Liege Waffle



It has been a hectic week! Luckily, I still have time to make myself some delicious breakfast. I've seen this kind of waffle pretty often at the supermarket, under frozen food counter. At the beginning, I thought it was just a common waffle. Well, it does look like one ! Liege waffle is actually made of yeasted dough unlike those common pancake or waffle which is using baking powder. The texture is dense but I just love the way it is.

And here's the recipe which is adapted from The Dutch Baker's Daughter.

Ingredients :
2-1/4 tspn yeast
1/3 cup lukewarm water
1-1/2 tspn sugar
2 cups flour
1 tspn vanilla powder
1/4 tspn salt
3 eggs, lightly beaten
200gm melted butter
1 tspn vanilla extract
*1/2 cup sugar (add in 10 mins just before ironing)

Method :
(1) combine yeast, sugar and water, leave aside for 10 mins.
(2) then mix together flour, salt, melted butter, eggs, vanilla and yeast mixture; stir till well combined.
(3) leave to rest for an hour or untill well proved.


(4) finally, stir in sugar and mix well.
(5) now, you can start ironing the yeasted batter untill brown.

I normally will double up the recipe and then keep half of the cooked waffle frozen. Defrost them at anytime I want and serve with ice-cream or make sandwiches out of it. If not mistaken, Liege waffle burger is pretty popular at one of the restaurant in Vancouver.

While my kids love having them with honey or syrup for their breakfast. What would you like yours? :o)

Hi Kristy, Happy Mother's Day to you :)
Your Leigi Waffle looks so good. I usually like to add blueberry jam or maple syrup on the waffle.

Sam @ My Carolina Kitchen said...

I'm not familiar with this waffle Kristy. How interesting that it is made with yeast, which would explain why it is to fluffy. It's such fun to learn new things about foods.

Hope you had a wonderful mother's day.

Lovely looking waffles! I like mine with honey.

Kumi said...

What a cute and yummy-looking waffle!!

Barbara said...

Yeast waffles are the best, Kristy. I still make Marion Cunningham's recipe, but everyone loves them. Syrup on mine, please!

Lyndsey said...

Kristly this waffle looks interesting. I just got a waffle maker and have been researching different recipes. I first made some pumpkin waffles (my daughter's request) that didn't turn out so well. I think I'm a little hesitant to try again, but I will. I have seen some that call for yeast, and some with whipped egg whites folded in and many other variations. This one does look good, maybe I'll try it, and drizzle a little honey over it! YUM!

Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

Hayley said...

I like waffle, always buy from the stall in Tesco, with peanut butter and kaya inside :P

Ameena said...

Waffles are truly my most favorite breakfast food! Thank you for sharing your lovely photos and recipe.

I notice you are from Malaysia! I've visited there for the first time last year and can't wait to go back. The food, the hotels, the people...absolutely amazing!

Zoe said...

Kristy, Happy belated Mother's day! I hope that you had a wonderful day.

For a second look, I would never thought these are homemade. The honey drizzle on these waffles make them so irresistible!

lena said...

alison said...

Claudia : You too, honey.

Cheah : I am actually quite greedy. I love all kinds of spreading on my waffle. ha...

Kumi : Glad you like it too!

My Little Space said...

Barbara : I'll check on that recipe after this. Thanks for mentioning it.

Lyndz : pumpkin waffle! I think mashed pumpkin should get along with yeasted dough very well. You should try it again. Oh, is there egg white version as well! That's cool. I'll check that out.

Hayley : Those selling at the supermarket outlet is different from this kind of waffle. Those are common waffle made of baking powder, tastes like pancake and this one is made with yeast, taste like bread & pancake at the same time. Maybe you should try it some day. :o)

Ameena : Hi there, welcome to my humble little space. Yes, I am a Malaysian. Am glad you like it here too. Yes, the food in M'sia is heavenly. You're always welcome to visit M'sia again. Next time you should visit to Malaka, our historical state. Hope to hear from you more often.

Zoe : I wonder how much weight you have put on after the trip! ha... Looking forward to your up coming post.

Lena : The frozen ones are so expensive. If not mistaken 4pcs cost about RM7.00.

Alison : Hi dear, great to hear from you.

Jenny T : I have heard of pearl sugar but can't find it here though.

HH : Thank you, dear.

Emily : I guess we are! haha...

Nourhan : Hi there, welcome to my little space. Hope you will like it here and would love to hear from you more often.

Thank you everyone for visiting and spending your time here with me. I am truly appreciate it.

Hope you're all enjoy your visit and have a great day.

Blessings, Kristy

Hi I ate this at Belgium, really delicious, and 1st time I saw the yeast mixture. After mixed ingredients, I notice don't have waffle maker, so I use sandwiches maker.
Question: Yeast mixture is not as firm as yours, a bit soft? after proved notice in the bowl of mixture a lot of butter oil? is it over proved more than 2 hrs.
Thank you for you time

My Little Space said...

Hi Soh,
Welcome to my little space. Emm... you're having problem with your Belgium waffle! Actually, there's nothing wrong at all with your dough. Btw, I'm not sure which recipe are you using because some yeasted waffle do add in liquid like milk. While mine is without any milk. So, it's not too runny.
Secondly, it's OK if the yeasted dough is over proved for one or two more hours. It's best to keep them chilled if you're unable to iron it in time, the next time. :o)
Or maybe you can try my recipe and compare the difference. Wish you luck!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you're having a great day.
Cheers, Kristy
