Belgian Liege Waffles are made with yeast dough and pearl sugar. They have the perfect amount of chewiness and sweetness. Top them with strawberries, cookie butter, and whipped cream for the perfect treat!
After almost four very long days of my blog being down, which is just WAY too long to go without my blog, we are finally back in business! Jacob and I decided this past weekend to consolidate our hosting accounts into one. I quickly realized it was more of a pain than I thought it would be to transfer my blog to his account. I guess on the bright side I'll know how to transfer my blog the next time I change hosting companies. Needless to say, it's been a rough several days...plus I've been dying to share this recipe with you!
While today's recipe isn't exactly inspired by my travels (although I would love to visit Belgium), it is inspired by my love for Belgian liege waffles aka the waffles that Waffle Love is known for. My first time trying these waffles was at the Everything Food Conference last May. One bite and I was in well..."waffle love"! If you haven't tried a Waffle Love waffle, you are truly missing out on life! Waffle Love waffles aren't just any ordinary waffle. They are made with yeast and pearl sugar, which creates a truly satisfying and sweet waffle. I love these babies topped with cookie butter, strawberries and whipped cream. It's a match made in heaven.
So enough of my rambling, let's get to the point. I've had a jar of Trader Joe's cookie butter just sitting in my cupboard waiting to be used for liege waffles (obviously!) I've had a craving for "Waffle Love waffles" lately, but they never seemed possible to recreate until I found out the "secret ingredient" (ahem...pearl sugar). I then knew I was destined to make these bad boys ASAP! Also, as an extra special touch, I decided to trade-in my cheap-o waffle iron for one of these amazing ones. It's seriously the perfect waffle iron to make fluffy Belgian waffles with.
Now that I've got you craving sweet and sugary liege waffles, I strongly suggest you make these for breakfast this week! Seriously, you need this in your life right now.
