Belgian Sugar Waffles

There’s a new food truck in our area that makes “Liege style” waffles. Thinking this sounds delicious but not having enough money to spend $35 on waffles for my family, I went about researching how to make Belgian sugar waffles. I bought an adorable little stainless steel Hamilton Beach waffle maker from Amazon for $20.Why spend more when this one is great!

The Belgian pearl sugar makes these waffles fantastic, but if you don’t feel like ordering it from the Amazon like I did, then just crush up some sugar cubes. Don’t be surprised that this makes waffle dough not waffle batter, and be careful, the little sugar pockets are hot!

Servings: waffles
Instructions
  1. Dissolve the yeast in warm milk. (I put my milk in the microwave for 35 seconds, then stirred it before adding the yeast.)
  2. Add the flour and salt to a stand mixer.
  3. Add the butter to the flour mixture and mix for about a minute until it's distributed evenly. Add one egg and mix until combined. Repeat with the other egg. Add the milk/yeast mixture and mix until all combined. Finally add the vanilla and mix for 20 seconds.
  4. Place a towel over the waffle dough and allow it to rise for 30 minutes in a draft-free location.
  5. Mix in the sugar to the risen dough until combined.
  6. Follow the manufacturer's directions to your waffle maker to cook your waffles. If you keep the "color selection" to the lighter side, the sugar will be less likely to burn. I placed just over an ice cream scoop sized ball of dough in each side of my waffle maker, and they cooked in about 3-4 minutes.
  7. I served my Belgian sugar waffles with ice cream and strawberries. It would also be so delicious with chocolate hazelnut spread, or whipped cream and caramel. Yum yum yum!
