This waffle is different from our traditional American Waffles. The Belgian Sugar (or "Liege" Waffle is a popular street-food across Europe. Served warm, plain or garnished with chocolate, Nutella, fruit, ice-cream or whipped cream, it is enjoyed by thousands of shoppers and sight-seers. To make this more authentic, you'll need to find Belgian Pearl Sugar (I buy it from or you can try crushing sugar cubes into small pieces. Made with yeast and lots of butter, these are a wonderful sweet treat. The pearl sugar melts and caramelizes as it's cooked in a waffle iron. We like them warm and plain with a fresh cup of hot coffee.


cups flour (I used unbleached flour)
1 package dry yeast (I used rapid-rise yeast)
¾ cup lukewarm milk
8 oz. softened butter (2 sticks)
2 eggs
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
cinnamon (optional--I don't use it)
1 bag (8 oz.) Belgian Pearl Sugar (Lars Own Brand recommended)
