Gaufres de Liege

After getting totally addicted to Belgian waffles while in Brussels (see here, here and here), I was totally geeked to find a recipe and tutorial for Gaufres de Liege at notmartha.




homemade belgian waffles

Jodi came over on Sunday afternoon to test the recipe and we received raving reviews from my sister and our friends Drew and Kathy.




crazy trio

The one tip that I can add to the recipe is to pull the waffles out of the iron sooner rather than later to get that soft dough-y inside.

The waffles were totally delicious and just like the gaufres de liege in Brussels!

  4. Oh my, I think I have to make these! My sister got me a waffle iron last Christmas (2008) and I haven't used it yet. Can I sue a standard waffle iron?
    My husband was born in Hong Kong and came to the US when he was 11 yrs old. He went back for the first time in 2004. We had so much fun and he kept dragging me to these street food stands to try all his favorite things. There is this Waffle that he remembered so fondly and he was in heaven when he got to eat it again. My family in Hong Kong made fun of him because to them, that is just another common street food.
