Cooking Made Easy: Gaufres de Liège

Did you ever notice there are so many different ways to make waffles? In Luxembourg we usually eat the square ones which you prepare with whipped egg whites while in Germany I mostly saw the flower shaped ones which are thinner but more compact. My favourites however come from Belgium and they're called after a city: Liège waffles. They are made with yeast and big chunks of sugar which caramelize during the making. Yum, yum, yum! I first ate them at the candy shop Pinky in Maastricht and having them over there has become a real tradition over the years. This weekend I tried to make them with my boyfriend and it was surprisingly easy!

500g flour
2 eggs
100g sugar
40g yeast
200g melted butter
200ml milk and 200ml water
1 pinch salt
200g pearl sugar

1. Dissolve yeast in milk and water.
2. Add eggs and sugar and mix. While mixing add the flour bit by bit.
3. Melt the butter for about 1 min in the microwave and add it to the dough. Mix it all with a pinch of salt and put the dough aside for about 30 mins.
4. Heat the waffle iron and grease it with some butter.
5. Mix in the pearl sugar and start making the waffles (1 tablespoon of dough per waffle). They'll take about 3 minutes.
6. Enjoy while still warm with some powdered sugar.
