Ever since visiting Bruges in January, I have been dreaming about making the perfect Belgium waffles and this my friends, is it. Adapted from this recipe by Christina Cucina, the secret ingredient is the pearl sugar – an ingredient that is crucial to tasty and authentic Belgium style waffles. Waffles that omit this, do not even come close so it is worth hunting down this key ingredient (this is where I bought mine). These waffles are gooey, soft, addictive and when that pearl sugar caramelises, its like heaven on earth. Whenever I have one of these, I am thrown back to nostalgic memories of my magical time in Bruges, which makes me long for winter adventures in Europe, cozy winter clothes and of course, wintery themed sugar ladened food.
You will need a waffle iron to make these but for how amazing these taste, it is a worthy investment. I have made these with both non-vegan and vegan ingredients, so feel free to use whatever suits your dietary requirements. In Bruges they simply serve waffles with a dusting of icing sugar, because these beauties don’t need anything else, but I suppose if you are that way inclined, serve with ice-cream, chocolate sauce or fresh fruit.
