Croquinole Syrup Coating


Croquinoles (Kro-ce-yoils) Cajun Doughnut is one of the more popular classic Cajun sweet pastries. My mother used to make croquinoles and make a Steen’s syrup coating to dip them in. They were gummy but good. Very good and even better if you add a little crushed pecan on each of them while still warm. This recipe is the second syrup coating recipe the site has to enjoy!


  • 1 cup Steen's syrup
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp butter


Step 1

Combine and boil sugar, syrup and salt over medium -ow heat, stirring constantly.

Step 2

Take the pan away from heat and test in a little cold water. It is the right consistency when a few drops form a hard ball.

Step 3

Add the butter, then coat each croquiole with syrup. A true Cajun classic!
