Belgian Liege Waffles Recipe
Liege Waffles are not like common American waffles, everybody loves to have for breakfast.

They are incredibly delicious and easy to make! My recipe and a step-by-step video will help you to make the Best Liege waffles. Even if you are new to cooking, you will be over the moon with the result.
Liege Waffles without Pearl Sugar
This is my twist on Liege waffles, the recipe doesn’t call for pearl sugar and making dough overnight. For the first, I am a busy working mom of two adorable boys and I always try to cook flavorful and delicious food without spending the entire day in the kitchen.
For the second, I try to avoid fancy ingredients like Pearl sugar in my recipes. This is the main reason why I didn’t include it. The toppings like honey or maple syrup will make these waffles sweet enough and taste incredible. But if you have Pearl sugar in your pantry, go ahead and add it.
Tips for Making Liege Waffles
Dough: You can knead it by hand or in a stand mixer. I recommend to do it by hand as it takes only 5-10 minutes. You can do it in the same bowl without transferring the dough onto the surface. It takes usually 30-45 minutes for the dough to rise.
Yeast: I prefer to use instant dry yeast, because you can use straight from the packet, simply mix it with flour without dissolving in the water and waiting for it to bloom. If you don’t have it, resort to active dry yeast. In this case, combine 1 tbsp. of active dry yeast with the warm milk and wait for 10-15 minutes or until the mixture gets frothy.
Cooking waffles: I don’t have a Belgian waffle Iron, I cooked waffles in a regular Russell hobbs waffle maker. The result was absolutely Fantastic! Just make sure to spray iron with a non-stick spray before cooking to prevent waffles from sticking. I did it just once at the very beginning, and surprisingly waffles didn’t stick at all. I should say it is much easier to work with this waffle dough than with regular waffle batter.
Serve it with your favorite toppings. The options are countless.
- Powdered sugar
- Maple syrup
- Whipped cream
- Peanut butter
- Fruit like strawberries, kiwis, bananas or blueberries
- Ice cream
- Vanilla curd
