Are you wondering what 'lukken/lukke' means? It’s derived from the Flemish word ‘geluk’ (luck). The butter waffles, called 'Lukken' in West Flanders, owe their name to a regional tradition. For over a hundred years it has been a New Year's tradition to bake these delicious waffles. The waffles were made to bestow luck on the recipient for the New Year, hence the nickname 'lukken'. Jules Destrooper thought that these wishes should not be restricted to New Year and West Flanders only, so he made sure everyone could enjoy these lucky waffles all year long. Today, Biscuiterie Jules Destrooper is proud to continue this tradition. That is why 'lukken' are still produced according to the same authentic recipe.
