle iron till golden brown and crunchy on the exterior, which normally takes a few minutes.
