Belgian Waffles

I helped John make Belgian Waffles last weekend for a party. This is one of John's specialties, although I've never had them before.

I'm sold. These are wonderful. Unfortunately, I'm not sure where the recipe came from, so I'm not going to share it (mine is photocopied from a Belgian food cookbook, and my recipe is called "Sugar Waffles from Liege"), but I'm sure you can find one at the library or online.

It's a pretty odd recipe, with two batters that you mix at the last minute. It doesn't feel anything like waffle batter, instead it makes a really sticky goo. But it bakes wonderfully, and tastes perfect. No syrup needed. The only unusual ingredient is pearl sugar, which John ordered online, but you might be able to find if you live in an urban area. Definitely worth a try.

It looks like it is from the Everybody Eats Well In Belgium cookbook. Can't wait to try this recipe!
