1 Sweet And Decadent

1.1 True Belgian Waffles

Most people love Belgian waffles because of the deep pockets that hold lots of butter, cream, and syrup.  There are many different recipes around, but this one was given by a Belgian family.

It was taste tested by the Belgian grandmother in the States. She was so happy with the result because it ‘tasted like home.’

Be sure to try the recipe for yourself.

You’ll also need a waffle iron that makes the perfect Belgian waffle every time. For our top recommendations, read our reviews here.

1.2 Liege Waffles

Liege waffles are the waffles of all waffles. Because they are made with yeast,  it will take some time to let the dough rise.

If you want Liege waffles for breakfast prepare the dough the evening before.

The secret ingredient is pearl sugar that caramelizes on the surface and gives the waffle and incredibly crunchy and satisfying texture.

By the way, you can get Pearl sugar over on Amazon.

Anyhow, be sure to check out the recipe on

Traditionally, Liege waffles have a square shape. Our best recommendation for the best waffle maker would be the Breville Smart waffle maker. Please read the review here.

1.4 Delicious Buttermilk Waffles

Buttermilk makes everything so much tastier in my opinion. In this case, it helps to make the waffles crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.

Top it with soft salted butter that will melt as soon as it hits the surface and add some maple syrup. Can it get better than this?

1.5 Cinnamon Roll Waffles With Cream Cheese Icing

How does cream cheese, cottage cheese and a swirl of cinnamon sound to you? I think it sounds gorgeous.

This recipe is quick to put together and is very filling. I think it is a great twist on the usual waffle batter.
