What are Liege waffles?

  • Liege waffles are smaller, richer, denser, sweeter, and chewier.   It was invented by the chef on the prince-bishop of Liege in the 18th century as an adaptation of brioche bread dough.  One of the ingredients are chunks of pearl sugar which caramelize on the outside of the waffle when baked. They’re perfectly delicious plain as it is with toppings.
  • Today the Liege waffle is a popular street-food across Europe. Served warm, plain and often garnished with chocolate, Nutella, fruit, ice-cream or whipped cream.
