Liege Waffles and Giveaway #6

Liege Waffles and Giveaway #6

Caramalized Sugar Liege Waffles

While my husband and I were dating, we decided to take a train trip to Paris. I picked up some of these Liege Waffles before the trip, thinking they were just typical waffles. Oh. Was I wrong.

If you have never had a Liege Waffle you are not living. There is no need for syrup in these babies. The large sugar pieces caramelize during cooking creating this sweet crunch in the waffles.

Sweet Liege Waffles

In order to make these waffles you have to use the large pearl sugar, otherwise they will not be the same.  I was soooo excited when I found Lars’ Own Belgian Pearl Sugar on a trip to San Francisco. I have since realized that it is easily ordered on Amazon. Looks like I won’t have to wait another 10 years before I have one again!

    I’ve always wanted a waffle maker but couldn’t quite figure out the one to buy. This one is definitely at the top of the list and my fingers & toes are crossed. Thanks for sharing, especially the photo from Paris…so cool.
