Gingerbread Liege Waffle Recipe


makes 7 Gaufres Liège


  1. First, heat up the milk until it is warm enough to melt the butter. Stir butter into milk until melted. Add eggs, whisking lightly. Stir in the molasses and vanilla extract; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, yeast, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and salt. With the mixer at low speed, slowly add warm milk and butter mixture in a slow steady stream. Increase speed to medium and mix until the dough barely sticks to bowl, for approximately 7 to 8 minutes, scraping sides as necessary. Transfer dough to a lightly oiled bowl, cover, and allow to rise until double in size, about 1 hour.
  3. Once doubled, turn waffle iron on. Knead Belgian pearl sugar into dough and set aside to rest while the iron heats.
  4. Divide dough into 7 4-ounce pieces. Cook each portion until deeply golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Serve warm, plain, or with chocolate maple syrup or other garnish.
