What sets Belgian Liege waffles apart from other waffles?

Belgian waffles are known for their light and airy texture, with a crispy exterior and a soft, fluffy interior. Unlike regular waffles, Belgian Liege waffles are made with a yeast-based batter, which gives them their distinct taste and texture. The yeast allows the batter to rise and creates those signature deep pockets that are perfect for holding syrup, fruit, or any other toppings you desire.

What ingredients are needed to make authentic Belgian waffles?

The key ingredients for authentic Belgian waffles are flour, eggs, milk, butter, sugar, yeast, and a pinch of salt. Traditionally, Belgian Liege waffles (Gaufres de Liege) are made with a special type of sugar called Belgian pearl sugar, which caramelizes when cooked and adds a delightful crunch to the waffle. They are so sweet that most don't add syrup or other toppings. 

What is the secret to the perfect Belgian waffle?

The secret to the perfect Belgian Liege waffle lies in the cooking technique. To achieve that crispy exterior and fluffy interior, it is important to use a Belgian waffle maker. These waffle makers have deeper grids than regular waffle makers, allowing the batter to rise and create those iconic deep pockets. Additionally, make sure to preheat the waffle maker and brush it with melted butter or oil before pouring in the batter. This will help prevent the waffle from sticking and ensure an even golden brown color.
