Burnttwaffle's Official "Desert Waffles" Guide

Discussion in 'The Great Indoors' started by burnttwaffle, Aug 22, 2008.

  1. Special thanx to Starlore for inspiring me to make this my "other" last thread


    There are so many kinds of waffles, and waffles for different Ocasions that i figured i should seperate all the "official waffle guides"

    The Liège waffle (from the city of Liège, in eastern Belgium) is a waffle usually bought and eaten warm on the street. They are usually freshly made in small shops, but it is also possible to buy them in supermarkets. They are smaller, sweeter and denser than "Belgian waffles". The last-minute addition of nib sugar to the batter produces a caramelized sugar coating. This gives a distinctive flavor. Most are served plain, but some are vanilla or cinnamon flavored, and can be served with toppings like fruits, creams, and chocolate. The Liège waffle was invented by a cook of the prince-bishop of Liège in the 18th century.

    That my friends, is the pinnacle of desert waffles.:)


    This Liege Waffle Recipe comes from tadaaaa – the city of Liege in Belgium. Again the Liege waffle recipe is almost the same as the ordinary Belgian waffle recipe, just sweeter. Liege waffles are also smaller, so you can hold them in your hands. To make Liege waffles you have to add some extra vanilla sugar (What is vanilla sugar? – it is vanilla scented sugar. You can even make your own if you put a whole vanilla bean in a jar of white sugar for a week or so.) Liege waffles are a bit denser and also sweeter. A little piece of history before we start cooking, yeah it is always fun to learn new things – Liege waffles were invented in eighteenth century by one of the cooks of Prince-Bishop of Liege.

    Liege Waffle Recipe

    For a Liege Waffle recipe we will need:
    2 cups flour
    1 cup pearl sugar
    1 cup melted butter
    3 eggs
    1 (1/4 ounce) package yeast
    1/3 cup lukewarm water
    1 1/2 tablespoons sugar (add some vanilla sugar)
    1/8 teaspoon salt

    How to make Liege Waffles in nine easy steps:
    1. Take the lukewarm water and mix in yeast, 1 1/2 tablespoon sugar and salt. Let the yeast develop for 15 minutes. In the meanwhile you can melt the butter, but be careful - do not burn it.

    2. Now take a large bowl and put in the flour, make a hole in the middle, pour in the yeast that you made in step one. Also add eggs and melted butter and knead until you get nice and even dough. Then let it rest so the yeast does it's magic and the dough doubles.

    3. Now take pearl sugar and gently mix it in.

    4. Again, let it rest for 15 minutes, in the meanwhile you can turn on the affle maker so its nice and hot.

    5. All there is left is to pour the waffle dough into the waffle maker and bake for 3-5 minutes. Because we mixed in the sugar late in the process it will melt and caramelize and give that special Liege waffle taste. Just be careful when you take them out of the waffle maker, caramelized sugar can make them sticky.

    6. Enjoy!!

  5. All I know is my mom is famous for rocking these things ever since i can remember. .
    she just uses JIFFY cornbread mix and canned chili but here's an online recipe. . .

    Use these deliciously different waffles as a base for creamed chicken or turkey or serve with some of your favorite chili, greens, or pinto beans.

    • 1 3/4 cups cornmeal
    • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1 scant teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon sugar, optional
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 1/2 cups milk
    • 1 cup cream-style corn
    • 1 small can (4 ounces) chopped mild green chile peppers, undrained


    In a medium bowl, combine meal, flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar, if using. Inother bowl, whisk eggs with milk then stir in corn and chile peppers. Combine the two mixtures, stirring just until blended. Bake in a preheated, oiled waffle iron until crisp, following manufacturers' basic directions. Makes about five 6-inch Belgian style waffles with 4 sections each, or about 12 to 14 standard 4-inch waffles.

    While I make my chocolate cake from scratch, my scratch-made chocolate waffles have never quite measured up to these. My mother was always throwing random stuff into the waffle iron when we girls were little. Two of my favorites were devil's food waffles and cornbread waffles. We recently whipped up these chocolate ones.
    You just mix up devil's food cake mix as directed on the box, and use that as your waffle batter.
    We had these for breakfast with mounds of fresh honeydew and cantaloupe, but they're also delicious for dessert along with vanilla ice cream and/or whipped cream, and fruit.
