Liège Sugar Waffles

Belgian Waffles

Seems like last weekend was a waffle kind of weekend! I hadn’t had waffles for a long time but Marion suggested that a waffle recipe could be the next one on the blog so here we go! And I was really excited to make some in the end.

Makes about a dozen of waffles.

you'll need

  • 250g flour
  • 100g milk at room temperature
  • 40g brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 10g baker’s yeast
  • 100g soften butter
  • 110g pearl sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1tsp of powder cinnamon if you fancy including some


  • In a large mixing bowl, softly mix the yeast with the milk.
  • Next, add the flour, sugar, salt (+ cinnamon) and the egg.
  • Knead everything with a food processor, slowly and for about 5 minutes. Your dough should be soft and bouncy.
  • Add the butter and knead again until completely incorporated. The dough is even bouncier and a little sticky now.
  • Shape it into a ball and cover your mixing bowl with cling-wrap. Let it rise for a while (took 2h30 for me) with a warm tea towel on top. It should have almost doubled in size by then.
  • Unwrap your bowl and plunge a spatula in it to make the gas go away.
  • Stir in the pearl sugar and shape small balls (approx. 12) out of the dough.
  • Cook the balls with a waffle iron and you’re all set! Eat while it’s hot!

    Waffles!! <3
    Et en plus tu en fais une version "elevated", la gaufre de liège au sucre! Les miennes sont bien plus basiques et ne sont vraiment pas aussi jolies.
    Tu m'as donné faim pour la journée ;)

    • Oui c’est comme ça que je les aime!!
      Il faudra que tu les testes ;)

  • Ooh these look so delicious! I seriously need to invest in a waffle iron, although I’d probably exist on nothing else!
