Belgian Liège waffles

Liège waffles are one of the two most popular waffle varieties in Belgium. These unevenly shaped, chewy treats are made with a thick, brioche-like dough which is sweetened with pearl sugar and baked in a specially-designed waffle pan.

During the baking process, the pearl sugar melts and gives the waffles a unique caramel flavor.

Although the origin of Liège waffles is somewhat vague, it is believed they were influenced by French culinary traditions and made famous by the skillful Liège bakers. 

In Liège, these waffles are usually enjoyed plain, but they can also be topped with powdered sugar, whipped cream, chocolate, or various fruits.

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

1kg white flour

75g fresh yeast

5dl semi-skimmed milk

4 sachets vanilla sugar

2 eggs

500g margarine or softened butter

DIRECTIONS ON BELGIAN LIÈGE WAFFLES

Use a small amount of warm water or milk to dilute the yeast. Mix flour, milk, vanilla sugar, whole eggs and diluted yeast to make yeast dough. Leave it to rise for 15 minutes at room temperature.

Add the softened butter or margarine, 200g of flour, cinnamon or vanilla, honey, salt, and bicarbonate of soda into the dough. After kneading the mixture, allow the smooth dough to rise for another 10 minutes.

Fold the dough into the pearl sugar and divide it into 90 to 140 g pieces (taking into account the size of the waffle iron).

Bake the waffles in a preheated waffle iron.
