Easy Liège Waffles
These Liège Waffles are a unique, European-style waffle that are caramelized on the outside and chewy on the inside. Be warned: these are so delicious, you will be ruined for any other kind of waffle.
Servings: 8 waffles
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons instant dry yeast
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup lukewarm water
- 3 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup butter melted
- 1 cup Belgian pearl sugar
In the bowl of a stand mixer combing flour, brown sugar, yeast, and salt. Mix together on low using the paddle attachment. Or stir in a large mixing bowl using a spoon or hand mixer.
While mixing, slowly pour in lukewarm water. Add in eggs and vanilla extract and mix until just combined.
Mix on low, adding in melted butter gradually until batter is smooth. Batter will be very thick and very sticky.
Transfer to a large un-greased mixing bowl. Cover and let rise for 1 hour, 30 minutes.
Use a large spoon to stir in Belgian pearl sugar until sugar is evenly distributed. Cover and let rise an additional 15 minutes.
Preheat a Belgian waffle iron and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Working one waffle at a time, scoop 1/4 cup of batter into the waffle iron. Cook until golden brown on each side.
NOTE: Waffles can be kept warm on a baking sheet in a 200 degree oven until all are cooked and ready to serve.
